First get a new quality needle of the right size for your machine use a good quality hemming thread and check your tensions. If this fails to fix the problem you will probably have to have the timing checked.

How to do blindstitch hem with a pfaff 1035. I have the blind stitch foot


You need to also have a blindstitch stitch on your machine. It looks something like this:

-------V--------V--------V-------

The straight stitch segment is stitched on the hem fabric, but the V portion zags over and catches a couple threads in the fold on the wrong side of the garment fabric.

Blind stitch won't lock


This is hard to find in the internet so I hope this will solve your problem...

Frequently Asked Questions

Q) Help!
I am breaking a lot of needles and the tension is getting too tight on its own while stitching and causing the thread to break. I am learning the machine for two weeks. Is it so sensitive too wools, cottons, and fleece that this would make such a major difference in the stitching - breaking needles, breaking thread?

(A) It may not be tension that is causing the problem with your portable blindstitch. If you have broken needles it has probably left some needle burrs in the thread and needle path that need polishing off with fine emory cloth (crocus) before sewing again.

Start with a new LWx6T needle without thread or fabric. Watch the needle as you turn the hand wheel. If there is needle deflection, reduce the penetration dial until there is no needle movement. If there is needle deflection caused by burrs, they must be polished off. Check the looper tip and two arms for any needle burrs and polish off. If there is needle deflection caused by the needle track lifting the needle, lower the track very slightly with the screws on the side of the black metal bracket above the needle.

Finally, Back off on the tension dial and retighten while you are sewing with a light strong thread and light to medium weight fabric, until you get the correct tension without loops. If tension is too tight it will push the thread up so it is not all the way down between the tension discs where it belongs.

(Q) I can't understand how to finish off at the end. It
always unravels. I have read the manual and it seems simple but I
apparently just "don't get it." Any help would be appreciated.

(A) At the end of the blindhem seam, position the needle all the way to the left, then use the knee lift to remove the fabric and jerk on the fabric at the same time. That will tie off the tread and break the thread at the
needle without bending the needle. You can weave the thread tail back into the stitches or cut it off. Before the above procedure, you could also turn the handwheel counterclockwise for a few stitches, then come back to the end of the seam and repeat the first procedure above.

Blind hemmer is "frozen" won't move at all. What can I do?


on a normal sewing machine this usually means the threads are all snagged up in a knot in the bobbin case. Snip your threads, wriggle the fabric out, remove all snagged threads and rethread the machine. I don't know if this will work with your blind hemmer.

How do I do the skinny narrow hem stitch


Blind hem or straight stitch with 1/8" or 1/4" hemmer foot. Fabric inserted into right-hand "tunnel". Always do a regular backstitch, forward stitch before inserting your fabric in. Makes it easier! Happy sewing. Suggestion: make miniature copy of your manual and you can always have it handy for reference. Jimmy

Why won't my Bernina Activa 140 sew the blind hem stitch?


Are you absolutley sure you're not getting a problem with stitch formation on, for example, wide zig-zag. Check again, using a different colour top and bottom and make sure that the stitch is being formed properly with only the top colour on top and bottom colour on the bottom. It sounds as though the bottom loop is not being picked-up by the hook properly. Make sure you've thoroughly cleaned-out any fluff under the stitch-plate and remove the hook/shuttle and give the hook race a good clean and give it a single drop of oil, even if you've got the lightweight part-plastic hook/shuttle fitted.
