This Roll- and Shell Hemmer 68 is ideally suited for hemming soft fabrics such as T-shirts or lingerie.
A scroll on the foot feeds the fabric edge from the front and turns it under twice, all in one operation. This produces a narrow, sturdy hem, which in combination with the corresponding stitch type creates the popular scalloped (or shell) hem. Roll- and shell hemmer 68 is equipped with a 2 mm wide guide. Use with a Zigzag, Blindhem, or Vari-Overlock Stitch to produce a 3-5mm scalloped edge. This guide is deeper and rounder than is usual with hemmer feet, enabling a decorative, slightly three-dimensional hem pattern to feed through freely.
Recommended for soft lightweight fabrics such as fine knits and tricot. Click Here for a Video
