I love it when a machine adoption is successful…… Hi Maeri, Just a quick email to say thanks for the workshop the other night. I had a really fantastic time and it was a perfect introduction to sewing, especially helped that I got to practice on my brand...
I have posted here before about sewing machines that I have been given that I offer back to any one that wants them for free. They are normally older and what I would like to describe as "vintage" (hoping that vintage sounds better than old!). I think...
Sometimes, scrolling the webpages for more information on workshops you might be interested in just doesn’t quite cut the mustard (as they say). So a complete printable (it is in PDF format) listing of workshops seems to be the best answer ! Our latest...

Our Overlockers for Beginners workshop can make all the difference to your finished sewing - no more raggy hems and your finish looks like it was made by
Our Overlockers for Beginners workshop can make all the difference to your finished sewing – no more raggy hems and your finish looks like it was made by a high street shop. But what if you have never sewn on one before and are not sure if it will make that much difference for the sewing that you do and the additional cost of purchasing one? Or what if you have one but do not know how to use it properly or keep finding that the same old problems when sewing keep you from using it to its full potential? Or what if people keep telling you that you need one and you have no clue what it is!
Our Beginners Guide to Overlockers is for those that do not own an overlocker but want to have a go on one or have one but need guidance on how to get the most out of it and how to overcome the main problems that occur when using one.
You will receive approximately two hours demonstration in the Studio’s relaxed environment, including a question and answer section, on how to use our four spool serger, a Toyota SL1A or any overlockers brought by attendees. This is a chance to see what an overlocker does and also answer questions on what using it requires. We also discuss what overlockers we would recommend for purchasing if you are considering buying one.
After this session, you have two options:
If you have a machine, we will work with you to set it up and use it if possible.
If you do not have a machine, you can have a try using our overlocker, asking any questions needed to help you fully understand and feel comfortable with using an overlocker.
We also have a handout created by our sewing machine technician, which covers the main problems that occur when using an overlocker and more importantly, how to fix them!
