I am still looking for a serger and was wondering if finding one with coverstitch capabilities is worth the (more than double) investment. I’ve only used a serger a few times, so I don’t understand much about them. From what I can gather from online research, switching the machine from overlock to coverstitch can be time consuming and therefore most people opt for seperate machines.
I mostly sew garments, including knits. Will the overlock machine alone hem knits? Is there any other function of the coverstitch?
Also, if there is anything I should be looking out for in an overlock machine, I would appreciate the advice! I’ve mostly narrowed it down to a Janome, Pfaff, Bernina or Singer (due to availability) and will chose an appropriate model based on function and price.
