Unlock the secrets of your most feared machine in the Overlocker Basics course!
Over four lessons, you’ll learn all the tips and tricks you need to show that overlocker who’s boss including threading, finishing, a wide variety of stitches and functions, gathering, elastic insertion and much more. We’ll sew a bunch of quick and fun projects with a “reduce waste” theme including fabric ribbon, snack bags, ‘un’-paper towels, a bowl cover and more.
The classes have been designed to balance all the necessary theoretical content and practical skills so not only do you KNOW how to use your overlocker, you also UNDERSTAND how it works.
As always, you’ll receive comprehensive class notes at each lesson that you can refer to as you practice your new skills in all your future projects.
