Bernina Blindstitch Foot #5
Blindstitch foot # 5 is the invisible-hemming expert! When you sew a blind-hem with this foot, the stitching can scarcely be seen from the front. With Blindstitch foot # 5 the stitch is formed over a special blade that acts as a guide, creating a slightly loose stitch so that the hem lies nice and flat.
When the fabric is pressed flat, the needle-penetration points on the front of the fabric “close up”, making the seam virtually invisible. What’s more, the guide blade ensures an even distance to the folded edge, allowing the hem to be sewn neatly and consistently.
Suitable for practically all fabrics, Blindstitch foot # 5 also makes quick work of narrow-edgestitching medium weight and thick fabrics with the needle position to the left or right.
Discover Blindstitch foot # 5 and let it help you get to grips with challenging hemming tasks!
The main use for Blindstitch Foot #5 is sewing a blind hem. The goal is to stitch a hem that lies flat and does not pucker. Because the guide extends down the middle of the foot, the needle must form the stitch over it as the hem is sewn. This makes a loose stitch, which in this case is a good thing. The extra slack in the thread lets the fabric lie flat without puckering once the hem is stitched.
