How to Sew a Blind Hem

Video Length: 2:53
Produced by: Evamarie Gomez and Judith Neukam

In Threads #167 (June/July 2013), Threads seamstress Norma Bucko shows you three ways to sew a blind hem. In this quick video-tutorial, we bring two of her methods to life and demonstrate how to sew a blind hem on a standard sewing machine and a dedicated blind-hem machine. This hem is supported by stitching that is not visible on the garment's right side. Although it takes a little more preparation than a topstitch hem, it is easier to sew.
