Hi everyone!  I know we talked a little before about what a Coverstitch machine does before:

You will be sewing professional looking hems in no time! :)

 

BIG THANKS to Jennifer for taking the time to make a great video all about this awesome coverpro machine!

Ever wonder what a CoverPro (or a cover stitch) machine does?  This little beauty makes amazing professional looking hems!   When you look at the bottom of most knit shirts (you may be wearing one now) you will see 2 or three lines of straight stitching on the top and some crazy loops on the other side.

This allows your hem to stretch with the fabric without breaking.  It gives a really nice clean look to the hem and stops the other side from fraying.

Janome CoverPro machines!

The Janome CoverPro 1000CPX 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.
