2 THREAD OVERCAST
The needle and lower looper threads form an edge finish that is lightweight and flat. Often used as an open seam edge on lightweight fabrics.
3 THREAD ROLLED HEM
Excellent for hemming on medium to lightweight single layer fabrics, on scarves, napkins and ruffles. It can also be used to create decorative pintucks.
2 THREAD ROLLED HEM
Since there are only 2 threads, the result is lighter and finer than the 3 thread version. This is suitable for fabrics like chiffon and also used for bridal veil edging.
Hem finish with a slightly scalloped appearance, used to hem sheers and lightweight delicate fabrics. Works well on chiffon, georgette and fine knits.
LETTUCE LEAF EDGE
3 thread rolled hem using the differential feed. A popular decorative wavy edging on stretch fabric. Can be used for more dramatic curves if used with a nylon cord. The differential feed controls the speed of fabric which can be used to either create more wave or to ease stretch and puckers.
FLATLOCK 3 & 2 THREAD
3 thread is perfect for joining fleece and knit fabrics. Can also be used as a decorative accent with heavier threads to resemble the top cover stitch seen on sportswear. 2 thread is ideal for joining lace to silk on lingerie. The reverse side looks like a ladder stitch.
