Bernina Blindstitch Foot 5
Blindstitch foot 5 is the invisible-hemming expert for sewing blind-hems on all fabrics. The stitches catch only a few threads of the hem fabric, so they are virtually invisible on the front.With this foot, the stitch is formed over a special blade that acts as a guide, creating a slightly loose stitch so the hem lies flat. When the fabric is pressed flat, the needle-penetration points on the front of the fabric "close up", making the seam virtually invisible. The guide blade also ensures an even distance to the folded edge, allowing the hem to be sewn neatly and consistently.This foot is ideal for hemming garments, curtains and other homeware projects.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.This foot fits the old Bernina mechanical models from the 530 to the 1630, including the current 1008.
