narrow hemmer foot

bonkers | Posted in General Sewing Info on

Has anyone tried the ajustable hemmer attachment featured in the article about vintage machine feet ? It was in Issue No 149. If so, please tell me yor results. Is there a secret I missed?  The corners are impossible! Such as on handkerchief.  Thanks, Bonkers

    Re. Narrow hemmer foot


    There are lots and lots of great attachments out there for the sewing machine, some are an invaluable asset to have and become a tool you will use a lot and some are very tricky to master.

    The narrow hemmer foot is one that is very tricky and will take a fair few goes to master, there is no right way of mastering the attachment as you will find your own way of doing it with practice.

    I still find that doing narrow hemming with a standard foot is the most affective way as you have more control over the technique especially round corners. I personally find that manually i can create a far more professional outcome than if i use the foot or attachment like the hemmer. This also aplies to the flat felled seam, blind hemming and various other techniques.

    I must admit i am one for having every foot in the range so i suppose i am guilty of trying all the techniques with the various attachments but the manual way is always best.

    Good luck in your sewing projects.

    Kind regards.
