In this detailed overlocker sewing course, we cover every detail of owning and using an overlocker. Starting with an in-depth look at the overlocker anatomy and the accessories kit; we’ll talk you through every button, dial and lever so that you know where everything is and what it does.
We’ll hold your hand as we take you through threading, explaining how the overlocker works as we go. We’ll go through some basic exercises to get you confident stitching all kinds of shapes such as corners, curves and enclosed seams. We’ll even explain how to analyse your stitching in detail so that you can check for errors.
We’ll share lots of the tips and tricks that we’ve picked up along the way including what threads to use, how to pin, how to finish off your tails and even how to efficiently unpick your seams.
Already been using an overlocker for some time?
As a next stage, or for those of you who have already been using an overlocker for a while, we take a much more in-depth look at tension. We’ll teach you to identify bad looper or needle tension and how to rectify it. We’ll explain how the cutting width and differential feed can help you get the perfect stitch for every kind of fabric. Then we’ll go through many other kinds of troubleshooting including ragged edges, skipped stitches and breaking threads or needles.
Once you’ve got the basics down, we’ll show you how to reduce the number of threads on your overlocker to 3 or even 2, to create 10 different stitches including rolled hems, picot edges and flatlock stitches. Plus, we’ll show you a number of additional feet and attachments that you can get for your overlocker for help with tasks including gathering, elastic attachment and hemming.
Finally, we’ll show you how to give your overlocker a spa day covering cleaning, oiling, replacing cutters and needles and much more. This is the only overlocker sewing course you will ever need!
