Your machine cannot do a cover stitch. Check the Brother website, they make a cover stitch only machine, it works much better than any of the serger/cover stitch combination machines, and it is a lot less money.

I have a Bernini Funlock 007D that is jammed. motor runs but handwheel will not turn. Help please.


Probably needs a thorough oiling. Mechanical machines really need frequently oiling to keep them running. Liquid Tri-Flow Synthetic Lube applied a couple drops every place metal rubs on metal (wiggle the handwheel gently and watch where things move). Do NOT oil belts, synthetic parts. Then direct hot air from a handheld hairdryer into the internal metal mechanics. May need to repeat a couple more times until it moves freely again. This works great on sewing machines too.

I have been given a Bernina funlock 007d and would like to be shown how to thread the machine, I live in Parklands Cape Town


Although not your model, the models do not change much. Just be sure to raise the presser foot when you thread the machine and thread each thread in the proper order (upper looper first, lower looper second with thread draped over the upper looper, then the needles).

Trouble sewing lycra fabric using a zig zag stitch


You have the machine set for blind hem stitching. Change the stitch selector to stretch stitch, which is a single, in line stitching zig zag stitch.

Can you do a coverstitch on the Brother 634D serger


I don't think so, the D in your model name would denote that it has Differential feeding but is probably a 3/4 Marrowing stitch only. So this means it would do 3 thread overlock, 4 thread overlock and you can probably set it up for rolled hemming too.

Coverstitch is fairly new to home sergers and is available on some machines along with the 3 and 4 thread stitches, but changing between the regular overlock and a coverstitch takes a few minutes. The model number will usually have a "C" in the name. Also, during coverstitch the blades are disenaged and don't trim your fabric so you still need often to go back with blunt scissors and trim the raw edge.

And sewing coverstitch can be finicky, with skipped stitches a problem. Use high quality thread and XL (extra long) or SUX (stretch extra long) needles to avoid this.

However some manufacturers are now making dedicated coverstitch machines; if you are assembling a garment with your regular serger, you can then just move over to the coverstitch machine to sew the hems and necklines and not spend 20 mins changing over your machine's functions. Much more productive.

You may wish to check out the Brother 2340CV, this is their dedicated domestic coverstitch machine. Link to product info is http://www.brother-usa.com/homesewing/ModelDetail.aspx?ProductID=2340CV

In the meantime, best solution is a twin needle to stitch the hem from the right side of the garment on your regular sewing machine, looks much the same, and you can get twin needles with a 4mm or 2.2 mm gap and in stretch and sharp tips for less than $10 each. Just iron up the hem about 1.5cm deep, and thread up your sewing machine with the twin needle and two spools of same colour on top (I just wind an extra bobbin and use this plus the original thread spool rather than buy two spools).

Just sew really slow as the twin needle builds up a lot of heat and will break if you push it along. I use this finish on all my knit garments and it works just fine. Sometimes I'll iron in a 2cm strip of fusible web inside the hem to give it some firmness in a neckline, then twin needle stitch at about 1.7 from the folded edge.

Hope this answers your question.

I've got an Elna 634 overlocker, and want to turn


Just trim the fabric to the desired hem length plus one inch, then overlock around this raw edge with thread close colour match to the fabric.

You then have the choice of either stitching around with a stretch stitch on your sewing machine, or hand sewing.

Being lycra shouldn't change how you hem them unless the trouser leg is extremely close fitting and the hem seam is going to be under tension.

My first choice would be using a twin needle in straight stitch from top side but this finish can pop/break if the hem is under tension. But perfect for most knit hems.

If you hand sew then you can turn up hem allowance and put a length of fusible hemming web inside the hem allowance and press it to hold. Then do a back stitch hand sew around to hold hem in place.

If you sew with the regular sewing machine, then use either the stretch stitch or a very small zig zag, and a ball point or stretch needle.

On ready to wear you would see a coverstitch hem but your overlocker doens't have this stitch.
