Get confident, skilled & quick at overlocking! Suitable for you if you've never sat in front of an overlocker or have had a go & want to improve.
"I had a wonderful lesson on how to use an overlocker, which covered everything I needed to make a decision on what machine I should buy, and what I could do with it. The teacher certainly knew how to get the best out of the machine, and by the end of the day I felt confident I could thread the machine myself and deal with any minor faults." Rachel Jones reviewed Sew In Brighton sewing school – 5 star (more reviews below or on our fb reviews section)
Focus on set up, threading up & adjusting tension / differential feed for different fabrics & techniques.
You'll learn the easiest way to neaten professional looking seams (much quicker than domestic sewing machine zigzagging), including corners and curves. And bring along fabrics you'd love to know how to overlock - including jersey or fine fabrics

I thoroughly enjoyed the course, found it pertinent and thoughtfully delivered. Your tutor was entirely focused on us and added all kinds of helpful tips which can only come from in depth experience. Your earlier comments about the Singer overlocker were all too accurate as mine displayed one insurmountable problem in that it could not stitch in a straight line! I returned it for a full refund and have ordered a Brother 1034D as you advised. Can't wait for it to arrive. I will practice and hopefully consolidate on the course teachings and am sure I will soon be booking another course with you. Thank you again.

Excellent overlocker class. I feel really confident now about using the overlocker I bought 5 years ago and have barely touched! Some really useful tips and a very good introduction to using it. Really enjoyed the practical sessions and the very comprehensive theory overview.

I did an overlocker course yesterday and LOVED it!!! I feel like I learned a bunch and am so much more confident with the "beast" machine! It was great to be able to learn on my own machine and get the settings just perfect. I also learned 2 new stitches! Yay! Can't wait to go back!
