A(nother) new addition! A Janome Coverstitcher

Bev made me do it. That’s my excuse and I am sticking to it!

My little sanctuary

My little sanctuary

Having left my own little sanctuary in Penzance last Saturday I was feeling a bit sorry for myself. I had admired these coverstitch machines from afar and swapped  comments with Bev who was using her own Janome to very good effect. There was a little surplus in the coffers after all the work done recently so I decided to treat myself to it! Hurrah!

The machine arrived this afternoon and I have spent about half an hour after finishing client work testing it out. Well, fiddling to be precise. I think this may take a bit more getting used to than I had hoped but with the benefit of the overlocker course on the Craftsy site, which includes a little about coverstitch machines, I think I will get to grips with it. (Look out for desperate e-mails Bev!)

Repeat this now I can coverstitch?

Too good not to have more than one

I have some client work that I must finish during tomorrow and Friday but I think this weekend may turn into a ‘busmans  holiday’ and I will repeat the wonderful Burda top from February 2013. I loved the original version I made in black and will shop the stash to find another fabric to try it using just the overlocker and coverstitcher.

Hopefully I will have something to show you by Sunday!

    What are the benefits of a Coverstitch please? (As opposed to having an overlocker + standard lockstitch machine.)
