Check list

This workshop is an ideal way to gain confidence before progressing to the garment assembly course.

Please ensure that your overlocker is in good working order and that you are familiar with the basic operating instructions, as the course is quite intensive and there is insufficient time to deal with mechanical problems.

You will need your manual, tweezers and roll hem attachments, if applicable. All materials and threads are included in the price.
