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.

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.
