Blind stitch consists of six straight stitches
and one zig-zag or blind stitch. It provides
a durable hem that is almost invisible when
using thread the same color as the fabric.
Only the blind stitches will show on right
side of garment. Best suited for straight or
slightly curved hems.
Turn up hem the desired width and press.
Turn raw edge in Va" and press or baste
in place. Fold hem back against right side
of garment with top edge of hem extending
to right of garment fold.
Place garment under presser foot so that
straight stitches will fall on hem edge and
zig-zag stitch just catches one thread of
the folded edge. Guide fabric evenly while
stitching or use cloth guide as an aid. For
better control, use low speed setting.
For a less bulky hem in heavy fabrics
finish raw edge of hem with tape or lace
to eliminate turning in raw edge. Fold
fabric so straight stitches will fall on tape
