I am curious about buying more feet for my Bernina serger 800dl. I only have the standard foot.

Does anyone have experience with the blind hem foot, have you used it on wovens, knits, fine fabrics.

I am considering my options with hemming and want to know if this foot is worth buying.

Any guidance is appreciated.

You can do a blind hem without a special foot. It's how you fold the fabric and set the tensions, and be sure to disengage the knife.

I think the sewing machine does a better blind hem.

I agree with threaddy - the sewing machine does a better stitch. The serger does a < where the sewing machine makes a - stitch to catch the garment. I have a blind stitch hem foot for my serger. Used it once and went back to the sewing machine.

I have this foot for my Bernina serger and never used it. I figure it would take too long to practice and get it right. I hem on the sewing machine or by hand.

I've got one for my Bernina and one for my Babylock. I don't like the look of either. I have a blindstitch machine for this but I would prefer the machine blind stitch over the serger blind stitch.

annenet, thank you so much, I am yet to even try the sm for a blindstitch.

I also have a blindstitch machine but I am lacking the space to have it permanently set up so that is why I am considering my options.

I've got one on a little shaker table my DFIL built for me. I don't have to move it thankfully.

The serger blindhem works well for knits.
