Janome CoverPro 1000
CPX can be used for 2 or 3 thread stitching. The cover stitches look professional, just like a shirt you would buy off the rack. I love to use a contrasting thread like the awesome
NEON yellow serger threads
we have in stock from Maxi Lock to give my garment a cooler look.
You can use Nylon Stretch thread (also called Wooly Nylon) in your loopers (both in the CoverPro and/or your serger) for a SOFT wooly feel next to your skin. This is particularly nice when making clothing for a baby or small child!
You can achieve a similar look on your garments without a coverstitch sewing machine using a twin needle! Although it’s faster using a Janome Coverstitch machine, most machines have an extra attachment on the top to use two spools of thread and you wind the Nylon Stretch thread onto your bobbin if you want it to be extra soft next to your skin. Amy did a post on how to use a twin needle for our blog a few years back.
