Our recorded classes will guide you through every step
So many people find overlockers intimidating, they are mechanical, noisy and have a lot of knobs and buttons. But with our video workshops you will soon be best friends with your overlocker. We can't wait to share our tips and tricks with you. Sarah and Freya have been sewing with an overlocker for over 15 years and we have so many things we're looking forward to sharing with you!
This three-workshop bundle provides the perfect combination of theory and practice, through fun, simple projects to put the skills you've learned in to practice. As well as 3 step by step video courses, you'll get 5 invaluable downloads to support your learning.
You can also use this course alongside our Learn to Love your Overlocker eBook - a project and resource packed course handbook to support your learning throughout the course and beyond.

I must admit I did dither over whether to go on this course or not as it is more expensive than any other course I have done before. However, I cannot emphasize enough how pleased I am that I did!!! It was a huge benefit to me to be both recorded sessions and some lives as I don't live locally and simply would not have been able to do it in person.
This course was fantastic. I had made jersey clothes on the overlocker before but didn’t really understand how to use my overlocker fully. I now know how to change the settings for different fabrics and have so much more confidence when it comes to using the machine and problem solving.
Brilliant insight into what can be done on an overlocker with great tips such as quick thread changes, finishing off and securing chains and what threads are best
This course is for you if you want to build your confidence and skills using your overlocker. It's definitely for you if you haven't opened the box your overlocker came in, and it's for you if you haven't got to grips with threading or changing the settings.
This course will take away all those fears and worries about using your overlocker and enable you to sew everything you've ever wanted on your machine.
To get the most out of the course you will want to sew along with us as we demonstrate techniques and work with you to the sew garments. You could join without an overlocker but the course is very practical and you won't be able to enjoy it fully.
The live content will be hosted through Zoom and on Facebook, and the recorded content will be available through our website. All PDF content will be sent to you via email though our website. This can be printed off at home or used digitally.
The clothing patterns are designed for women, in UK Sizes 10-26.
If you find you need additional support during your course you can book a 1-2-1 session with the tutors for £30 for one hour sessions. These are available through the whole year you have access to the course materials.
"I’ve taught hundreds of people to understand and fully use their overlocker, but when I first started out, I was rather scared of the machine and nervous that I could mess it up. Now I understand how the machine creates the stitches I am in control and I am confident about using every function. I can even show you simply and easily how it works too!"
