Probably one of the most terror inducing machines but you needn’t be scared of the FABULOUS overlocker! Whether you are new-ish to sewing or you’ve been sewing forever you’ll love getting to grips with the overlocker in our overlocker class!


You need a little bit of sewing experience to do this class but if you’re unsure just get in touch and we’ll put your mind at ease!

In our 3.5 hour overlocker for beginners class you will learn how to thread the machine, how to change the threads without de-threading and then we will go over how to use the machine to make yourself something lovely - either a slouchy tee or a stretch pattern of your choice(you’ll get it started but maybe not finished depending on the pattern!). Please have your pattern cut out and ready to go. We’ll email you more info about this upon booking!

Please note that as we allow people to bring their own overlockers to this class we cannot go over more advanced stitches on individual overlockers. You can however book in for a 121 to learn more about your own overlocker. Just get in touch for more info - !
