Know Your Overlocker

Friday 30 November
10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Know your overlocker – Overlockers are amazing machines that can stitch, trim and neaten seams all in one operation. Yet so few owners fully understand them or use them to their full potential. Most people who have overlockers only use them for neatening edges but they can do so much more. This workshop teaches you to get to know your overlocker.

Other functions include sewing in elastic and lace trims, creating decorative seams on sports and casualwear, rolled hems on evening wear, and making home furnishings. Not to mention being able to sew up jersey fabrics quicker and more neatly than your normal domestic sewing machine.

But overlockers are more complicated than normal sewing machines. They require a good understanding of how changing the tensions creates different stitch types. So I’ll teach you to understand how the tension settings affect the stitch type and quality, how to recognise and obtain correct tension. We’ll also look at different stitch functions and their applications. So you really do get to know your overlocker and discover just how versatile they are.

What will I learn?
Know what all the parts do
How to thread it and obtain the correct tension
Sewing knitted fabrics
Basic edging and seaming operations using 2, 3 & 4 threads
Flatlock and blind hemming
How to add decoration to your clothes
The afternoon session will give you time to review and practise the techniques covered in the morning.

Course arrangements
You must be able to bring your own 4-thread overlocker to this class.
