Juki overlockers sew your seams and trim off raw edges all in one swift sew and the coverstitch machine blasts through any hemming project. No more frayed edges or waiting for your sewing machine to zig-zag its way around!

Juki overlockers are known world wide for their industrial durability and professional look. 

They are known for MO-654DE and MO-1000 Air Threader which makes threading so much easier.

What is an overlocker?

An overlocker sewing machine is a specialised type of sewing machine that produces a finished seam with an overcast stitch.  It is also known as a 'Serger'.  Overlockers use multiple threads and creates a looped stitch. Overlockers are fast sewing machines that give a professional finish because they encase raw edges with an overcast stitch.

What is a coverstitch machine?

A coverstitch is a machine that’s primarily used for hemming knit garments. It creates stretchy stitches and it covers the raw edge of a hem all in one pass. If you sew a lot of knit garments and you want to create hems without using a twin needle or a zigzag stitch, you might want to invest in a coverstitch machine.
Most coverstitch machines can sew with one, two, or three needles, plus they have a looper underneath.

If only one needle is used, then a simple chain stitch is created. This stitch can be used for binding, hemming, and topstitching - it's great for topstitching jeans!

If three needles are used, then three lines of parallel stitching appears on the right side of the fabric, with the looper producing a complex thread pattern on the reverse. You can use this stitch for hemming, decorative stitching, elastic, and creating mock flatlock seams.

By far the most common arrangement is to use two needles to create a classic T-shirt hem look.  As there are three needle positions, you can create a narrow or a wide 2-needle coverstitch.
