I've been sewing more knits lately and I'd like to improve my finishing. I'm trying to decide if I want to take the plunge and buy a dedicated coverstitch machine.
So - talk to me. Do you think it's worth it? Has it improved your sewing? Do your knits look more like Ready to Wear? And do you use it?
The one thing I don't want to do is purchase a new machine and not use it.
One of the things that concerns me is that I have a serger that will do a coverstitch and I rarely convert it and use the coverstitch. Mostly because when I want to use it - I'm constructing a garment using the serger and need to coverstitch between serging a seam.
For those of you who don't know what the coverstitch is or does - it's the seam you see hemming 90% of all commercial knits. Here is a good example of what the coverstitch is, does and uses.
So - talk to me, please.
