Overlocker Lesson - 03 Apr 2017 3:00 PM

I had a 2 hour one-on-one session with Laura to learn more about my overlocker. It was SO valuable. I went home very excited about sewing using my overlocker and getting it to work for me because I now know exactly what the settings are for and have more confidence to change them to get the best finish. Laura was able to answer my specific questions as well as show me how to get the most out of my manual for future trouble shooting. Having the one-on-one session was also great as I was able to learn what I wanted to know and go at my own pace. Thank you Laura for sharing your knowledge and skills in such a wonderful way!
