Learn to Love your Over Locker
A full day workshop.
This course is aimed at those of you who can already sew using a sewing machine but want to increase your skills by using an over-locker to create a more professional finish to your projects.
During this workshop you will get to know your over-locker and banish any fears you may have about using it.
The first part of the day we will cover the basics of starting to use an over-locker including familiarising yourself with the different parts, threading, stitch selection, cutting blade and finishing off.
Included in the day we will use the skills learned to make a simple skirt from jersey fabric sewn entirely on your over-locker.
Equipment to bring:
Your own over-locker with thread (please note we do not have any over lockers you can use. You will need to bring your own)
Essential to bring your over-locker manual (there are differences to each over-locker so the manual will help you understand your individual machine)
Jersey fabric 2 or 4 way stretch
A sewing kit if you have one
Jersey Fabric enough as per the length of skirt you would like (available to purchase from Make with a 15% discount off when attending a workshop) Please note that jersey fabric especially is prone to a certain amount of shrinkage during washing so please wash your fabric prior to the workshop.
Anyone who is under 150 cm around will need 1 m and then whatever length they would like to make the skirt. Short is 46 cm, med is 61 cm and long is as long as you
For larger than 150 cm around bring enough fabric to go around yourself which will then allow enough for the length. If you need advice on this please do get in touch,
