    remove the left needle, leaving the right one in place. Move the cutting blade to the right a little so the fabric is wider inside the seam than the threads, making it roll under. Tensions: needle 5, top looper, loosen off to 2, and bottom looper, tighten up to 6. This makes the top looper thread to "wrap" around the edge of the fabric as you want it to fully encase the seam. Shorten down the stitch length once the tension is looking good. Lastly, use wooly overlock thread in the top looper if you want a "filled" in looking seam as it will relax and fluff out.

SOURCE: Which threads do I use to make a rolled hem?

Only 3 threads are used for rolled hemming ........you will need to change to rolled hem mode with a slider switch or a special needleplate, depending on your machine, ...the manual will tell you how to go about it if you have one.
Use both loopers, and the Right hand needle....(remove the Left needle)
If you cannot figure it out, call the dealer where you bought the machine, or one that sells that make, they will probably help, they may even offer to show you or do lessons for a modest fee.

SOURCE: My machine is skipping stitches only when I use

Put in a new needle and see if that helps, sometimes they have developed a burr or a slight bend. They recommend a Schmetz 130/705H, Try it and see if it works, I got my fingers crossed for you.

How do i create a rolled hem using my Platinum 750?? Do i need a special presser foot?


by rolled hem I imagine that you are trying to put something like rope in the hem to make a round edge
You can buy a 1/2 foot that allows the needle to get close to what ever is making the roll
see your local sewing machine shop

What foot do you use for a rolled hem on janome 5700??


You can always use a snap-on foot but you will also need the snap-on shank adapter for your Janome machine:

How do I adjust tension on a Janome Harmony 9102D


Sounds like you want to do a rolled hem for a handkerchief edge, I do the following to create a rolled hem on my over locker. Take out left needle and cut and remove that thread. Open front cover and slide back lever for the stitch finger in the needle plate, this finger stops the fabric rolling under thread tension normally so you need to pull it back out of engagement. Your Janome may have a similar means to select the rolled hem or you may need to remove the stitch finger with a screwdriver, it varies between models.

Thread upper looper with wooly nylon and right needle and lower looper in matching colour thread. (You can go wooly on the bottom looper but it hardly shows so I never bother.) Disengage upper blade and move the fixed lower blade to the right to trim less, then lower upper blade back into position. Now tension, needle leave alone (5)' upper looper very loose (2-3) and lower looper tighten up to 6-7 and test stitch. You want the upper looper thread to go right underneath and the lower looper thread to disappear against the needle stitch. And the fabric to roll inside the stitching. Finesse tensions on the loopers until this is right, you may need to change blade position too, depends on weight of the fabric and how it rolls. Once this is right turn stitch length down to close up stitching, 0.8 or even 0.5 if you want full coverage. Thats it. You can use differential feed if you want a fluted rolled edge, nice on knits.

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!

This may be too small to read, if so, email via
www.bargainbox.com.au and I shall send it on........remember to only ever use the R needle, so you only have 3 threads.

To move the Rolled hem arm, you will need to release the upper knife (knob on left inside cover....push to the right and blade moves approx 6mm) so you can slide the small metal tongue to correct position for:

N = Normal
R = Rolled
