Worth paying extra for this model
Wednesday, 22 March 2017  |  Izabela

I love using this overlocker (I had it nearly 4 months now).

Not much adjustment is needed to the basic setup unless you are sewing very thick or super thin material.

I am just amazed how good it is, especially when I managed to sew a very thin chiffon silk using the picot edging with a cotton thread. (!)

I find it extremely easy to use and threading it is really easy due to the markings on the machine (the DVD scares you this is complicated, but actually it is not).

I am rally grateful for the great advice in the shop as if not got it I probably would go for a cheaper model and then end up regretting the purchase.

One negative I have to say (if this even could be a negative) it didn't came with a cleaning brush which I think is an essential as you need to clean the machine after each garment.

I love this overlocker and would wholeheartedly recommend it.

Our top tips

  • We found watching the YouTube tutorial helpful before attempting to make the kit 
  • Added kiss cut on the PVC panel makes it easy to measure your fabric out 
  • Tucking the fabric under the rings to finish it off is a little fiddly, making sure you have trimmed all your frayed edges first helps 
  • Mark out on the fabric where the PVC will go to make sure that it is straight when you stick it down 
  • Light to medium weight fabrics work best, do not use heavier fabric as it doesn't stick to the PVC very well 
  • Make sure you iron your fabric well before sticking the PVC backing to it

 

Light fitting

The lampshade frame included in your kit will fit the standard bayonet cap (BC) lamp holder. This is the most common type of lamp fitting in the UK today. It can also be used with Edison Screw (E27) lamp holders, most common in Europe, simply remove the converter plug in the centre of the fitting

We recommend the use of low energy bulbs with your lampshades. They use less energy and are cool to the touch, avoiding the problem of scorching shades and ceilings.

 

The lampshade materials have been tested and passed the glow wire test carried out by the Lighting Association.

This is a great product, really easy to use and a fantastic end result. It is so hard to find interesting lampshades that aren't beige and now you can have exactly what you like!

I found this kit simple to make and the instructions are easy to follow. Not a lot of effort for a really great looking professional lampshade Tucking the fabric under the rings is the only fiddly bit but fine when you get used to it, trim the frayed edges.

Would highly recommend and think Iím going to get another one!
