Blindstitching provides a durable hem finish

that is almost invisible. It is best suited to

straight or slightly curved hems. Taped, bound,

turned, or unfinished hem edges can be blind-
stitched with equal ease. Blindstitching takes
a little practice, however, so make a test sam­

ple first.

1. Mark, turn, and press hem in the usual way.

2. Baste a guideline 1/4 inch (6mm) from top

of hem edge.

3. With the work wrong side up, turn the hem

under, creating a soft fold about 1/4 inch

(6mm) from top of hem.

4. Place hem edge over feed of machine with

bulk of fabric to the left.

5. Screw seam and hem guide into hole at

right of slide plate and adjust it over the
right toe of the presser foot so that it rests
next to the soft fold.

6. Stitch so that straight stitches fall on hem

edge and sideward stitches pierce the soft

fold. While stitching, guide the fold evenly

against edge of hem guide.

7. When stitching is completed, swing guide

out of position before raising presser foot

Remove basting stitch.
