Hi all!
I'd like to pick your brains if you all don't mind!:bg: I'm after a new overlocker, as I'm sick of my basic (with a capital B!) Toyota.
I'm hoping to get a machine that has cover hem capabilities, so far I've seen Elna, Bernina and the Janome Compulock.
Any thoughts? Does anyone own one of these or have any recommendations?

I have the Janome Compulock

It is great

I love that i can tell the machine what type of fabric then the type of thread and then the amount of layers. Then it adjusts to the right tension. No need to test stitches but I still do out of habbit. but it is always correct. the only adjustment I need to do is the stitch length. it has 22 stitches. 15 built in and then it can memorize 7 of that you set up your self.

It sews so quick and nice and clean. it is too cool. the Coverstitch has taken so much time off the projects I do. I used to serge then turn under then do a mock coverstitch with a twin needle. now I turn and it is done. perfect each time.

And "it is simple enough to be a Memory Craft"
The more you disaprove, the more fun I am having!
