Re: Single Thread Portable or Power Stand BlindStitch Hemming Machines:
When I pull the stitching out, several stitches unravel along with it. Is there a way to tack the stitches to prevent unraveling?
Jenna, there are several ways of securing a blind hem stitch at the end of a seam. The easiest way is to sew over and beyond the end of a seam, especially if hemming a tubular item like pants. When you sew over previous stitching it helps to lock the stitches in.
Before you remove fabric from the end of the machine feeder, turn the hand wheel clockwise to swing the needle all the way to the left position in the needle channel which will help secure the thread and stitch in place. Then quickly pull or jerk the fabric hem from behind the feeder which will break the thread and tie off the chain stitch so that it will not continue to unravel. It takes some practice because you may have to use the knee lever or hand wheel to position or release the fabric if it is not already at the end of the feeder.
You can also turn the hand wheel counterclockwise at the end of the seam (like reverse stitching but no formation) just to hide the end stitches, or you can manually weave the unraveled thread back into the chainstitch with a seaming needle.

I bought a Tacsew Blind hemmer from AllBrands in October, 1999. I was leary of using the credit card on the Internet so I called the 800 number. It was simple fast (yay Melanie) and I am very happy with my purchase. I should also mention I am Canadian and even with the exchange and shipping, I still saved a lot of money! I'm now interested in a babylock serger... Thanks!

I wanted to thank you for the very professional way you handled our order. It is nice that someone selling over the Internet provides this kind of personal service. We received our TacSew 500 in 3 days and it is fantastic. We had a little trepidation when we ordered because it is a major purchase for us. Heidi's little sewing room consists of 2 sergers, 2 Bernina sewing machines and an old Domestic we picked up at a garage sale for tacking and straight line stitching. This machine has saved, already, a great deal of time because it does a beautiful job hemming. Still have to learn to run it for sheers but made tiebacks and they look good. Thank you for your quick service and for the needles you put in at the last minute that I had forgotten to order.

Help!
I am breaking a lot of needles and the tension is getting too tight on its own while stitching and causing the thread to break. I am learning the machine for two weeks. Is it so sensitive too wools, cottons, and fleece that this would make such a major difference in the stitching - breaking needles, breaking thread? Kay

It may not be tension that is causing the problem with your portable blindstitch. If you have broken needles it has probably left some needle burrs in the thread and needle path that need polishing off with fine emory cloth (crocus) before sewing again.

Start with a new LWx6T needle without thread or fabric. Watch the needle as you turn the hand wheel. If there is needle deflection, reduce the penetration dial until there is no needle movement. If there is needle deflection caused by burrs, they must be polished off. Check the looper tip and two arms for any needle burrs and polish off. If there is needle deflection caused by the needle track lifting the needle, lower the track very slightly with the screws on the side of the black metal bracket above the needle.

Finally, Back off on the tension dial and retighten while you are sewing with a light strong thread and light to medium weight fabric, until you get the correct tension without loops. If tension is too tight it will push the thread up so it is not all the way down between the tension discs where it belongs. JMD

I'm absolutely happy with this machine. It sews all kinds of fabrics, is a powerful reliable machine as manufacturing, but it is a small and compact machine. I recommend.

Charlene, Tennessee
I received it in a very timely manner. Needles came next day. Price was also very reasonable. It wasn't much more than a different brand machine I purchased 15 yrs ago made with plastic outer cover. I'm extremely satified with my purchase.

Aloma, Wyoming
I was very pleased with your service!!! I ordered my blindhemmer on a Friday and the following Thursday it was on my doorstep! I had expected it to be a much longer wait. I will definetly be a return customer!!!

Lynn, Tennessee

Pamela, Florida
I had a couple of operational questions about my new Tacsew, so I called customer service. The lady that fielded my call referred me to the person within your company with knowledge of the machine and gave me his direct dial number. I was delighted that John called me back within 5 minutes and gave me the answers to my questions! I highly reccomend Allbrands and will always look for it as my first source for products within its product line.

Christopher, Penn

Everything was a pleasurable experience with you guys. I now can speed manufacture my sheers like never before! Thank you.
