This was a very professional video. Very helpful, especially when hemming a long skirt.
I see you are using a walking foot. Do you generally use it for most fabrics? I have used one and find it works pretty well.
Appreciated how you gave your instructions with comprehensive examples. EXCELLENT VIDEO!
You really need to give product names or links, please.
Thank you! well done!
That is such of a cool tip by using a tag board!
Thank you so much. I enjoyed your instruction. Helpful, informative, clear and every minute worth it. I swear you had an editor.
Super helpful tag board. Thanks for the tip!!!
Thank you. I learned some things here 🙂
Is that a cordless iron?
i want to hem a crop top but I don't want to fold it twice because it'll show too much of my skin
I am new to sewing, made a garment but then did not know how to sort the hems. I so appreciate your help here, thank you so much.
Links to products?
very nice –thank you p.g.
What thread do you use for knits?
Great tips: tag boards, fusing tape, and utility stitch. Awesome! 😀 Thank-you for sharing your knowledge.
I appreciate your video on how to hem this type of fabric. Thank you again. 😊
Thank you so much for your help on to hem knits. You are a very good teacher. You seem very patient and understanding.as a teacher.
Great instructional video, thanks!
This was very helpful, thanks a bunch.
Very useful information. Especially for beginners.
Do I need to sew the hem down after glueing?
I, too am a serger educator. I waited until 10:20 into your video to officially give it a "LIKE"! I liked all of your techniques but I was waiting for you to mention the dedicated Coverstitch Machine. If one works with knits often a Coverstitch machine is a definite must-have. I had sergers which could be converted from serger to Coverstitch but it was such a hassle. Buy the Coverstitch only machine! Sometimes it is less expensive for a person to purchase a Coverstitch only machine and a serger than to purchase one machine than can be converted from one to the other.
I was rather disappointed with this video. It showed three different types of glue to use without providing a definitive answer as to which is best for the sewer who may only need to hem a variety of knits but only occasionally. I also noticed that a walking foot was used but not specified, only mentioned in passing. When the effect of the initial tape was shown in comparison to the sprayed on & the sewn on tape, it appeared that they had both been ironed after hemming onto the knit, yet the first one wasn't. It would have been fairer comparison if it had also been ironed after hemming. I also wondered if the glues or tapes were stable enough not to need a further machined hem as it wasn't made clear in the video. I have also noticed that many glues & tapes tend to deteriorate if not used in fairly soon after purchase, so to have to purchase 3 different types of glues just to work out which was best seemed a little over the top to me, unless one uses such tapes regularly. However I liked the part where a light card was used to set an initial hem on the knit using the iron, but I wondered if it would be better to sew a fine lace onto the edge of the hem, then either hand sew it, or try using a hem stitch, or the single row of stitches. I intend to try each sewing method minus the glues & see what provides the least conspicuous but neatest hem. I doubt that it would take much longer to hand stitch, or even fine stitch using a hemming foot than it would to mess around with sewing on glue tape, then still sewing another hem on the edge of that.
Thank you so much that’s very helpful and useful.
I see that you are using a walking foot. That makes it much easier than an ordinary foot, but I don't think you mentioned it at the start? Nice tips. thank you.
That's great information. I wish you could have addressed a round hem. Not for me, but I know someone who had a terrible time hemming a cape. I know you can't address every problem. Thanks.
Very very helpful Thank you
Useful information on both product and considerations such as fabric bulk – all presented at digestible pace. I appreciate that the thread contrasted with the fabric making it easier to see.
Excellent video very informative!! Thank you
I have the adhesive spray and let me tell ya that stuff is so difficult to get off things and sprays everywhere. I like it because it holds up very good and seals like fabric, shoe soles so fast even arts and craft. Another prblem I had was after I bought the product and used it a few times the glue dried on it and now I have to throw a new can in the garbage.
Thank you this great
What type of foot are you using?
Can Linda Lee get her own TV show? I loved this video and she was great at explaining everything!
You're so excellent at explaining.
You did not say anything about stitch size. Your stitches look very small.

Excellent lesson in hemming knits. Thank you!
Wow this was absolutely great to listen too. You are so interesting and so knowledgeable. And you are a very beautiful lady . Thank you so much for your efforts in helping us sort out how to go about hemming knit fabric. Have a nice day
What brand fusible web tape is that?
How to hem without a serger. First 30 seconds, "if you want it to lay flat, you're going to want to serge it". I DON'T HAVE A SERGER, THAT'S WHY I'M WATCHING THIS
Do you have to sew with every method or just with the third hem tape? I don't own a sewing machine and my sewing skills are mild. I would like to hem my pants if I can just use the tape stuff only and not sew.
Great information thanks Linda!
Awesome video! I like it
