A blind stitch machine will only do the blind hem stitch, which is found on dresses, skirts, and trouser legs, and nothing else. The blind hemmer makes its stitch by moving the needle from side to side rather than up and down like a traditional sewing machine. A blind stitch is a sewing stitch that is made to be invisible on the right side and often nearly invisible on the wrong side. When connecting two folded edges together, blind stitching is advantageous since the thread is only visible when the folded cloth is taken away. This method allows a sewer to attach pockets, facings, and trims to a garment discreetly.
