A seriously pointless point without photos, but its fab. While I was practising how to use it I made 10 wipes in minutes! Then I gave up learning and went straight into making jimjams for the Toots. It s so flipping quick its not funny

I'm glad you are enjoying it - get your camera out and show us what you have done :whip:

Sim it has the facility to cut edges and kind if wraps three or four thread around the edge of the fabric. it means you can create really neat edges. When you have a sewing machine you usually tuck the fabric in and sew ( turn and top stitch )

It's fab for stuff like wipes with different layers

@sim its an overlocker, just the american name. It creates all the lovely seams that you see in proffessional stuff. or the fancy edging on knit fabrics.

Seriously worth it!
