Overlocker & Cover Stitch Classes

Overlockers are great to have as part of your sewing room, they enable you to complete your garments with a professional finish. The Basic Overlocker Course is all about gaining an understanding of how the machine works, how to thread and when to amend your tensions. An overlocker also makes sewing with stretch fabric so much easier! So come and learn how to achieve the most from your overlocker.

Cover stitch machines take sewing with knits up to a different level. You will get professional looking hems and the benefit of stretchability and finishing the raw edge of your hem in one go.
