I do not know of a manual for the cover stitch machine. Back when the sergers were just out Palmer/Pletsch and Gail Brown put out excellent handbooks. I don't see anything for the cover stitch other than Debbie Cook's tutorials here on PR. I would sure like to know all the uses for the stitch and all the gizmos and their uses....done like the serger handbook which Gail Brown and Patti Palmer put out. As it is I go to my RTW and see where the stitch was used and copy it...but I am yearning for a good how to book. Debbie are you working on this!?

Debbie, if you write a book, even if it's not only coverstitch, I'd buy it, too...

I'm in line for a book by Debbie Cook. Maybe you could get a live nearby sewer to help put it together. I know it would be a lot of work, and would be much appreciated.

Aww thanks for the support, but WHEN would I have time?

Of course, if some book editor wants to offer a huge advance, I'd find the time. Yeah, that's not happening.

But there is not ONE book out there. It would be the book that would be purchased with every cover stitch machine sold!!!

I'm thinking back to when sergers first came out for home use...did sergers start selling and then the books came out due to demand for instruction and ideas on using them, or did the books come out and then sergers started selling because people saw what they could do with one? I'd imagine it may have been similar when sewing machines started doing more than straight stitch and zig-zag also.

I'm in the waffling stage on buying a coverstitch due to wondering if I'd really use one. Although right now the finances are saying "no", I'm thinking for the future.

Since I have a couple of serger books, it's a fairly safe bet that if (oh lets just say it, 'cause we know it's going to happen someday - WHEN) I get a coverstitch, I'd buy a book for that too. At least one book given my past history on book-buying.

I couldn't write it. But I would love to organize and edit such a book!

I bet there's a publisher out there somewhere who sees the potential in this one.
