Re: Binding Foot or Binder Attachment

Maria Morrow
 

Thank you Cheryl!  I make a lot of quilts, and binding is my least favorite part. So when I can, I’ll watch the videos and have my dealer demo before I decide. If practice means I could cut the time down, I may do it. A king takes me 4-6 hours all in.

do you think the foot is just as good as the "medical device?"  Do they each need a different plate?

So what happens at the corners with the foot?

Binding Foot or Binder Attachment

Cheryl Paul
 

Hi,

I just want to point out that there are 2 different tools to do binding with our Janome machines.  One is the binder foot; and the other the binder attachment, which includes a foot in the blister pack of several things like screws and 2 main pieces.  The attachment costs a lot of money while the foot is probably less than ½ that cost.  The little foot as I understand it is for making or using bias binding and also will apply it to the edge of fabric for a nice finished edge.  The binder attachment, which as our Janome Educator says looks like a medical device that doctors use for female medical examinations.

I don't have the little foot and our dealer says they are on "back order", so I'm waiting to get one.  I do have the binder attachment, (in fact more than one; as the bobbin cover plate was changed and Janome didn't provide just that particular part and I changed from a 7mm machine to a 9mm machine and the foot didn't fit anymore).  It isn't difficult to use, but it does take practice and I've discovered more practice than I did for a project, so I used the old method for "the quilt" I made.  It is a good thing that your dealer wants you to come in and try the attachment.  He/She realize that many folks purchase these expensive items, then are not happy with the learning curve required to get used to using it and perhaps return them for a refund AND the package is opened and would be difficult to resell.  

The next thing about the binder attachment is "finishing" the binding at the end of the quilt.  I struggle with this in the traditional binding method, so imagine how I'm doing with the new.  I've asked Jim and Diane, IF they have the time to make a video for the footbook and machine (My 15000/My 12000) app's as well.  These last 2 app's are very specific to those machines, but contain valuable information that can be used for other Janome models as well, if you can adapt to a bit of change, ie:  where things appear on the machine screen - no embroidery, etc.  

Another thing I do and that is watch as many different videos I can to learn as much as I can when trying new techniques or refreshing one I may not have used often or for a long while.  Sometimes a different person presenting just uses different wording or pictures that makes the "bells ring" for me.

Whatever, you do, don't let this device intimidate you.  It is a fun attachment to use, even if it is expensive.  Remember that trying it out on something like placemats is a good place to learn as you have 4 corners on probably 4 placemats to get the hang corners, as that is the biggest challenge.  Our Janome Educator, that taught us how to use it told us that she can bind a fairly large quilt in 45 minutes - I'd like to watch her to see if it's a "fish" story - you know how the fish caught gets bigger in every telling of the same story.

Cheryl - Saskatoon 

PS:  The foot looks bigger than the attachment, but it is not,  it very much matches the size of your other sewing feet.  The attachment is much larger than the pictures shows, if you are comparing them below.

If it's the quilt binder that's being talked about, here's one video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=8&v=HPOfVXC3pVw&feature=emb_logo
When I asked my dealer about it he said that he'd want me to  come in for a lesson on it before he sold it to me.
Since then I think someone said it only gives a single fold binding and that's not what I'm looking to do.  Lately I've either used a decorative stitch to bind (mostly the small wavy one) or a binding that has faux piping.

I used water solvable  stabilizer sandwich.   Once the lace was completed, soak in water to remove stabilizer    You can use coffee or tea to tint is necessary

Have any of you “made” lace? I have several lace embroidery designs and have done FSL ornaments but never lace to attach to a garment.

I would really appreciate some insights, help, etc. if you have done this and attached it to a dress

Joyce do you have a pic of the lace? I have plenty of lace fabric that are designer laces for sale. We might be able to set something similar and all you would need to do is sew it on. Here are just a few samples of them

I use it and I love it. The fabric should be cut no wider than 2 ½ inches wide  I think the instructions recommend 2 inches maximum, but I have used 2 ½ with  no bad effects

Thanks, Jim.  At this stage I'm reluctant to do ANYTHING that could mess things up. 
The only time I've ever gotten a virus was when my grandchildren were little and my granddaughter liked fairy books.  My daughter and I were on the phone and I was at the computer and wondered if there were any fairy books written for boys.  Now I think for a moment before I google anything. :)
I also only use Windows Defender after suffering for years with paid programs that made my computer run slowly.  That's all I've used for over 10 years now.  As the computer dropped the network when it (mistakenly) didn't feel it was safe, I think I'm okay.  And everything's backed up on two external hard drives and my desktop computer. 
I did go to that site and they detected my address.  That's as far as I dared to go. :)
Thanks again,
Ceil
