Blindstitch Hems

(only 8007 and 8019)

Blindstitching provides a durable hem finish

that is almost invisible. It is best suited to
straight hems. Taped, bound, turned, or un­
finished hem edges can be blindstitched with

equal ease. Blindstitching takes a little prac­
tice, however, so make a test sample first.

1. Mark, turn, and press hem in the usual way.

2. Baste a guideline at least 1.3cm (1/2") from

the top edge of the hem so that the basting
will not be caught by theflangeof the blind­
stitch hem guide.

3. Attach the blindstitch hem guide to the

presser bar (see Page 5).


With the work wrongsideupandthebulkof

the fabric to the left, turn the hem under,
creating a soft fold about 6mm (1/4") from
top edge of the hem.

5. Position the hem under the presser foot

with the flange on the front of the guide
resting on the 6mm (1/4") hem edge and

the soft fold against the wall of the flange.



Stitch so that straight stitches fall on the

hem edge and the sideward stitches pierce

the soft fold. While stitching, feed the soft
fold against thewall of theflangeand guide
the hem edge in a straight line.
