Course Summary

An overlocker, or serger, is a versatile sewing aid that can intimidate even confident sewers. The sewing course gives an introduction to overlocker techniques and is designed to give students the confidence to use their machine to its full potential. During these fashion design workshops, students work on a number of samples that they join to make a cover for their overlocker. The cover is a reminder of what can be achieved and is a practical sample for your sewing room.
