Learning to Love Your Overlocker

This workshop is booked out with a waiting list. If you are interested please get in touch so we can keep you posted. If you aren’t already sign up to our email list to hear about upcoming events first.

Interested in gaining more confidence with an overlocker?

We are excited to have Kate Marra from Sew Into Overlocking back again this year.

This one-day course gives students a greater understanding of their overlocker and allows them to continue using it at home confidently. The kit provided includes a comprehensive 23-page workbook and all fabrics required for the day.

The course covers four-thread and three-thread overlocking, tensions, differential feed, techniques for better results when stitching a circle, inside and outside corners, working with difficult fabrics and so many applications for rolled hem!

The cost for the day is $130, inclusive of $30 for the kit.

We have set a date of Saturday 2 September 2023 from 10 am to 3:30pm (pencil this into your dairies!) We are seeking expressions of interest now, and will confirm bookings and take payment in early August. (No money is required or taken now.) Full requirements list provided when booking confirmed.

One requirement worth knowing well in advance:

Students require their own overlocker—in good working order (having your machine serviced before class is advisable to avoid disappointment; if it’s not working properly you will not get the most out of the class.)

This workshop (as well as the additional October workshop) is booked out. If you interested do still get in touch. If demand continues to exceed places we will attempt to schedule another workshop either later in the year or early next year.

Only 8 places per session. If you are interested you can let us know by emailing fabric@houseofcloth.com.au, phone or in store.
