What is a Coverstitch Sewing Machine?

A coverstitch sewing machine is a specialised type of sewing machine. It is used to create professional-looking hems, seams, and decorative stitches on garments and other fabric projects.

Unlike traditional sewing machines, which typically use a single needle to stitch seams, a coverstitch machine uses multiple needles and loopers. They create parallel rows of stitching on the top side of the fabric, with a looper forming loops on the underside, similar to the stitching found on ready-to-wear clothing.

Coverstitch machines are commonly used in garment construction for hemming garments, attaching ribbing and elastic, and creating decorative topstitching. They are also popular for sewing activewear, knitwear, and stretch fabrics, as they can create strong, stretchable seams that are resistant to popping or breaking.

In addition to coverstitching, many coverstitch machines also can perform other stitches such as chainstitching and overlocking, making them versatile tools for a wide range of sewing projects.
