Blind Hem - part 2
I tried to repond to the comment - no luck, so new post.
First image is cloth guide (seam guide), second image is blind hem foot.
In order to achieve a blind hem with the serger - the RIGHT needle (no left needle) must just penetrate the fold of the fabric less than 1/8" in from the fold. It will most likely trim away the excess of the raw edge of the flat edge of the fabric.
To do this - most people use a blind hem foot or a seam guide. For some sergers the blind hem foot requires that you lower the cutting blade. Whatever one works best for you or feels more comfortable - is the one to use.
