An overlock machine (also known as a serger) can be the perfect piece of equipment to take your sewing skill to the next level. They’re required to perform special overlock stitches, which are a form of stitching that is sewn over the edge of one or more pieces of fabric, which is useful for hemming, edging and seaming on your creations.
When performed successfully, overlock stitches reduce the risk of fraying on the ends of garments. They also look very professional, lending an air of expertise to any garment. The machines themselves are also relatively affordable. As such, overlockers are popular among professionals and hobbyists alike.

Overlockers specialise in stitching over the edge of 2 separate pieces of fabric to prevent fraying and provide a neat finish to multilayered creations.
Overlockers are capable of sewing a higher number of stitches per minute than regular sewing machines. They can also use multiple lines of thread at the same time and can perform stitches that a sewing machine can’t, such as the cutting knife stitch, flatlock stitch and, of course, the overlock stitch.
For more information on the distinction between the two machine types, see our blog on the difference between a sewing machine and overlocker.
