How to get the correct overlocker tension is the most common issue when using these machines. An overlocker is a fantastic machine and can be extremely useful. But they can also be beastly. Read on to find out how to use them and get the most from an overlocker.
I recently bought a Singer Overlocker 14SH754 so I here’s a review. If you want to sew jersey fabric, then you can’t beat an overlocker. I’ve been an overlocker user for over 30 years, (25 of those have been using my faithful old Pfaff). Overlockers used to cost around £400 for the most basic models, with more advanced, robust machines costing £500-£2000. Therefore I was sceptical when I got a tip-off (thanks, Ann!) that Lidl would be selling the Singer Overlocker 14SH754 for £129. I immediately did as I usually do to check out gadgets and looked up prices and reviews online.
