I wanted to share something I discovered today when I needed to hem some pants using my CoverPro 1000cpx.

I took the guide off the Type 2 hem guild and used it as my seam guild.

Here is a link to a page on my blog with the details.

Enjoy!
~Kevin

Thanks, Kevin! I have two brackets like that for different sewing machines. I'm going to try one on my CoverPro.

Great idea! Be sure and post the results with us after you've given the brackets a try.

I tried the guide I used on my regular sewing machine and it worked great. See the images below:

The hem guide and aligning for a 1/2 inch seam....

The backside results

The frontside results

Thank you so much for this tip Kevin! I was trying to decide if this hem guide would work for me as I prefer to fold hem myself.

I don't have a hem guide with my other machine so I'll go ahead and order one of these.
