Attach Blindstitch Hem Guide

Prepare the hem by folding it and

pressing it in the usual way. You may
wantto baste the hem to hold it in place,

as shown. If so, be sure to place the
basting at least Vi inch (


mm) below

the top edge of the hem allowance.

With the wrong side of fabric upper­

most, turn the hem under, as shown,
creating a soft fold from the top edge of

hem. Pin or baste all three layers
together in place.

Position the hem under the presser

foot with the soft fold resting against
wall of the guide. Be sure the flange of
the guide is between the soft fold and

the top of the hem, as shown.

Lower the presser foot and begin
sewing making certain the straight
stitches fall, on the edge of the hem

and the zig-zag stitches just pierce
the soft fold of the work. Adjust stitch
width If necessary. While stitching,
guide the hem edge in a straight line
and feed the soft fold evenly against
the wall of the guide.

If layers of fabric are pinned together,
remove pins as you come to them. Do
not sew over pins.
