The Hump Jumper is a sewing notion designed to help you with hemming jeans, thick or pleated drapes, valances, or any bulky material aiding your sewing machine to get up over the seam “Hump” Invented by Sandra Newman.
“The Hump Jumper, the bright yellow sewing notion with the catchy odd name, solves the frustration of stitching over the “hump” — those places were varying thicknesses of fabric can throw a perfectly good seam out of line. Sandra Newman, owner of the SN Designs Co, invented the one and only Hump Jumper, the sewing notion for solving those frustrating sewing problems since 1986! The “hump” frustration is created when the presser foot is tilted out of the horizontal position necessary for a smooth, even feed. When the Hump Jumper is placed under the back of the presser foot, abutting the “hump,” the back of the presser foot is lifted keeping the presser foot horizontal. This allows for an even and continuous feed, eliminating skipped stitches. Sewers know “humps:” a zipper at the bodice, belt loops, pant hems, drapery and craft projects: places where sewing thin bumps into sewing thick. A bent piece of yellow plastic, the Hump Jumper is available in two thicknesses, 1/16th and 1/8th. Why two widths? Corners – stitch to the corner, lift the presser foot, keep the needle down, rotate the fabric 900, place the 1/16th under the presser foot, drop the foot and continue to stitch; sew a perfect corner. When attempting to sew over a bulky spot at the beginning of a seam, place the 1/8th Hump Jumper under the presser foot on top of fabric with the needle down, lower the foot, then sew. This step will work with seam starts on sheer fabric using the 1/16th to stop “bunching up” at fabrics‘ edge, and the bulky spot when beginning to sew a patch pocket; just put the Hump Jumper under the presser foot before you start sew…” ⇨ If you’d like to read more click here.
