I was so excited to see this new double sided top coverstitch machine by Brother! I can think of so many applications for these decorative stitches including sportswear, decorative stitching, chainstitch, hemming knits, and so much more. I am going to start a set of tutorials with the top cover stitch machine by showing you an in-depth look at threading the machine, including the top cover thread. At first it might look intimidating, but threading is quite simple.
Start by taking you machine out of the box and remove the packaging tape. You will find a dust cover, manual (always keep that handy), a plug with pedal attachment, accessory box, and DVD. If you have more than one machine in your sewing studio here is a tip: place all machine parts in a decorative box and keep each box next to the coordinating machine.
If your machine already has the top coverstitch threaders attached it will look like the photo below. If not, the video will show you how to remove and reattach these parts. You will need 5 spools of serger thread to thread the entire machine (I am going to use different colors so you can see a little better). When threading the coverstitch machine, start with the looper which is the spool on the far right side. You will then move onto threading the needles. For this demonstration I am using all three needles.
