  • Wow - what an awsome machine
    Verified Purchase

    Not a seamstress by any definition and never thought I would want a machine like this…frankly, I didn’t even know, until recently, how professionals accomplished the finished edges of drapes and hems. I just knew my projects (few as they are) never looked like theirs, no matter what I did. Well…not until now! This machine is mind blowing. The speed and ease of use is surprising. It’s not as large as it looks on line, it’s easy to set up, as it comes pre-threaded. You can seriously fly through projects. Woohoo, it’s a lot more fun to sew if you have the correct tools! Instructions about how to align the fabric are a little vague, so check out the British guy on Y...... He has a very informative video on blind hem machines. Who knows, perhaps I will make one soon. Don’t be afraid…

    OMG I never thought you could hem things so fast. This machine is so fast it is a little scary. It take a little time for learning curve but once you get it, you will wonder how you lived without it

    I HATE hemming and I always have to hem husband's, mother-in-law's, 2 sons' garments and I disdain this chore. Finally, after reading umpteen reviews and viewing many You Tube videos, I decided to try this one knowing it was at the lower end of the price range for hemmers. It is not a large machine and includes a clamp to secure it to your sewing table edge which you really need, to keep it from sliding away from you as my serger often does. The instructions are fair for the set up; the remaining pages related to diagnosing problems you may incur with adjusting your tension/stitch length, etc. were obviously mechanically translated, I would assume from Chinese. Forget it... they make absolutely no sense and are unusable. So, you will have to rely on the internet, blogs, or just your own trial and error on scrap fabrics. You will learn how to tweak it for your needs and then it's a breeze. Like many industrial type machines, good quality oil is essential to the smooth functioning of the hemmer and when it arrives, you will notice the smell. I knew that prior to purchasing from other reviewers, so it was no big deal. Caution - to wipe it down well, especially the bed, so as not to transfer any oiliness to your fabric. Not a problem. It hems and hems only, but it does a far better, faster and easier job than the blind hemmer foot on my high end computerized sewing machine. You can hem fabric edges that have just been serged, or fabrics that have been pressed with a folded edge, with the option for stitches that are closer together (no skip), or 1 skip where the stitch catches the fabric with more spacing between the blind stitch. Wished I had owned this some years ago when I made so many custom drapes for over-sized tall windows in our own home (with lots of hemming and hawing) - this would have been a breeze with professional results. You can use invisible thread (softer is better) or good quality polyester serger thread color matched to your fabric. The machine can run at quite a fast speed, so practice is important if you've had no experience with a hemmer. It does come pre-threaded, tools included, and some minor assembly - not difficult unless yours arrived as mine did with probably a few tosses in transit. Do not throw the box away until you've set up everything on your machine. I became very frustrated when attempting to attach the tall metal thread spool guide with instructions saying to loosen the screw to insert the pole, then tighten. I looked and looked for what might be the screw they were referring to, but there was no screw. Nothing in the plastic bag(s), nowhere, and had to have it. So, I went out to the garage and retrieved the actual box with the Styrofoam, carefully pulled out all the packing down to the bottom of the cardboard shipping box, filled with some small debris and disintegrated Styrofoam balls. Alas, in the very bottom tucked under the edge of the box flap was the SCREW needed to attach the thread guide pole. Obviously, in shipping, it had come loose and fallen out. Moral of story - don't dispose of any packing until you have finished your assembly. I experienced it; you may not, but could, so don't panic as I did at first. Otherwise, I am happy with it and time will tell.
