If you want to do blind hemming you need to find the stitch on your machine that looks like 3 small zigzags, then one bigger one, or 3 straight stitches, then one zig zag to the side. This is the blind hemming stitch. You'll possibly also have a blind hemming foot to use, which helps with guiding the fabric fold into the machine and keeping it even.

As the previous poster said, blind hemming is a little difficult to explain. You'd be best served by visiting http://sewing.about.com/od/techniques/ss/machineblindsti.htm for photos and intructions, getting a copy of a manual for your machine (if it doesn't have this stitch, then you're going to need to find another way) or getting a ibrary book out.

Blind hemming works best when hemming straight edges of fabric such as a ruffle on a full skirt - if there is any curve in the seam, it gets much harder and the result won't look so good. In essence, you press the fabric hem up, then fold the hem edge back under so you have a "S' shape, then sew along the single layer with the folded edge sitting against the foot guide. Then when the machine takes the 4th wide stitch, the needle swings to the left and catches a small stitch into the upper folded layer, then back onto the hem. The trick is adjusting the stitch so that the wide stitch doesn't show much on the right side of the garment.

SOURCE: what is a Narrow double hem with hand slip

You can find some instructions on a narrow double hem at http://www.sewjanetmoville.co.uk/content/learning/viewArticle.asp?lcArticleCategoryID=0&lcArticleID=3&pgid=learningCentre. Instead of machine sewing it, use a hand slip stitch as seen here: http://www.hutchal.clara.net/curtains/sewguide.htm.

You can find more info on these techniques at http://www.repair-home.com/how_to_sew_repairs.html

Hope this helps! Let me know if you need more info.

SOURCE: I don't know how to use a Bernina foot I have

There are videos on the Bernina website on how to use the feet. #61 -#69 are all hemming feet. Look on this page of presser feet videos. Click the one that says #64.

Can I make rolled hem with a Juki MO 2366 N?


Most likely. Most overlockers can make a rolled hem. You will probably want to do a lot of practicing on scrap chiffon before trying it on the real thing. It involves using only one needle, both loopers, and making appropriate adjustments to the machine.

If you scroll down to "Serger," and download Workbook 1, there are instructions in there for setting up a rolled hem.

Your machine differs but the way it functions is very similar--at least the settings should be helpful.

I have been given a Bernina funlock 007d and would like to be shown how to thread the machine, I live in Parklands Cape Town


Although not your model, the models do not change much. Just be sure to raise the presser foot when you thread the machine and thread each thread in the proper order (upper looper first, lower looper second with thread draped over the upper looper, then the needles).

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

How can I find instructions for a narrow hem foot for my Kenmore sewing machine?


If your machine came with a narrow rolled hem foot, the instructions should be in the manual. You can find the manual online on the Sears website, support, manuals and instructions. If you do not have a narrow hem foot for your machine, look online for a universal foot that would fit your machine. Search on youtube or Sewing machine makers websites for tutorial on using a Narrow Hem presser foot. good luck,

Where can I get a manual for bernette fun lock 006D


Serger manuals for early machines are really basic.

Thread in order.

upper looper, lower looper, right needle, left needle. (see the inside of the looper cover door.)

Adjust tensions to suit the fabric you are sewing.

If you need to change colors clip threads near the spools and tie on new spools to previous threads and draw threads through an already threaded machine.

Bernina is the brand. But I believe early models of the serger were made by Juki. I've looked for the manual for 006 as well and found thinging. Your only other choice is find someone who has one for sale and ask for a scanned copy.... or order a new one from Bernina or one of the other places that has one.

I can't find my Bernina Serger 800 dl manual - how do I thread for a 2 thread rolled hem, and do I need a upper looper cover and that the heck is that anyway?? Thanks


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.
