Coverstitch machine

I have a Janome Coverpro 1000. I bought it online rather than at my local dealer and never learned to use it.
It got packed away when we moved house and I have never used it on a garment.
I think it is time that changed so I am going to thread it in white and try to coverstitch the hems on the 'Newspaper' collection knit tops with it as I make them.

I shall look forward to hearing how you get on with the "new" machine. It takes a bit of practice but the coverstitching looks great on the garments.

I've really made use of my coverstitch machine. I also like using it for double topstitching on wovens.

I have one of those machines, too, Ruthie. Just a tip ... make sure you have the tright needles for a coverstitch machine or it will skip stitches. I am not sure what they are called in Britain but here they are Schmetz System ELx 705 CF.

Let me know how it goes, Ruthie, I am unsure as to whether I need one of these terrible beasties or not.
