Overlockers are so scary when you take them out of the box, but don’t panic! Help is at hand. My machine has sat in its box since I bought it as I was too overwhelmed but Jenni at Useful Sewing Box took all the mystery out of it immediately. I was sewing with confidence (and amazement at how useful it was!) within minutes. I came away from the lesson confident I could use my overlocker in the future, and more importantly confident I could go on a further learning journey with it. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this course to anyone who hasn’t had the confidence to unpack their overlocker.

I joined 3 other students for this Overlocker class. We were all nervous and each of us were having issues with our machine. Jenny’s cheerful reassurance put us at ease as she patiently encouraged each of us to thread and see a variety of finishes. I am absolutely delighted with the new skills I learned and the confidence I gained to use my machine to its full potential. Highly recommended!!!!!
