Baby Lock Coverstitch machines are usually used for hems on stretchy materials. However, they are also a good choice when it comes to trimmings, assembly seams and decorative stitches, irrespective of whether the material is a stretchy or not. babylock coverstitch machines will impress you with their high quality, easy handling and numerous special features.
The pro among the coverstitch machines. Enormous penetration force and high precision stitches, even with cross seams. Have you ever taken a closer look at the hems of your t-shirts or sweatshirts? The top of the hem usually looks like a twin-needle stitch whereas the underside of the hem resembles a zig-zag stitch. This is a coverstitch. Compared to a twin-needle stitch and zig-zag stitch produced on a sewing machine, the cover stitch is much more elastic and durable.
The baby lock cover stitch specialises in this type of stitch. The simple and ingenious jet-air threading system makes threading your baby lock cover stitch child’s play. Its strong point is its penetration force and high precision stitches, irrespective of whether the material is firm or stretchy, even for cross seams. No problem for the baby lock cover stitch. The drop feed system is another highlight of the baby lock cover stitch. The feed dog is lowered automatically whenever you raise the presser foot. This makes placing and removing the fabric much easier. The feed system of the cover stitch is similar to those used in industry. Say goodbye to frustrating unwanted puckering or wavy seams with knitwear or very fine fabrics. The adjustable differential feed (0.6 ? 2.0:1) of your baby lock cover stitch gives every stitch that perfect look.
