Are you interested in starting your sewing journey? Learn the fundamentals of using your overlocker or serger at this beginner-friendly class with Sydney Creative.

Bring along your own overlocker or serger or use one of ours if you don't have one yet.

Most people are daunted by the thought of threading an overlocker, if you're one of those people, you are not alone. We have developed this class to help you gain confidence using the overlocker, understand how to thread it, and when to use different types of stitches.

In this class, we will cover the following functions and stitches:

  • Understanding the stitch length dial
  • Understanding the differential feed dial
  • Understanding the four tension dials
  • How to balance your threads using the tension dials
  • How to use the overlocker blade correctly
  • Adjusting the blade position
  • Lowering the blade
  • Threading the lower looper
  • Threading the upper looper
  • Threading the two needles
  • Sewing a 4 Thread Overlocking stitch
  • Sewing a 3 Thread Overlocking stitch
  • Sewing a narrow hem
  • Sewing a rolled hem

We will work on making a simple overlocked cushion cover in the class so that you have something to take home with you at the end.

Our sewing teachers are all exceptionally skilled and will be happy to share their knowledge, tips and tricks with you.

Unfortunately our venue is not wheelchair accessible due to two steps leading into the venue

Our story began in 2018 in a small Redfern studio. With only one desk and one sewing machine, our first class was published and we haven't looked back. Our passion for the arts coupled with bringing people together, brought our vision of launching a creative hub to life.

In our modern world, everything moves quickly, we have adapted to a fast-paced environment and sometimes it can be hard to slow ourselves down. Sydney Creative is a place for people to relax, regroup and find a creative outlet that will hopefully aid in bringing people a sense of achievement, fulfilment and joy.

Today, our classes run from our own venue in Redfern. We run lots of different creative classes from Sewing to Jewellery, painting and lots more, we love following the trends and developing new classes for our customers to enjoy.
