What to do with a coverlock machine
I have a Bernina coverlock machine. I’ve had it about 5 years and all I’ve done is the hems on a fleece dressing gown using coverlock stitch, and a beanbag using chain stitch.
It seemed to work OK after I got through the nightmare of threading it, but it was such a cumbersome beast (i.e. sewing with it, not the size of the machine), that I really don’t feel like getting it out of the box again.
What have others found using coverlock machines? I hated my overlocker for a while but love it now. Should I presevere and try to do fiddly things on it (like the swimming costumes I like to make), leave it strictly for bog standard T-shirt hems or get rid of it?
