    Overlockers - advice please! 10th Oct 06 at 10:06 PM
    Hi, I am considering getting a second hand overlocker to recycle old clothes and possibly make up some new ones, but I'm not quite sure what the different models do, ie 3 spool or 4 spool etc. Does anyone know, or know of a good website that could explain.

    Also, what makes are good in your opinion? I notice that Sewland seem to be the cheapest on ebay, are they rubbish or acceptable for a beginner?

    I have owned and used a sewing machine for years, so am very confident with that, just have no real idea about overlockers.

    Any advice greatfully accepted!
