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

"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!"
