TRICK #1 - REMOVE YOUR GARMENT FROM THE MACHINE: It's super simple; once you're done sewing the hem, 1. Open the looper door. 2. RELEASE THE LOOPER! 3. Lift the presser foot. 4. Press open the thread tensions with your fingers. 5. Remove the hemmed piece with no sticking or tugging. 6. Push the looper closed before cutting the threads, and you're ready to sew your next seam. The trick is to release the looper, because the needle threads wrap around the looper during sewing and they don't want to let go. Turning the knob never helps me.
TRICK #2 - SEW THE PERFECT HEM (or neckline or armhole) WITHOUT IRONING: STEP 1: On your regular sewing machine: BASTE the edge of your fabric, about 1/2" from the edge of the piece. Use long (6 mm) stitches to ensure easy thread removal later, and sew one long continuous seam all the way around the piece (very important to create "folding tension"). STEP 2: On the Cover Stitch machine: use the basting thread to create the fold (fold at the "dotted line" of thread) which will make a perfect 1/2" hem. As you sew, you can pull gently against the basting thread which creates enough tension to keep your fold perfectly aligned at the 1/2" mark. STEP 3: When finished, remove using Trick #1 above; and thread the top threads through to the underside of the garment edge and tie on the inside before clipping short. STEP 4: Remove the basting threads from the fold and you're done! The end result not only looks beautiful, but the seam stretches with your fabric, allowing you to surprise and amaze all your friends. :)
The basting (Trick #2) might seem to be extra work, but trust me, you will be THRILLED with the results, especially if you sew knits/stretch fabric that doesn't lend itself well to pressing. But don't stop there, I've tested it, and the basting technique works very well for non-stretch fabrics also.
I will never go back to life before a serger and cover stitch machine (I have the pair of Brother machines). I am a changed woman and people marvel that my clothes are actually home-made. Even my teenage daughter allows me to sew for her now! The machine will enable you to hem Under Armor shirts, and the results look incredibly like the original. If you're on the fence, just go ahead and buy this machine! I assure you, follow my tips and you will NOT regret your purchase... best wishes and happy sewing!!
There is no automatic tension release on this machine. You won't be able to get the fabric out by pulling. My machine came with a sheet with photos telling step by step how to get the fabric out. It wasn't difficult and after a few tries I had the system down pat. Yes, it's a bit annoying to have to take the time to do it (you have to cut the looper thread and re-set that and you have to pull the thread for the needles down to give slack and then pull through the needles and trim to avoid re-threading the needles), but it's not a deal-breaker for me - especially with the models having automatic tension release being more expensive!
The other thing is that in the manual and in some videos I've seen, they pull the threads through to the back side to tie them off and prevent the stitches from coming out. They make it look easy - just kind of scratch with your fingernail until the thread comes back through. Nope. Not easy for me. I couldn't get it and kept loosening other threads in the chain stitch on the back. It was a mess. The solution is easy though - I just thread the front threads (I generally use two needles) with a regular sewing needle and use that to pass it through to the back side of the fabric so I can tie the ends in a knot. Works every time!
