Meet Gail and get started with an overview of coverstitching. Gail shows you basic stitching, then goes over the features and benefits of a dedicated coverstitch machine and those of a combo serger/coverstitch machine.
Find out how to coverstitch perfect hems, whether you're sewing on flat fabric or in the round, and how to hem smoothly over a bulky seam.
Follow along as Gail introduces you to a triple-stitch variation that's perfect for a decorative zipper insertion.
See how to make beautiful faux flat-fell seams and lapped seams using a wide coverstitch variation.
Practice using a narrow coverstitch as you flawlessly hem an unbound neckline for casual or dressy garments.
Wrap things up by learning to use some exciting stitch accessories: decorative and blending threads, and the belt loop binder and downturn feller attachments.
