Wide Hemmer feet are very useful tools. Making a rolled hem goes much faster and you get more accurate results. There is no more need to pre-press the whole hem. Simply pre-press (with iron or your fingers) the start of the hem, pressing under twice the width of the hem and feed it into the guide. The guide on the hemmer turns under the raw edge and allows it to be easily stitched into place, giving you professional looking turned hems on most medium to heavy weight fabrics.
Sure, there are lots of different methods of finishing your raw edges - you can blind hem, overlock and then fold over twice, use a contrast fabric, or even leaving it raw.... But there are many cases where you simply cannot beat a classic rolled hem - all smooth, neat, and incredibly professional looking. Your handmade garments will no longer look "home-made"!!
The Wide Hem Presser Foot Set includes 3 sizes of hemmers 1/2", 3/4" and 1". The width of the final hem may vary slightly depending on the weight and thickness of the fabric.
Most people are less familiar with these wide hem feet than they are with the little brothers: the rolled and flat hem feet (these are included in our ultimate presser foot set, feet #30 and #31). Those are the feet that you use for very light fabrics to get a tiny hem. When you want help with some of the bigger fabrics or some of the more normal hems these wide hem feet are a perfect match.
