11. Matching thread — 4 spools (1 spool for the sewing machine + 3 spools for the overlocker / coverstitch machine)

- sewing machine for construction

- one-sided foot for the sewing machine

- overlocker for construction and finishing raw edges. This may be replaced with a stretch overlock stitch or a zigzag stitch on the sewing machine (overlock or zigzag stitch width 2–3 mm, stitch length 2.5 mm).

- coverstitch or coverlock machine. If you don’t have a coverstitch machine, it may be replaced with a twin needle on any regular sewing machine that can do a zigzag stitch.

Important! We recommend using specialty needles when working with knit fabrics (for example, STRETCH, SUPER STRETCH, JERSEY, etc.). When sewing, a ball-shaped needle point pushes the knit loops apart without piercing the threads.
