Learn the basics of using industrial sewing machines!

The overlock, high-speed, and leather sewing machines allow you to quickly and easily work with a wide variety of fabrics. Regardless of whether you’re working with – thick or thin materials, leather, felt or denim – these are the machines for the job! 

In this Safety and Basic Functions Course (SBFC), you will learn how to use the sewing machines listed above, as well as the pressing station. You will sew a cooking apron as part of the course, which will familiarise you with many of the major steps required to create your own designs.
