We have an industrial blind hemmer at work, and lately I haven’t been able to get good results with it on ANYTHING. If the fabric isn’t really heavy, it wants to gather it and make puckers at the stitching.
I used it yesterday to make a hem in a gathered skirt-I know the skirt didn’t taper at all, it was just straight panels of fabric-and it puckered. I pulled on the front and back as I would have on a regular machine, but it didn’t help much, and I don’t think I should have to do that.
The thing has a tesion adjustment, a “less/more” adjustment for how deep the “bite” is, and an adjustment for whether it takes a stitch for every revolution of the machine or every other one. What should I adjust? I’ve used a blind hemmer more than anyone else at work, so I can’t ask there, ’cause I’m the expert! *grin*
