- The part of a serger that cuts material to match the overcast stitch. The edge of the material is cut when the fabric passes through the needle
A knife is a built-in part on a serger, which cuts the edges of the fabric as you sew an overcast stitch. This enables the threads to overlap the edge of the fabric and encase the raw edge completely.
Serger Knife Stats-
- Size: Depends upon the brand of your machine. Be sure to check your manual before purchasing replacement blades.
- What to find: Along the edge of your presser foot. The knife blade buts directly against the edge to slice the fabric as it passes across the deck of the machine.
- Where to buy: Grab replacement knife blades at your local quilt shop or here on line.
