How To Use A Sewing Machine Hemmer
Hemmers are available in many styles and sizes, however their use and function are the same.... to produce a professional way of securing and protecting the raw edge of the fabric.
Please check our web site for the many available types and sizes for your particular sewing machine.
- To Start The Hem At The Edge:
- 1. Pull up the bobbin thread.
- 2. Fold the edge of the material twice, about 1/8" at a time, for a distance of about two inches. Finger crease folds.
- 3. Lay about three inches of needle and bobbin threads back under hemmer, as viewed in Figure #1. Place creased edge of material under hemmer with end of hem directly under the needle. Lower hemmer and tack end of hem with two machine stitches.
- 4. Raise hemmer. Pull threads and hem slightly from you with left hand, then while holding threads, draw material toward you with your right hand to scroll of hemmer until tacked end is caught in hemmer, as shown in Figure
- 5. Lower hemmer and commence to sew, slightly pulling threads back while sewing. Keep mouth of hemmer full to produce a smooth even hem by slightly pre-rolling the fabric as it enters the scroll of the hemmer foot, as shown in Figure #2.
