NB- This class doesn’t include use of overlockers. If you’d like to use an overlocker, please give me 48 notice, and bring along threads if you don’t want to use black or white. You will need to be able to thread up and use an overlocker as there isn’t time in this class to teach how to use one.
I'm so glad I had you on hand for my first attempt with lighter weight jersey, good fun and I learnt loads! I have my twin needles now and I'm going to set a weekend aside very soon and try out more jersey fabric.
