    Question chain stitch

    Can anyone tell me if there is a newer machine that has the chain stitch capability?

    Babylock has a couple sergers that do the chain stitch, not sure if it is the same thing you are talking about though,

    The Babylock Sashiko machine does a hand look quilting stitch on the front, but the back is a chain stitch.

    Some of the old Touch and Sew machines can be set up for Chain stitch - IMHO that would be the redeeming virtue of owning one...

    The chain stitch is the reason I got one but the funny thing is I needed vintage looking decorative stitches for some baby gifts I was working on. It was the only machine in my herd at that time that had what I wanted. It sewed like a dream, quiet and smooth. I can't remember which one it is off the top of my head. It is a 600 series and a very pale blue.

    Some of the 158 series Kenmores had chain stitch adapters...the ones with the needle plate insert that you can switch from straight stitch to zigzag. I have a 158.1755 that came with one & it makes a very nice chain stitch.

    I'm thinking it would be a good idea to take a hard look at the accessories that come with a machine - and read the manual!
