Minimum age 16


Does your Coverstitch scare the living daylights out of you. Maybe it’s still sitting in the box. It probably is still sitting in the box! And it’s no secret these are highly temperamental machines and cause hours of frustration.


This class will help demystify all those quirks a Coverstitch has, the difference between chainstitch, 2 Thread wide & narrow stitch, 3 Thread, and reverse Coverstitch.


Let’s work out why those stitches sometimes skip, and how to chain off so those stitches don’t unravel. Let’s just play around and get to know your machine a little bit better and learn to love it a lot more.



And I want you to love yours too!
