Regular price £30.00

 Have a new Overlocker and aren't sure how to use it? Then this Workshop will be an invaluable help and save you spending wasted hours trying to fathom out how to get the best from your machine.

Bring your Overlocker along with you together with the instruction manual and Zoe our fabulous teacher will guide you through and spend time  showing all the finer details of your Overlocker. Learn about threading them up ( everybody's worst nightmare ) the stitch settings, tension etc. This workshop has been so popular and proven invaluable to people starting out, and being introduced to the wonderful world of Overlockers. 

If you haven't bought a machine yet as are finding it too daunting then come and use ours in this workshop to help you make your decision.

This workshop is intended as a beginners guide and suitable for complete beginners with an Overlocker. You won't actually be making a garment in this workshop, just learning to use your machine. The next workshop available, Overlocking - Making a simple Garment is a perfect follow on to this one in which you can put your new found skills to use and make a simple garment. This Workshop is also available to book online.
