    This is a good technique…thanks for demonstrating it so well! I have a rolled hemming foot, and I have not mastered it by any means…this is a great alternative.

    I know there are ways to make the foot easier-I have not mastered them either. I think by the time you get it to feed well through the foot, you could be done with the easy 3-pass method. Then there is the question of getting a continuous line with the foot-you gotta end and begin someplace.

    Thanks for the reminder! I learned this year’s ago from the alterations ladies at the store where i used to work.

    It’s been out there since dirt was new I think. For me sometimes, it’s “new” again when I rediscover a technique.

    This is the best way I’ve ever seen to do a narrow hem. I have never been able to use that foot and I’ve had one with every machine I’ve had for the past 45 years! Thanks a bunch for showing us this one!

    You know, I have several of the rolled hem feet for my Bernina, and I have trouble with them, too. I thought the whole point of having special presser feet was to make something EASIER. I didn’t even know there WAS a way to do a rolled hem without the goofy waffle cone feet. I’m going to try this next time — thanks!

      There are tricks to make using the rolled hem foot and if thy work, it’s a single pass instead of the 3 I talk about here. But the problem for me has always been this: so I get good at the rolled hem foot, but how do I finish the joining of the beginning and the end or do corners? No matter what, you will always have that issue with the foot.

    Thanks. I’m going to book mark this. I’ve been thinking of making a table cloth for my round table and was wondering how to do a rolled hem.
