I do not have this brand, but thought these instructions for a 2-thread rolled edge might help -

Presser foot - Rolled Edge
Needles - Right or Left (depending on the width you want).
Stitch Width - Normal to Wider (your choice)
Stitch Length - 1 mm/left needle; 0.5 mm if using the right needle.
Differential Feed - Normal
Blade Position - Up
Right Needle Tension - Tighten
Lower Looper Tension - Normal or Loosen
2-Thread converter - engaged.

The converter may also be referred to as a subsidiary or auxiliary looper. This fits into an opening near the tip of the upper looper to "trick" the upper looper into thinking it is threaded.

The above information is from "Serge With Confidence" by Nancy Zieman. I have found this book to be more helpful than the instruction manual that came with my Babylock Imagine.

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!

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.

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.

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
