Done Easily & Quickly every time!
Read on to find out more...
Are you sick of that ever-growing pile of pants / skirts / whatever that need blind-hemming... because you're just not in the mood for hand-sewing?
How many times have you gone to get dressed in a hurry, only to find the hems of your pants or skirts have come undone, but there is NO time to go to your tailor for blind-hems?
Most of us have experienced this, sometimes all too often....
We all LOVE professionally finished "invisible" hems, where you cannot see the stitches on the right side of the garment.
This invisible stitch is called a "Blind Hem". Traditionally it is all done by hand, but these days clothing manufacturers simply run them up using a blind hem machine, often with clear nylon thread so you really can't see the hem.
This is great until the stitching comes undone. Yep, it happens. Just like how buttons come off your garments as soon as there is a loose thread, your blind hem also can unravel just as easily, if not more....
That means you often end up with LOTS of small repair jobs of blind hemming! Not fun....
There's NOTHING more frustrating than having to rush and hand-finish your blind hem just before you need to go out - when you need them in a MAD hurry...!
What would it be like to NEVER have to worry about blind hems unraveling - and No more frustrations, No more time wasted, No more "ouch" moments from pin pricks when you rush to finish your hem by hand, ever again?
Imagine being able to finish ALL your hems invisibly with professional-looking blind hems, on your own machine, done easily, quickly, and with Great Results EVERY TIME because you know how!
Often the hard part is to come up with exactly the right tool, for the right job, at the right price.

What is a Blind Hem?
A blind hem refers to an invisible hem - as opposed to a straight stitched hem where you can see the stitch line on the right side of your garment.
Blind hems are commonly used on better quality / more dressy garments such as tailor pants and skirts.
Yes. Unless you want to hand-sew your blind hems the traditional ways...
Hand sewing takes time that most of us do not have. Using the blind stitch on your sewing machine* can be almost as invisible as a hand sewn blind stitch.
Having the correct foot and learning how to use it saves you hours of hand sewing.
*yes, blind hem stitch IS available on most sewing machines, even if you never got a blind hem foot with your machine.
You'll be amazed the results from using this foot.
A small price to pay for a beautiful finish."
- Dalia, a Happy Customer
What makes this foot "universal"? How does it adjust?
Take a closer look, you will see this adjustable screw or "dial" which controls the white "guide".
By moving the dial, you will notice that whole guide moves - left or right.
This means no matter where your needle position might be, or whether your machine allows you to change needle positions, you can ALWAYS make fine adjustments to ensure that your blind hem comes out perfect - to suit your particular garment - no matter what fabric type of weight.
For BEST results, test on a piece of scrap first....
How "invisible" is this blind hem done on my machine?
Just like hand-stitched blind hems, the machine-sewn version is not completely invisible, but ALMOST invisible. You'd have to look fairly closely to see it...
Of course, the blind hem stitch done on a domestic sewing machine is not going to look identical to the result of an industrial blind hemmer....
You probably don't have a hemmer sitting around (nor would you want to - an industrial hammer only does blind hem and nothing else), but you can achieve very similar effects with the blind hem stitch - it??s the next best thing to an industrial hemmer.
How on earth is blind hem done on a sewing machine?
Easy. With a nifty stitch pattern, and some simple yet clever folding of your hem.
Have a look at your sewing machine: a blind hem stitch consists ofthree straight stitches in a row and then one zig-zag stitch (see "a"). There is also a version for stretch fabric, where the 3 straight stitches are replaced by three tiny zig-zags (see "b") to allow movements in the fabric when it stretches.
The idea is to have the straight stitch on the folded material of the hem and the zig-zag just catch a few threads of the main body of fabric. When you turn your piece right sound out, you will barely see small "dots" of thread being caught - ever so slightly - by the needle and holding your bottom hem in place.
The amount of fabric that is caught by the needle on the main part of your garment will effect the amount of thread that is visible. Consistency and an equal amount of fabric being caught is the key to having small, even "dots" or stitches on the right side of your garment - a little practice will make all the difference!
Some materials are trickier than others....
So it would be a good idea to start with something easy, like a medium to light weight cotton.
Practice on cheap, plain calico is always a great option, until you feel comfortable.
Here's a Quick "How To" Guide to creating blind hems....
Before you begin, the first point of reference your sewing machine manual is the best resource to learning how to use any functions on your sewing machine. This guide does not replace your sewing machine manual and is meant to compliment the information available in your sewing machine manual.
Make sure your blind hem presser foot is attached to the machine correctly, and you are able to adjust the guide by moving the dial to move the positioning of your guide in relation to your needle.
practice before you use this technique on your projects.
(1) Wrong Side of the fabric / garment
(2) 0.4 to 0.7 cm (1/4" inch or quarter inch)
You can also simply fold extra seam allowance into the hem instead [B], so the raw edge is in fact inside the hem.
[A] This method is suited to heavy weight fabrics
[B] This method is suited to light or medium weight fabrics
First, fold up the hem at the length where you'd like the finished garment to be. Press.
With the overlocked [A] / folded edge [B] towards your right, facing the sewing machine, fold the rest of the fabric / garment away from your edge, leaving a 0.4 - 0.7 cm (1/4" inch or quarter inch) allowance. See Diagram 1 above.
Next, position the fabric / garment so that the needle just pierces the edge of the top fold when the needle swings to the furthest left it will go. Lower the presser foot. See Diagram 2 above.
(5) Top folded edge
Select the blind hem stitch on your machine and start sewing. See Diagram 3 above.
Be sure your stitches are within the allowance from Diagram 1, and the longest stitch on your zig-zag catches just enough fabric (see "Handy Tip" below) on your top folded edge.
How much fabric you need to catch depends
on the type and weight of the fabric.....
If you catch too much (i.e. needle goes too far to the left), then your blind hem stitches will be visible on the right side of your garment... you will see a row of obvious dots!
On the other hand, if you didn't catch enough (i.e. needle didn't go far enough to the left), then your hem won't hold properly - it will simply fall out, as if you never had a hem.
That's why it is always a good idea to test it on a scrap of the same fabric first, if you are after a professional finish.
Now your blind hem is done! Does it look good?
Let's find out by opening the fold and have a look at the right side (see Diagram 4 below)....
(6) Right side of fabric / garment
Give it a good press with some steam, it will be even less visible after that!
What else can I do with a blind hem stitch?
Use this technique for hemming lined drapes, curtains, roman shades, side hems for draperies - and any other soft furnishing around the house. Save bucks by doing it all yourself!
With a straight stitch and using the guide on this foot for quick & perfect edge-stitching or top-stitching on your project. Creating professional results has never been easier!
Try some decorative tucks and interesting scalloped edges. Make your project one-of-a-kind!
Shhhh... Secret...Did You Know.....
You blind hem stitch is a real secret weapon in creating traditional applique - in a fraction of the time!
First, prepare your pieces by folding in the edges (it's easy if you're using freezer paper method*) and tacking them into your block.....
*Quick Instruction on Freezer Paper Method:
Trace and cut shapes out of freezer paper, iron their shiny sides onto the wrong side of your fabric, cut shapes out of fabric leaving a seam allowance around your shapes, then fold & press the seam allowance "into the shapes" (a little starch helps), leaving a smooth folded edge.
Or, be different and use a contrasting thread (see photo on the left)!
This is the quickest way to whiz up fabulous applique quilts as if you've spend ages doing needle-turn by hand!
