About Coverstitch Machines
What started as a hobby, creating garments and gifts for family and friends, is now a small business. It is time to switch from constantly adjusting your serger to finishing garments with a cover stitch machine. These machines use three needles to create the cover stitch used for hemming and joining seams. To select the perfect machine from the wide variety of cover stitch machines available on eBay, consider your needs carefully, as features vary. Make sure the machine's bed space width easily accommodates your more common projects. Variable needle positions produce a range of stitches such as utility or decorative. Some cover stitch sewing machines include a chain stitch feature, which uses a single needle. Look for a presser with pressure adjustment capability to control the speed of fabric delivery through the machine. Consider accessories as well, such as specialty feet for gathering and cording. Max sewing speed differs greatly between models. If your needs moved far beyond a home sewing machine's capabilities, consider a cover stitch industrial sewing machine, which has a sewing speed five times that of a home model.
