Babylock-Grace, good fit, nice hem
I recently used it for a light jersey knit cotton fabric to hem the neckline and armholes of a childen’s size tank top t-shirt. It’s a little tricky to use, but one you get the hang of it it looks really good. For good instruction on how to master this foot go to threadsmagazine(com) and search for “Mastering the Narrow Hemmer”. It’s a 3-part series. I am very pleased with the many feet I have bought from Distinctive through Amazon (Sold by Mr. Vac & Mrs. Sew ). Enjoy!
A great fit for my Brother sewing machine!
Yay! These are a little hard to find retail. It fits and works great on my Brother SR-65 machine. Plus, it was delivered with AMAZING speed!! I had a project waiting on the delivery and it was even faster than I would have dared hope!
rolled hem foot
When I found the product on your site, it listed the machines that it would fit and gabe a breif idea on how to use. I liked that very much. This product arrived in a very short time and works just as advertised. I found the instructions to be simple and easy to read and understand. I will continue to shop for hard to find items on your site.
janome sewing foot
Liked the idea of sewing my own rolled hems. However it did not have much instruction with it.. Played with it for several days before getting it to do what I wanted. Good product. Long wearing metal. Needs more instruction. Check Janome website or get Janome book on using presser feet.
Roll-hem presser foot
Works great with my Babylock DenimPro (circa 1994?), on several fabrics (even flannel) and using zig-zag. Didn’t work on straight stitch since I can’t position the needle on my machine to far left or far right, center only, which causes the stitch to miss the roll entirely — but that’s a problem with my machine, not the foot.
Delivery was lightning fast, and the product was exactly as advertised. Thanks!
It works, but takes practice
I made silk scarves for Xmas gifts this year. This foot took practice, but once I figured it out, it worked well.I’m a beginning sewer, so I was quite proud of my narrow hems when I was finished.
Great for Lame and Organza fabrics, and blanket stitch too.
I predominately use organza and lame fabrics with a curved edge. A nice finished hem with the organza is difficult on my serger and lame is impossible but this little $10 presser foot is the answer. It works for both types of fabrics and for curved edges too.
Others have complained the hem is too narrow but it’s perfect for a blanket stitch. The finished look is perfect and I’ve saved tons of time on projects.
It’s not hard to figure out but if the thread breaks or the bobbin runs out mid-project, it takes a little bit of maneuvering to reposition the needle right where you left off. I’m sure with more practice and experience it will become 2nd nature.
I have a Kenmore machine; the presser foot is easily attached.
A nifty idea, but you have to practice
The instructions that came with the foot were not as helpful for me. However, I watched a tutorial on You-Tube and then the instructions made sense. Again this is another sewing machine accessory that I needed a lot of practice to get it to work. Probably if I was more patient that would have been be helpful. I also recommend practicing when you use different fabrics. I used this to finish the hem of a cotton top I made for a little girl. it made a nice narrow hem. I think this style of hem would be more appropriate on satin clothing or similar fabrics which typically have a very narrow hem. But for most of the things I make, simply folding over the hem two times and then stitching is suitable and looks fine.
Brother ‘feet’ can get expensive. Distinctive is a great alternative- fits great, works well on my machine and at about 1/3 the cost!! I am now a ‘Distinctive’ fan.
