My overlocker/serger and I are good friends (as long as I play by its rules).  Over the last couple of evenings I've been teaching it and me a new trick - flatlocking. This is not a new technique to the world of sewing and garment manufacture. I'd read about it in issues of Threads magazine, in sewing books and serger books but hadn't really understood it.

My inspiration to actually sit down and work it out was a book by Palmer/Pletsch. However information on line such as this 2 page pdf are also very helpful
