Overlocker and hem help

Postby jennyclaire » Sat Jan 07, 2012 11:15 pm

If I was to do a hem using my overlocker would need to reduce down to 3 or 2 threads and which ones?

what sort of a hem are you trying to do?
You can do a hem that shows the overlocking at the bottom (which means you can still use 4 threads). You can do a rolled hem that is curly like in this pic - it is a 3 thread (but you still see the overlocking thread).

The sort of hem I have here on the red t-shirt is made by using a coverstitch machine rather than an overlocker.
