Whether you are an accomplished sew-er or relatively new you’ll LOVE the overlocker! We wear stretch fabrics more than any other so why aren’t we sewing with them more? The overlocker will make sewing with stretch your favourite pastime!

Our overlocker classes do require a bit of prior experience which is why they are a Level 2 class, but you don’t have to be a sewing expert to try your hand at one of these overlocker classes!

The overlocker has been terrifying sew-ers for years and that’s because they have 4 threads instead of two…and they look a wee bit scary, we totally get it! But once you’ve had a shot of one you will wonder what all the fuss was about!

It’s great for quick makes! Only have a short afternoon to sew and what to actually get something finished? The overlocker is your quick make mate!

In our 3.5 hour overlocker for beginners class you will learn how to thread the machine from scratch, how to change the threads without de-threading and then we will go over how to use the machine to make yourself something - 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 come to class with you 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 - !

Top 3 Overlocker Class FAQs

Q. I have an overlocker already, can I bring it to class?
A. Yes you can! You can let us know whether you want to bring your own or use our when you book.

Q. I don’t have an overlocker yet should I buy one before I come to class?
A. Nope, it’s not necessary to already own an overlocker before you come to the class. I’d actually recommend holding off buying one as there are a lot of rotten machines out there and we can steer you on the right direction, machine wise!

Q. I’m still a beginner but I really want to learn how to sew stretch fabrics, am I good enough for the class?
A. As long as you have a few projects under your belt(such as our beginners course) then you’ll be fine on the overlocker class. If you’re unsure at all let us know what you have done in the past and we can put your mind at ease -
