With Pfaff, you'll find a great selection of innovative overlock machines, each offering different performance ranges and features. They are called hobbylock and coverlock. They definitely have the right model for you. Take a good look at everything at your local Pfaff dealer.
Other features to consider when buying an overlock:
Simple threading. At first glance, the threading looks somewhat complicated, but it isn't. Just follow the color-marked thread paths. Depending on the model, threading aids are available, making threading even easier.

Optimal fabric feed...
is important for an even and clean stitch. This is accomplished with the differential feed. Two feed dogs, one behind the other, can be set for any kind of fabric and prevent any unattractive puckering, even with those hard-to-sew fabrics.

A great selection of stitches...
The type and number of stitches differs from model to model. Of course, even the smaller models offer a good stitch program range. The top class overlock machines by Pfaff even include professional industry stitches in their repertoire, like the 5-thread safety-stitch. Optimal for stitches that need to stand up to a lot of wear and tear.

Perfect hem finishing...
A new generation of overlock machines, the coverlocks by Pfaff, offer the professional cover stitch. The coverlocks don't just sew, cut and serge - they also hem. And they do all this in one single process. You have to see it for yourself to truly appreciate it.

And what else is important?
  • A big collector that catches all the waste fabric.
  • The electronically controlled needle-piercing power that stays consistent at any sewing speed.
  • The easy setting of the individual stitch programs.
  • And, of course, the fact that all the controls are conveniently located and easily accessible.
