Blindstitch Hem Guide

Blindstitching provides a durable hem

finish that can be used on a variety of

light and medium weight fabrics, ft is best

suited to straight hems. Taped, bound,
turned, or unfinished hem edges can be

blindstitched with equal ease. Blind-

stitching takes a little practice, however,
so make a test sample first.

1. Attach blindstitch hem guide as in-

Instructed on page 6.

2. Mark, turn, and press hem in the usual

way. (You may want to baste the

turned hem to hold it in place. If so,

be sure to place the basting at least

i inch from hem edge.)

3. With the work wrong side up, turn the

hem under, creating a soft fold about

i inch from hem edge. Press lightly.

4. Position the hem under the foot with

the soft fold resting against wall of
guide. Make sure flange of guide is

between the soft fold and top of hem.

5. Lower the presser foot and stitch so

that the straight stitches fall on the

hem edge and the sideward stitches

pierce the soft fold. While stitching,

guide hem edge in a straight line and

feed the soft fold evenly against the
wall of the hem guide.
