The 6217C doesn't have a blind hem foot. You need the General Purpose (low-shank) foot, the General Purpose Needle Plate and the blind hem guide (part number 381213). The guide gets secured by the screw that holds the presser foot shank. This site, http://cart.jennys-sewing-studio.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=473 , has the blind hem guide available. This metal foot might fit your machine: http://cart.jennys-sewing-studio.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=530_73_101_164_168&products_id=463 .

I hope this helps.

I found the same numbers on my Singer, but learned that the 13608M is not the serial number. I finally found it on the bottom of the machine. It typically begins with either a single or double letter. You can find the Serial No. and Year of Issue at http://www.singerco.com/support/serial_numbers.html. You can also order a replacement manual. Another helpful site might be http://www.ismacs.net/Singer/singerdates.html.

Good luck.

I have a singer sewing machine model 1 I am wanting to order a blind stitch foot. I don't seem to be able to locate can you help me?


Hm, if you talking of a blind hem foot, this indicates that one came with the Singer One.

1 ONE Singer Sewing

It appears your machine has a snap-on foot capability, so if that is the case, a snap-on blind hem foot should work.

Blind hem foot can not be attached to my machine


I downloaded and took a look at your user's manual, to get an idea of the problem. Apparently, the blind hem foot that you have is a screw on foot rather than a snap on foot. I don't know if you have tried to lower the foot when you are trying to change it; if that still doesn't work, you might think about getting a snap-on foot instead, and leaving the top part of the foot stationary.

It's also possible that your buttonhole foot CAN go up a little more; you might try bring it ALL the way down, then "smacking" it up to see if it won't go up just a little more. You might also consider a right-angle screwdriver to get the screw off.

Does the singer 3116 come with a blind stitch for hemming


Most sewing machines come with a blind hem stitch. It is the one that looks like several small zig-zags then occasionally a large one, or several straight stitches then a large zig-zag. Either will result in an invisible hem.

Some machines have a special foot but it is not necessary, mine does not. There is however a special way of folding the fabric.

See http://welcome.solutions.brother.com/BSC/public/eu/eu_ot/en/faq/faqh/000000/000000/000017/faqh000017_000.html?reg=eu&c=eu_ot&lang=en&prod=hf_rs240250260euk

Or also an instructional video: http://www.ehow.com/video_4407404_machine-sew-blind-hem.html

Hope this straightens things out for you!

What are the settings for a blind hem stitch? I've ordered the foot but can't find the settings. Singer 57815


I downloaded your manual for free at www.singerco.com and I be darned, I see why you are baffled. Call Singer at 1-800-4singer and ask them to tell you. This is a first for me to see in a machine that is not that old, my 45 year old Kenmore has the blind stitch setting. There has to be some answer to this.

What does the blind stitch foot look like????


If you mean a blind hem foot, you can go to www.brother-usa.com and look at their accessory catalog. It is just a presser foot that has an adjustable screw to set for an edge guide. You don't have to have a Brother any low shank blind hem foot will fit. You can order from them, 1-877-276-8437 or any online sewing machine parts place, ie. www.sewingpartsonline.com.

Which food sood i use to make an invisible hem


blind hem foot is good if you want to machine stitch a hem but not have a seam showing. it will have an adjustable piece you can move left or right with a screw. but blind hemming works best on straight grain and not on a curve like a skirt hem unless its a knit fabric that gives. to make a blind hem press the hem allowance up then turn the main garment piece back to form a Z shape. you then stitch along the hem side with your blind hem foot guidr running along the top fold and use the blind hem stitch which looks like three little zigzags then one big zig far to the left onto your folded piece taking a little 'bite' - this stitch shows on the right side when you press the top of the Z back flat. so you need to adjust the foot position and how wide the needle swings to minimise this stitch showing. hope this makes sense and helps you with your sewing.

Just purchased this model today and it has no blind hem foot. Instruction manual telle me I need to purchase from local dealer. Can this be odered on line? Manual quotes number 006812008 is this...


You can order from Singer at 1-800-4singer or ebay. On ebay they start at about $14 + $2 for shipping. Just put in "blind hem foot for Singer and you will see a variety of them. Take your pick. I don't know what Singer charges. JoAnn fabrics may carry them or a sewing machine retailer but anyway you do it, it is not expensive. Just remember that you have a low shank machine. Good luck and happy sewing.

Bought blind hem stitch for a 3116 singer and the needle hits it


I think you may have to make an adjustment on your blind hem foot, it also could be the wrong fit for your machine.
