How to use a blind hem foot

Blind Hem Foot on a Serge

“Blind Hem Foot
Hemming is the forté of the blind hem foot, but it can also be used to add some creative accents as in decorative flatlocking. The blind hem foot allows you to precisely guide the fabric so rows of flatlocking remain absolutely straight.
Stitch: 2- or 3-Thread Flatlock
Needle: Right
Width: Normal
Length: 4 mm
Differential Feed: Normal to 1.3
Blade Position: Unlocked (engaged)
Subsidiary Looper: Engaged for 2-Thread Flatlock Only
Presser Foot: Blind Hem Foot”

“ Fold hem to the wrong side of the fabric and pin in place, pinning parallel and close to the fold.
2 Fold the fabric back on itself, leaving at least ¼” of the hem extending beyond the fold.

“3 Place the fold of the hem under the foot and begin sewing, barely catching the fold with the needle and trimming the extending hem.
4 The adjustable guide to the right of the foot is essential in determining “bite” of the stitch. Adjust guide on the foot by loosening the screw and sliding the guide left or right, moving the guide closer to or farther away from the needle. If too much thread shows on the right side of the garment, move the guide farther away from the needle (to the right). If the needle thread doesn’t catch the hem, move the guide closer to the needle (to the left). A simple adjustment for fantastic results!
5 Pull stitches flat and press when hem is complete.

What cause thread breakages

Thread Breakages

Just sure before you start to sew, make sure the fabric is place under pressure foot. Just like if you was going to use a regular sewing machine. (only when you going to cover stitch) I used polyester thread. I found when I use 100 precent cotton thread or silk; it break easier; or could be the thread is too old. Some sewing supplies stores that sell thread that don’t have a plastic cover around it, you made have to test it to see if not weak. Also make sure the tension on thread of the machine is not loose or tight, all these possibilities it’s what cause thread breakages.

How to use an elastic foot on a serger

Elastic foot

The elastic foot stretches and attaches the elastic to the fabric as the serger trims the extra fabric. It save you time, especially with narrow elastic that is hard to attach with other methods. Some elastic feet have an additional hole to insert corded elastic, fishing line or fine wire, which gives you many decorative options.
You want your stitch to be a 4-thread overlock
Needles must be right and left, the width is normal
Length is 4 mm
Differential Feed: 2 (tightest setting)
Blade Position: Locked
Presser Foot: Elastic Foot


Elastic Insertion
1 Your serger should be 4-thread overlock. Also, a cover stitch can also be used with some elastic feet.
2 Loosen the pressure control screw on the top of the foot, so the elastic can be placed between the roller and the lower support bar if you are having difficulty

3 Don’t forget to insert elastic and slide it to the back of and under the foot.

4 Tighten the pressure control screw slightly.

5 Attach the elastic foot to the serger.

6 Stitch a sample and adjust the pressure control screw as necessary for the desired effect. Tighten the screw to add more elasticity to the fabric. Loosen the screw for less elasticity.” That all you to try to remember.
