About This Course
An overlock stitch is what you'll find on the inside of almost any piece of regular hi-street clothing. It's the ubiquitous stitch for quick and neat seaming, hemming, or edging. An Overlocker (also known as a 'Serger' in North America) is a machine dedicated to this purpose, and it comes in particularly handy when sewing with knitted fabrics, such as jersey.
In this course, led by expert Patricia Collins, we'll be helping you to get your head around this rather odd looking machine. Techniques will include the different overlocking stitches; curves & corners; and additional functions such as rolled hems. We will also be giving you a quick intro to our Coverlocker machine.
