Tuesday 4th July 18:30 - 21:100 - Textile night!

Come and see what an overlocker sewing machine can do - and go home with a drawstring bag you have made yourself.

Using an overlocker is a great addition to your sewing skills - and it is really fun to use. People can be a little put off by them because they seem so different to a “normal” sewing machine so come along and find out what it can do for you.

This event is open to everyone - non-members included - but please use the wiki function to add your name below and let me know you are coming so I can make sure I have enough materials and so we don’t get overcrowded.
(For those who have never used the wiki function - you will see pencil icon on the post which will allow you to edit it - when in edit mode add your name (or preferably your discourse username) to the list below. Then save it)

Thanks for organising this Tracy! Are there any materials we need to bring?

Hi @Sean. No, all materials will be provided. See you next week.

Thanks Tracy! I’m looking forward to it :slight_smile:

Damn it - me and @tw1sted1981 are busy that night. Fingers crossed it’s so popular a night you do it all again another time!

Hi :wave: is there still space to sign up to this or am I too late? I am happy to just watch and learn if that’s not creepy :sweat_smile:

Thank you,

Hi everyone - There was only 10 spaces available for this event tomorrow - that’s why the post only originally had the 10 spaces and numbers. I’m afraid there’s just not the space for more. It’s been popular though so I will run another duplicate event in a couple of weeks.
@futureshape - sorry but I am going to have to bump you to the next night unless somebody else drops out.

Oops - no worries, I’m coming into the space anyway to do a 3D print, if there’s no space for me I don’t need to take part, but if there’s a drop out I can jump in and fill in the space.


Perfect - there’s usually someone who can’t make it on the night. Thanks for understanding.

@futureshape I’ve had to drop out, turns out my son is inconsiderately having a birthday on that day, so I will be celebrating that. I’ve moved you up the list.


I am sorry I cannot make it tonight unfortunately :(.

No problem Chris. Keep an eye out as I will do another session if you still want to take part.

@Anyone - there is a place now free if anyone would like to join.
