Event description
Learn how to thread, understand tension, use and maintain your overlocker sewing machine!

About this event

An overlocker is a type of sewing machine that uses multiple threads to seam fabric while also overcasting to cover raw edges. It is a beautiful (and very useful) piece of equipment, but they are a bit more complicated to use than regular sewing machines.

If you are thinking about getting an overlocker or you already have one but you don't feel confident enough to use it, then our Overlocker Workshop is exactly what you need!

This 3 hours workshop is designed to walk you through the basics, build your confidence and teach you what you need to know to use this machine to its full potential.

We will cover:

- what parts the machine has and how they work

-how to thread your machine, and adjust the thread tension

-looking at the different types of seams and finishing techniques

-practice how to sew straight lines, curves, and turn corners

-make a little craft project to gain experience measuring, cutting and sewing fabric

-how to maintain your machine, and prevent costly service charges

All equipment and some materials will be provided but you are welcome to bring along your own machine if you wish to.

To keeps the class focused on everyone’s personal needs, we are only taking on 3 students per workshop. Covid-19 protection measures are in place to safeguard the health and wellbeing of staff members and participants. If you have any questions or concerns please don't hesitate to contact us.

Please note that the course will go ahead only if we received a minimum of 2 bookings, in case we need to cancel the class you will get reimbursed. If you are interested but you need more information about it, or the timing is not ideal for you, feel free to contact us at monika@remodecollective.com
