Make the steps of your work easier with an overlock
The name coverlock is fairly self-explanatory. It means placing a cover stitch on the seam. In this special type of sewing machine the hook combines the lower thread with two to three needle threads of the upper threads. The choice of needle results in a wide or narrow cover seam or chain stitch seam. A cover cannot sew backwards.
Later, pull the threads into the cover seam using a darning needle and sew them. All coverlock machines have two to three needles and a lower hook, meaning you can use different types of seam.
Cover means that this machine has no knife and can, therefore, sew into fabric. A coverlock sewing machine makes sewing so much easier. It sews the hem seam for a t-shirt and overlocks this seam or uses a simple chain stitch seam. You will save a lot of time. And you can look forward to some professional seam and design results.
When is a coverlock machine a worthwhile investment?
If you are enthusiastic about sewing and would like to make your sewing projects look more professional, a coverlock sewing machine is definitely worthwhile for you. You will quickly produce beautiful and neat hem seams, decorative seams or a chain stitch seam with a coverlock machine.
However, a coverlock sewing machine cannot replace a standard sewing machine. It focuses on sewing fabrics together, and producing hem seams and decorative seams. You need a sewing machine for sewing on buttons, making buttonholes and for adding adornments. Embroidery also requires a special machine. At W6, we offer the following combinations: a sewing and embroidering machine in one or, for example, the later acquisition of a W6 embroidery unit EU7.
Place professional seams
For a long time, coverlock machines were only used in industrial sewing. More and more private and amateur sewers are interested in this machine. Create professional hem seams and decorative seams with ease on various fabrics such as cotton, elastic fabrics or wafer-thin fabrics. Depending on the stitching program, our W6 coverlock machines have up to 4 sewing and hemming programs to choose from. Of course, you can also use the optional special cover feet to sew on trendy crimping and lace, hem ribbons, or sew on cords and run-in threads.
In general, our machines have a four-thread system that you can use to produce sewing projects with two to three threads. If you only use two threads, you save a lot of money on thread. You can also decide whether you wish to sew with one needle, two needles or three needles.
Broad cover seam with three needles
This four-thread seam is often used as a hem seam for highly durable seams. You can generally use this seam to sew highly elastic and very stretchy materials.
Broad cover seam with two needles
With the three-thread seam, you can sew a vast number of materials. You can also use this seam to create stressed hem seams for t-shirts and polo shirts. This seam is approx. 6 mm wide. In comparison to the four-thread seam, you can save a spool of thread here.
Narrow cover seam sewn with 2 needles
A three-thread seam is created again. Simply removing an external needle makes the cover seam narrower. This narrow version of the cover seam can serve as a durable end seam or decorative seam. This seam is approx. 3 mm wide.
Chain stitch seam
The aim is a two-thread seam. The removal of 2 needles means that only one needle thread and the lower hook thread are used for sewing. This results in a so-called chain seam or chain stitch seam, which appears on the upper side of the fabric as a so-called backstitch.
