I’ve got this awsome serger/overlock machine that I love (a Babylock Evolve, manual here: http://www.babylock.com/ftp/whitepapers/Evolve_BLE8W_InstructionRef.pdf), but I have a very basic problem: when I serge across another seam there’s too much bulk, the feed-dogs seem unable to make the fabric pass the presser foot, the fabric slips to the left and the seam ends up to the right of the fabric (= an opening in the seam).
I’ve tried adjusting the differential feed to a higher setting (which has worked to avoid the same problem at the end of a piece of fabric), which helps a bit, but it’s not enough.
Does anyone know the trick to avoid this? I’m sure there is one, but I’m really clueless and the trouble makes me sew less than I should (not good!). Help, please!!
