SOURCE: rolled hem or rolled edge

You need to disengage the cutting blade by openingfirstly opening the front and left hand side covers. pull on the larger of the two silver knobs and slide the red lever towards you. I'm not sure what the tension settings are, but I'm certain you need to reduce them a fair bit to aid in the rolling effect. I only use 3 threads when doing a rolled hem.
My description isn't too detailed but I hope it helps!

SOURCE: can't re-attach the stitch finger when done

Open the front cover and working table (the door that is on the left side). On the side of the needle plate is a ****. Line your stitch finger up so that its flat side is towards the machine. On the inside of that ****, there's a little bracket to hold the stitch finger secure--it slides into that. Good luck! it took me hours to figure this out the first time! There's a yahoo group for White model sergers---they are excellent resources, too.

SOURCE: I have a 3/4 thread 234 model Bernette overlocker,

Newcastle where?

In the US, a sewing machine repair service can do the work - a Bernina tech would be better.

Service starts at about $100 plus any parts that have to be replaced.

If you go to the Bernina website, there should be a dealer locator option.

SOURCE: I can't find my Bernina Serger 800 dl manual - how

From what I have read this manual is less than desirable. Neither is the one for the brand that I have.

You may have better guidance if you purchase and use Nancy Zieman's "Serge with Confidence". I have found it very helpful.

For the two thread rolled hem, the looper cover is used to "trick" the looper into "thinking" it is threaded.

On my serger (not a Bernina), this is referred to as a "subsidiary looper". It is a spring type mechanism that fits in a small hole at the top of the upper looper.

You use a rolled edge presser foot; right or left needle; stitch length @ normal or wider; stitch length @ 1mm for the left needle/0.5 for the right needle; differential feed @ normal; needle tension - tighten; lower looper tension - normal or looser; two thread looper cover - engaged.

Test and adjust the tension as needed before making the rolled hem on your garment.

I hope this helps.

I am using a Bernette 303 overlocker for sewing organza hemproll. What is the settings to do a proper job? I don't have a manual Please help>


Hello Annelize Barnard
'sounds like you are after a rolled hem on organza. A very beautiful finish indeed.
Thread serger for 3-thread rolled hem. This video may be very helpful https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bKZTa_kvDKQ

The needle tension will stay at the normal setting. The upper looper tension should be lowered by at least 2 and the lower looper increased by 2 ... these may be even more depending on the thread used. For best results use a "woolly" thread (woolly polyester is best as it will not melt with heat, although there are woolly nylon threads which are heat resistant). Test the settings on a scrap of the same organza.

Please let me know how this works for you.
Happy Rolling.

Make a rolled hem


If you want it done entirely by machine you will need a special attachment. You'd have to check the make and model of your machine to find out if there is an attachment available from the maker. If not, there are some companies that make general attachments, and they'll list what machines these will fit. Check online sewing supply houses for this kind of thing.

You can also make one by hand. Any decent sewing book would tell you how. Usually you sew a straight stitch along the hem, using quite small stitches. Trim hem to a quarter inch from the stitch line. Crease the fabric or press it along the stitch line to the inside. Anchor your hand thread, then take a short stitch right along the stitch line. Next catch one thread of the fabric a quarter inch above the stitch line. It's just a basic running stitch, back and forth. Every few stitches, gently snug up the thread, which will roll the hem over. The finer the fabric, the smaller the stitches you take where they'll show should be.

There are some images that will help, if you enter the following search terms in google, you will see several pictures. Type the words," Illustrations for how to make a rolled hem by hand ? " and you will get a load of ideas.

I need to switch to rolled hemming and can't find my manual


Is this on a serger?

Rolled hemming on a serger is usually achieved by doing the following: thread up for three thread overlock using right hand needle. Move blade to the right to trim fabric wider (so it rolls inside the seam). Put woolly overlock thread through top looper (this gives a smooth finish to the rolled hem). Loosen off top looper and tighten up bottom looper so the bottom looper is up tight against the needle thread on the underside. Test serge to get the stitch right, then turn the stitch length down to 0.5 to close it up tight (this uses loads of thread so I usually get everything else right first, then make this final adjustment). On my Bernette 334D tensions are R-Needle - 5, Top looper 7-8 and bottom looper is 3-4. Stitch length 0.5, differential zero.

And usually you flick a small lever or change a little finger on the foot or plate where the stitch forms, there is some variation here between models. Early Elna L4 and L5 locks you had a little finger you changed with a screwdriver on the pressure foot. Bernette has a little slide mechanicism near the blade that you flick forward to engage.

Hope this is of assistance to you - I went for a 2 hour lesson on my serger when I bought it and then came home and repeated all the techniques shown and then made notes and stapled all the stitch samples into a notebook so I could remember how I did it.

Also there are some great books on Serging, Nancy Zieman is one name that springs to mind. Or try You-Tube, she has some videos up there too showing different techniques.
