By which of course I mean “Should I buy a coverlock machine?”
With Christmas coming up I have been wondering that for a little while. I do like to sew knits and have had limited success with my twin needle efforts. I often zig-zag knit seams and most of the time that looks okay – but not great – so what do you think? Should I flash my eye lashes at Santa re a coverlock machine?
I’m under no illusion that it might pay its way, after all I sew only for myself so a new sewing machine for basically one single applications is always going to be an indulgence.
Do any of you have a coverlock machine? Are you deliriously happy with it, or in the depths of despair? Any advice on make and model? Or should I just live with sometimes slightly wavy seams and be done with it? How do you cope with wavy seam syndrome if you don’t have a coverlock machine?
As always: any advice is eagerly received and greatly appreciated!
