Overlocker Classes

Overlocker Classes

Hands up if you’re scared of your overlocker? Or if it ran out of thread and now you’re pretending it doesn’t exist so you don’t have to rethread it? Well we’ve got your back!

Upcoming Dundee Classes


Our overlocker classes do require a bit of prior experience which is why they are a Level 2 class, but you don’t have to be a sewing expert to try your hand at one of these overlocker classes!

The overlocker has been terrifying sew-ers for years and that’s because they have 4 threads instead of two…and they look a wee bit scary, we totally get it! But once you’ve had a shot of one you will wonder what all the fuss was about!

It’s great for quick makes! Only have a short afternoon to sew and what to actually get something finished? The overlocker is your quick make mate!

In our 3.5 hour overlocker for beginners class you will learn how to thread the machine from scratch, how to change the threads without de-threading and then we will go over how to use the machine to make yourself something – either a slouchy tee or a stretch pattern of your choice(you’ll get it started but maybe not finished depending on the pattern!). Please come to class with you pattern cut out and ready to go. We’ll email you more info about this upon booking!

Please note that as we allow people to bring their own overlockers to this class we cannot go over more advanced stitches on individual overlockers. You can however book in for a 1-2-1 to learn more about your own overlocker. Just get in touch for more info –!

Top 3 Overlocker Class FAQs

You can indeed! As long as it’s in working order, you have the accessory box and the manual you can bring it!

We always suggest you hold off buying an overlocker until you’d been on the class. There are a lot of difficult to use machine out there and you tutor can talk you through the features you want to look out for. We also sell the machines you use in class so if you want to buy from us you can.

As long as you have a bit of experience on a normal sewing machine, either our beginners class or a few projects under your belt you will be fine. If you have any doubts and want to chat it through please get in touch!
