I get a lot of questions regarding coverstitch machines; if they are worth investing in, how to use them, why they are so fickle and which models are the best buys. In this video I talk about how the coverstitch machine works, why they are essential if you are sewing stretchy knits, which types of machines there are to choose from and what you need to consider before you fork up money for a machine that can basically only do one stitch (but what a stitch!).
As for the extensive coverstitch machine buying and troubleshooting post I refer to in the video, it’s this The Ultimate Guide To Coverstitching
Here is my review of the Janome CoverPro that I show in the video.
And the combination machine in the video is a Pfaff Coverstyle that is no longer sold, but I know that Pfaff has a several other combination models.
If you have any questions regarding using and buying a coverstitch machine, just ask me in the comment section and I do my best to answer it!
