What is single needle top stitch?

One of the most basic stitches used for topstitching is a single needle, straight stitch. This is typically used for tacking seams down, attaching pockets, turning and topstitching on things like cuffs or button tabs; but can also be used for hemming sleeves and garments (although that isn’t my favorite method).

How does a single thread sewing machine work?

When the point passes through the fabric, it pulls a small loop of thread from one side to the other. A mechanism underneath the fabric grabs this loop and wraps it around either another piece of thread or another loop in the same piece of thread.
