Even more overlocker samples

I spent a day at a workshop learning all about the different feet available for my overlocker.  As some of those feet cost about 20 pounds a pop it was worth playing around with somebody else’s before coming up with my wish list. I had a good day picking up tips, learning news tricks with overlocker and getting to play with some feet. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to really play with ones suitable for the coverstitch capability that my overlocker had.

    Impressively neat sample labelling – is that a hangover from the City & Guilds?

    Kinda – Jan the workshop leader encouraged us to record our settings for getting the particular effect. It was especially important for those whose overlockers don't have automatic tensioning. After reading books which devote chapters to fiddling with tension I am very glad that the machine I got has auto tensioning (as well as jet air threading)
