I literally came with my overlocker in an unopened box. I have never touched an overlocker before yet I walked away confident in threading it and excited to use it! Thanks Jenny.

Great overlocker intro class. Instructor is very expetienced and had to deal with 5 different brands and models. I am no longer scared of my machins and feel confident to move past only using 1 setting. Many thanks

Really enjoyed the intro to overlocking course with Jenny. My overlocker had been languishing in its box but now I can put it to use.
