Welcome to Part 2 of our Overlocker workshop series.

Have you got an overlocker and want to get confident in using it in all your sewing projects then this part focuses on getting the best out of your overlocker.

Join Angie from the Geeky Seamstress to become friends with your overlocker and use it to its full potential. Angie started The Geeky Seamstress in 2020 while being furloughed from her full time job and together we help the customers of Royal Wootton Bassett with alterations and other sewing needs.

You will be spending 2 hours focusing on understanding how your overlocker works, moving the blade, rolled hems, changing needles and basic cleaning. We will have a go finishing seams on a few different fabrics too but most importantly practicing how to sew with it. 

(If you want to understand the threading see our part 1 workshop)
