How do you sew in the drapery weight chain into the bottom of a sheer
curtain?  I think this is called a Euro hem.

Thanks in advance.

Serge it, using a piping foot, or better yet, a beading foot, just like
sewing strings of beads on...  Like this:

Are there any illustrations on line that show this technique? I have not
been able to find anything.

You could do it with a serger:

Or just slip the chain through the finished hem and anchor
at each end.

I've never sewn in chains.  Usually I just position them in the hem and
tack them strategically from the wrong side so they can be easily
removed for laundering or dry cleaning.  Never heard it called a
"Euro-hem" either.
