@ Wrong side (Bottom side) of fabric

On heavyweight fabrics that ravel, the raw edge should be
overcast first. Then fold the hem, as illustrated leaving 1/4"

(0,7 cm) of the hem edge showing.
Lower the presser foot, then loosen the foot holder screw to

place the hem guide between the screw and the shank of

foot holder.
Tighten the screw making sure the wall of hem guide is

placed in the middle of the toes of the presser foot.

Raise the presser foot and place the fabric under the foot

so that the fold rests against the wall of hem guide.
Lower the foot, then stitch slowly for better control so that

the zigzag stitches fall on the hem allowance and pierce
the fold.

While sewing, make sure the fold runs along the wall of

hem guide.

This strong, durable stitch is recommended where both
elasticity and strength are necessary to ensure comfort
and durability.

Use it to reinforce areas such as crotch and armhole

seams as well as to eliminate puckering on knits and
stretch fabrics. Also use when constructing items requiring
extra strength such as backpacks.
