WHO IS THIS CLASS FOR?
This class is suitable for anyone looking to gain confidence sewing with an overlocker. You do not need to have ever used an overlocker before.
There is nothing more fulfilling than stitching clothes for yourself. You get to choose everything from style to fit and from colours to materials. The end result is completely unique and it is YOU who made it! Barbara is a sewist at heart and believes that anyone can learn how to sew. She started her sewing business RockingStitch 7 years ago with the aim to show as many people as possible that sewing machines aren’t scary and to just give it a go! She is a teacher, content creator, YouTuber, blogger, and the designer of the Seamstress Gauge.
Hannah's dog Twigs might be in the office, please let us know if you'd rather she wasn't and we will find a dog sitter!
