I would like to do the "Blanket stitch" that is on ready to wear garments and blankets. Can I do this with my Evolution or Ovation?

Yes, it can be done with the Baby Lock Evolution or Ovation serger models. Here are the general directions to set up your serger model for achieving a blanket stitch.

Settings for Evolution or Ovation Sergers:

  • Three thread flatlock stitch
  • Needle thread: Wooly nylon, Monet or your choice of decorative thread.
  • Upper Looper: serger thread
  • Lower Looper: serger thread

Cut a narrow strip of Sulky water soluble stabilizer and place along edge of fabric and serge the stabilizer into the flatlock stitch. Pull the stabilizer to the edge of the fabric and tear away. This action pulls the stitching into the blanket stitch.

Can I hem polar fleece with a narrow cover stitch?

Yes, use the narrow or wide cover stitch. With the needle side showing, it looks like 2 rows of top-stitching; with the looper thread showing on top in a nice accent to a garment.

I want to use Pearl Crown Rayon, Decor 6, Glamour or similar thread in the chain looper of the Evolve, Evolve Wave, Evolution or Ovation. What should I do to get the best results?

For best results, here are some suggestions:

  • Use the sponge disks under the Pearl Crown Rayon, Decor 6, Glamour spool, on the spool pin
  • Set your stitch length at 3-4 for best results
  • Stitch at a slow to moderate, consistent speed

When using the cover stitches on my Evolve, Evolve Wave, Evolution or Ovation, can I sew as fast as when I am doing overlock stitches?

When using cover stitches it is best to sew at a moderate, even speed. That will give you a more consistent stitch quality because your fabric will be fed more evenly. This is especially true when using the combination stitches.
