21. NARROW HEMMING
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.
