How do I get a continuous hem on slacks with my blindstitch hemmer? It skips stitches after going over serged seams.


See if your pressure foot is touching the machine tightly to move the hemmer more steadily. There is a release button on top of the machine push it down if it is up. Hope this helps.

How to do blindstitch hem with a pfaff 1035. I have the blind stitch foot


You need to also have a blindstitch stitch on your machine. It looks something like this:

-------V--------V--------V-------

The straight stitch segment is stitched on the hem fabric, but the V portion zags over and catches a couple threads in the fold on the wrong side of the garment fabric.

DOES THE TACSEW T1718 MACHINE SEW IN A ZIG ZAG


Does it have a Stitch Width control? If not, it is probably a limited stitch only. Most Tacsew machines are made for high speed industrial sewing and frequently are made to perform a limited number of stitches. It appears this is a blindstitch for hemming.

I have a Kenmore sewing machine Model 158.17030. It's an older model and I don't have the user manual. I can't figure out how to set it on the hemming stitch. No matter what I do, it just sews a straight...


Hi. First, I'd recommend you get a replacement manual. They are really useful. Check out http://sewingpartsonline.com/sewing-machine-instruction-manuals.aspx.

I assume you have different stitches on the machine and a diagram of some sort showing what each stitch looks like. Find one that looks like:

---^---^---^--- (maybe on its side). That's the blindstitch. Some machines require you use a blindstitch foot with the stitch, but some don't. Without the user's manual, it's hard to say what your machine requires.

Good luck and let me know what happens.

How do you adjust timing on Rex commercial blind stitch?


I was just researching the same issue, only for my Lewis Blindstitch. I found a copy of the US Blindstitch maintenance manual on the mansew.com webstite. It looks like the setup is very similar to my machine, so maybe you can adapt the information to yours also. Good luck. Sorry, I was not able to post the hotlink, but this is it spelled out, exactly as it shows.
