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!!
I have a Viking Huskylock 936 serger which I invested in partly because of its ability to convert to a cover stitch machine, but I found the conversion process to be difficult and time consuming, and was never pleased with the results. I decided to invest in a separate cover stitch machine, and chose the Brother 2340CV. I absolutely love it! It's a breeze to thread, and the cover stitch it produces is so much nicer than what I was able to make with my serger. I also like that I can keep it set up for hemming, and my serger now stays set up for serging.
The manual tension release.... I was hesitant about this, and wasn't sure I could get used to it. However, the Babylock machine with the automatic tension release was quite a bit more expensive, and I technically didn't even need a cover stitch machine since my serger will convert. So I decided to give this a try, and found the manual release isn't an issue. There are a couple blogs online with tips for using this machine, and one of them had detailed instructions for finishing a seam and releasing the tension. It took me a couple tries, and suddenly I got the hang of it! Once you get the right technique, it's really easy.
One reviewer mentioned problems with stitches. I've had no problems whatsoever. While it's possible she got a lemon, the problems described could also be due to a damaged needle (I use new needles for each project), or using the wrong type of needles for the fabric. Just something to keep in mind...
My version of this machine came with extra feet for attaching binding and making belt loops. Works beautifully, but once again, tips found on online blogs make these processes much easier.
If you're looking for a great cover stitch machine, I highly recommend this one. Just be aware that this machine is to be used in addition to, and not as a replacement for a serger. It is not a serger!! It would probably be helpful if Amazon updated their description and didn't refer to it as one.
