Turn balance wheel towards you until needle reaches its

highest point. Raise presser bar and remove the regular presser

foot. Attach hemmer foot (Fig. 24).

1. Fold over edge of material approximately H" wide, then

fold it over again in the same way for a length of about

2”. Insert this folded end from beneath into spiral formed

opening (scroll) of hemmer foot. Move material back

and forth until the hem forms itself in the scroll.

2. Pull material towards you until the beginning of the hem

is just below the needle.

3. Lower presser foot and begin to sew. Guide material

into hemmer foot while sewing (Fig.24).

NOTE: Do not crowd material into scroll and do not leave scroll only partly filled by material, feed just enough

material into the hemmer foot to fill out the scroll.

Instead of a straight stitch, you can also use a zigzag stitch for this hemming operation. Be sure however,

to adjust the width of the zigzag stitch to be as wide as the hem itself. Using a very long stitch and tight

tensions will produce a shell stitch.
