There is a new baby in the house:
That's her! The Janome Cover Pro 1000CP. This is a cover stitch machine. Cover stitches are commonly used on t-shirt hems on ready-to-wear clothing as well as many other uses. The cover stitch looks like a straight stitch from the front, but stretches like a serged stitch on the inside. I have been wanting one of these for years and finally decided to take the plunge. A cover stitch machine works a little differently than a sewing machine - it's probably closer to a serger, but it does require some modification when using. Luckily the
helpful folks who provide reviews over at SewingPatternreview.com have a wealth of information on this machine as well as many others. Check them out the next time you need sewing info on just about anything.
Meanwhile, I decided to whip up some t-shirts for my daughter and test out the cover pro. Just a few...
She should be set for awhile. Now I will move onto the rest of the family. Check out the hems ~ looking good!
I think I'm gonna like this new machine.
