What exactly is a coverhem machine? How is it different from a serger?
I only use my coverhem machine for hems. I don’t know what else it can do. HELP!
In this series of comprehensive workshops, we will explore:
*How to do the most professional hems on your coverhem so your projects look like Ready to wear garments! No skipped stitches! No puckering & tunneling! Just professional, flat, neat necklines, cuffs and hemlines on knits and more.
*Mastering the coverhem tape binder for super quick and neat binding on T-shirts, swimsuits, lingerie
*Using your coverhem to make straps and ties for garments, belt loops, lingerie, bags and more.
*Reverse Coverstitching - what is it and where can I use this in my sewing?
*Oooooo..... the possibilities for Chainstitch!
*AND using your coverhem machine for lace, elastic and ribbing applications.

This workshop series is suitable for ALL brands of coverhem machines (combo sergers or stand alone coverhem machines) provided your coverhem machine is in good working order and you have a working knowledge of how to operate it. We are not going to cover basic operation like threading, what are the buttons & knobs for in this series. It is assumed you have had your owner's lessons with your machine dealer or have worked your way through your owner's manual. This series focuses on kicking your coverhemming up to the next level so that you can utilize the full potential of your coverhem machine.
However, if you require basic operation tutoring you may book an individual Zoom session with me ahead of time here: https://sewwithliz.com/products/new-sewing-coaching-with-liz-one-on-one-or-small-group-sessions
