I ive in the uk and have just joined this forum,my hubby is in process of making me a craft/sewing room. not sewed for a few years but eager to get sewing again. have a brother super ace 2, janome 300e embroidery machine and brother pe190. not used my overlocker yet as space been a problem. my question is about a cover stitch i have seen and wonder whether to buy or not. its on sale in uk for £339. uk pounds. it has free seam guide and clear foot, 5 year gtee and sewing scissors and 50 threads. seems a good buy but i know its not latest model. can anyone advise me if this would be worth me getting. many thanks and hope to speak more on here in next few months.

where abouts in the UK do you live? I live near Southampton.
I have had my Janome coverstitch for a few years and haven't used it much. Coincidentally I got it out of the cupboard today with the intention of mastering it.
If your usual sewing machine handles knits well, you may not need a coverstitch. I originally got mine because my Pfaff did not like knits and did not have adjustable presser foot pressure. If I had had my Juki at that time I probably wouldnt have bought the Coverpro.
There is a huge selection of threads on here with advice, if you sew lots of knits you get a really professional finish with the cover stitch.
