BabyLock Ovation Serger Manual: How to Secure Seams (Pages 72-73)

Hey Everyone, I received a few questions about how to secure the ends of a seam that isn’t finished by an intersecting seam or hem.  Instead of using a bodkin or large eye needle to thread the tail back through the looper threads, give this method a try.  You can secure the beginning of the seam by bringing the tail around and stitching over it… At the end of the seam, you flip the fabric end to end and stitch back over the seam, kinda like a back tack on your sewing machine.    I’ve been using this method of finish the side seams on some of my knit tops when I decided to leave the hem raw.   It’s a very cool technique, quick and durable in the washing machine.  Let me know what you think!  (I know some of you are thinking that you would never leave the hem raw… that’s another story for a different day 🙂
