Spent my first afternoon in Edinburgh test driving self threading overlockers at Drummonds Sewing. Nothing wrong with my faithful Bernina but no longer able to thread it due to sight loss. My interest in garment sewing has rekindled, particularly with knit fabrics so an overlocker is fairly essential for a good job.
Have had it a month now and getting on very well – I can even see to change needles myself with aid of magnification. This has extended my sewing pleasure no end.
Self threading – Amazing!!!
