Sew Into Overlocking

Learn to Love your Overlocker - Coverstitch


Join us for a full day workshop with Kate Marra from Sew Into Overlocking. Sew Much More Than Just a Hem will teach you how to confidently use your coverstitch machine or the coverstitch side of your combination machine. 

The workshop will look at coverstitching essentials, such as: 

  • Finishing a hem in the round
  • Reverse coverstitch 
  • Differential feed
  • Decorative coverstitch
  • Chain stitch 

The workshop includes an afternoon of self-guided learning where you can have individual questions answered, seek advice, or work with accessories such as binders and folders. This time can also be used to explore fabric making and produce a scarf or piece of fabric using smaller individual pieces. 

The workshop will run all day from 10am - 3:30pm, with a half hour break for lunch. A take-home workbook and light morning and afternoon tea is included in the cost of the workshop. All fabrics needed to complete the workbook will be provided.
