Does anyone have any recommendations on an overlock machine that produces a quality purl stitch for finishing pocket squares. Im looking to purchase one. Thank you.

Your etsy shop says you're in Maryland. There is currently an ebay listing for a Merrow MG-2DNR-1 available for local pick-up in New Hampshire. It's likely a bit of a drive but it might be worth looking into. http://www.ebay.com/...CwAAOSwVJhZSWCw

 

Otherwise, if you're looking for the lowest possible price and you want to buy online your best bet is buying a "head only" from a reputable ebay seller. However, you would still need to take it to your nearest sewing machine dealer to get it setup with table and motor, etc. Unless you have the time and know how to do it yourself.

All of this is in reference to industrial sewing machines, that's what I use, have access to and know most of. Someone else may be able to recommend a domestic machine.

$950 w/table is a screaming deal on one of those.  I use one fairly regularly at a co-op studio in Denver & it's a great machine.

Are there co-op studios in places besides Denver? Do they go by other names?
