Baby Lock Cover Stitch
Baby Lock Cover Stitch
The baby lock cover stitch machine is ideal for sewing high-quality seams.
Its 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.
The ingenious jet-air system makes threading your baby lock cover stitch child's play. From now on, you are the one who defines the threading order. You no longer need to follow any coloured threading points or start again from the beginning because of a threading error. Forget about loose threads that may cause tangles and confusion. Simply choose the desired looper thread, insert it into the threading port, push the lever and the yarn will be threaded up to the tip of the looper as if by magic. The jet-air system of your baby lock cover stitch is simply ingenious!
Adjusting the thread tension is always a bit fiddly. Especially if the stitches you have just produced do not look the way they should. The baby lock cover stitch has separate looper thread and needle thread tension dials that are clearly arranged to allow an easy adjustment of the tension for the correct thread. Don't be afraid of setting the thread tension to your respective needs. All tension dials are colour marked and help you manage this task.
An easy-to-reach dial lets you adjust the stitch length without any problems whenever necessary. Use the coverstitch to produce a hem or decorative seam. No matter which stitch length you choose, your baby lock will always come up with that perfect look!
Thanks to its differential feed, the cover stitch guarantees an optimum feed of stretch fabrics and thus prevents puckering or protruding seams. However, you can also use the cover stitch's differential feed to intentionally gather or stretch the fabric and produce fanciful decorative effects.
