My overlocker arrived this week, so I made up a couple of easy items to get used to it's capabilities. Here we have a tube top (Jalie 2565) and a pair of shorts with frilly bottom edges, to be worn as a sleep set.
The overlocker is the Bernina 1150 MDA. I have had trouble with the automatic needle threader on the LHS...it takes about 20 attempts to work...faster to thread it the ol' fashioned way. I broke the LH needle at one point...I didn't realise, and kept stitching. The broken needle kept piecing my fabric, so I was left with tears in the fabric...I have not had this happen before...perhaps that shows the power of this beast?
Apart from that, all going well...I'll stitch up a few more unimportant things to get the hang of it.
