Can any one tell me about the uses of a Blind Hemmer? How does its use and utility compare with a serger.

    To Pauline,
    A Blind hemmer is a specialized machine that does hems. If you do alterations and/or lots of hems, then a blind hemmer is a godsend. If you don't own a serger, get the serger before a blind hemmer. Most home sewing machines have a blind hem stitch that approximates what a blind hemmer does. The big difference is that the blind hemmer uses a single thread, to form a chain stitch, which can easily to pulled out, if necessary. Test drive before you buy.
