If overlockers confuse, alarm or even terrify you then you are not alone and it's time to face your Nemesis. In the first session of this class you will learn how to thread and use a 4 thread overlocker. You will learn about different stitches, their uses, thread tension, how to stitch curves, corners and seams. When you are brimming with confidence, wondering what all the fuss was about, in session two you will put all your newly acquired knowledge into sewing a professionally finished top to take away with you and you will wonder how you ever got along without an overlocker.
