Re: Janome 9mm Quilt Binder Set

When I mentioned to my dealer that I was interested in buying the binder for the 15000 he didn't sell it to me but told me that the next time I make an appointment to come in (I live almost 3 hours away) to let him know in advance that I want the binder and he'll have the shop's expert teach me how to use it.  He says it's easy once you know the tricks and so I'm hoping that I can learn and get it this spring.  It's been on my list for a while and it's good to know that it can work well and be a time saver.  My hands no longer appreciate sewing on bindings which I did for the first several quilts I made. Also as I'm unlikely to ever enter a show (this will NEVER happen), why do this?  I did find that if you make a binding with a contrasting piping, you can successfully do the whole thing by machine, and I've gotten great results sewing the binding to the back and using the serpentine stitch on the front.
