    Thank you Johanna. That was a wonderful and very informative video on the CoverHem Machine. I’ve had one for many years and it frustrated me for a while. I realized quite quickly that I really needed to use it and do some practice garments to master the cover stitch – I’m still working on that “mastering”. You have inspired me to make more use of my Cover Hem and I’m very pleased with my Janome Cover Hem Machine.
