How to Use the Blind Hem Foot for the IDT System

Blind hemming is the perfect way to finish the hem on a garment when you do not want a stitching line visible. As suggested by the name, when the hem is complete, it is almost invisible.

It is perfect for skirts, dresses, trousers, curtains, etc., made with non-stretch fabrics.

The unique way you fold the fabric and use of the Blind Hem foot makes this technique simple and easy to achieve.

Use similar coloured sewing thread, top, and bottom to your fabric to further hide the stitching.  Not only is sewing by hand is no longer necessary, and the stitches are now even and uniform!

Instructions for use:

  1. Snap-on the Blind Hem Foot.
  2. Fold the edge in by the hem width.
  3. Unfold the hem again so that the hem edge protrudes by about 1 cm.
  4. Position the fabric so the red edge guide runs along the edge of folded hem.
  5. Use the needle position and the width dial to regulate the penetration of the needle in the crease.

TIP: If the stitch punctures are visible on the right side of the project, adjust the red guide slightly using screw on the right side of foot.
