About this course

This course will enable you to better understand your overlocker; why threading correctly is so important, understanding the various tensions, how each of the stitches works, sewing with or without the blade, using stretch fabrics, sizes and types of needles to use with each type of fabric, etc. The course will give you the confidence to use your machine more fully.
By the end of the course you will be able to -
Correctly thread your overlocker
Adjust the tensions for each thread
Sew and finish curved and straight seams

How will I be taught?

Craft courses provide an opportunity for students to learn and develop skills and techniques. Tutors will use a variety of teaching methods including demonstration, instructions, one-to-one tutorial guidance, group discussions and critiques.
