Twin needles are easy, though you may have to play with tension on your sewing machine.
Did you ever see the article in Threads magazine that Carol Ahles did about various twin
needle effects?  There's a nice summary chart, too.

Remember, though, that coverstitching stretches, while twin needle stitching will pop.

Good idea.

I'm also firmly in the camp of "separate coverstitch machine".  Much easier.  Current favorite
among the standalones seems to be Janome.

But you have to have space.

Beverly, who has taken over one of the upstairs bedrooms (vacated by  
younger DD many years ago) for my "embroidery room".  By the time I  
accumulated lots-o-thread, tons-o-stabilizers, the computer,  
loose-leaf books for design thread-change print outs, clippings of  
ideas, etc. there was no way to squeeze everything into the real  
sewing room.  


Re: Flat lock look a like Stitch

I lack all the embroidery folderol, so can't speak to that,  
but my sergers and sewing machines live in a 30x36" space,  
rotating in as I need them.  All I have to do is swap two machines
and connect the power.

Seriously.  And it works quite well for me.
