10sep11:00 am1:30 pmGet to know your overlockerBuild confidence in setting up and using your own overlocker with Barley Massey

Event Details

We have introduced a “Get to know your overlocker” class as we are aware it can be daunting setting up and using an overlocker for the first time. We have purposefully kept the price low as you will be bringing along your own overlocker. We can also offer 2 slots for those of you that are yet to own or use an overlocker! (Fabrications is also an authorised ‘Brother’ dealer if you are considering purchasing an overlocker)

Through this introductory class, participants will learn the basics of setting up and using an overlocker, some tips and tricks as well as developing the confidence to progress onto making things using an overlocker.

On completion of this class participants will confidently be able to:

– Thread up (simplified)

– Change thread colours without a complete re-thread

– Get an even feed through on your fabric and tackling curves confidently

– Work with 3 or 4 threads, understanding when each option applies

– Play with cutting widths

– Aquire practical tips such as changing needles, using the cone holders, tweazers, removing the blades and other accompanying accessories

– Understand tension and troubleshoot

– Create a rolled hem

– Use fun alternatives and discover more than just creating neat edges!

– Maintenance advice

– Receive tailored advice for your own personal projects
