Vintage meets modern.

Vintage + Modern

As it happens, the new Juki is a low shank machine which means that all those old Greist attachments work on Juki.

I need to do a narrow hem on the black circle skirt. Although I was able to get several of the Greist attachments to work on my other machines, I could never get the narrow hemmer to work. But it works perfectly on the Juki!

Greist narrow hemmer attachment

Because the narrow hemmer is so small, the hem needs to be prepped a little so that the fabric rolls smoothly over the cone that rolls the hem over before it gets stitched. The seams pose a bit of a problem because they tend to get caught up in the cone.

And unrelated to this- I finished the self-drafted skirt, but no pictures just yet.
