3. Lower presser foot and begin to sew.

Fiq. 2 9 ' .

Turn balance wheel toward you until needle reaches its highest

point. Raise presser bar and remove regular presser foot.

Attach hemmer foot (Fig. 29). Now handle material as

follows :

1. Fold over edge of material approximately

then fold

it over again for about 2". Insert this folded end into

spiral formed opening (scroll) of hemmer foot.

Move material back and forth until the hem forms itself

in the scroll.

2. Pull material toward you until the beginning of the hem is

just below the needle.

Guide material into hemmer foot while proceeding with work


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 the width of the hem. Using a very long stitch

and tight tensions will produce a shell stitch.
