    Janome bias binding tool

    Perhaps it's just me but this tool seems to make more work then just binding the old fashioned way. I have no idea what it costs but I'm thinking rather expensive.

    Depending on the model, it goes for $150.-$250. And I'm with you, more trouble and the end results doesn't do it for me.

    Everything looks easy with a MINI quilt, can't imagine using it on a real quilt. Our antique machines always came with the binding attachment, for a narrower finished binding, have used mine a few times and it is a simple attachment. But they make things now way more complicated and for a LOT of $$$, simple is better for me.
    I will keep doing bindings the old way and more than likely much quicker.

    I love my Janome, but this seems terribly complicated to me....and expensive!! I'll stick to the old fashioned way of doing it.

    Oh man- I have to look for an old machine that has this attachment. Or find one for my Brother machine or Bernina that is cheap.
    I dislike doing binding.

    I bought one....it has paid for itself many times over.....there is a learning curve, but once you catch on, it is so very fast and easy....does perfect corners and is all done by machine....I love it and would hate to be without it....

    Ebay has a version of this tool starting at $17.99. I've always been a bit of a snob about hand sewing the finishing binding. But since I've starting making lap quilts for the veterans at our local VA Long Term Care facility I machine sew both sides of the binding. It just goes faster. And they get used a lot so the machine stitches hold up much better in the long run. I've gotten pretty good at it so the looks are not interfered with. In fact, for those give-away items I might invest in this tool.

    I'm still deciding. The price is a little steep, but I like the idea.

    It might work just fine, like the demo shows, however, I think I'll pass and do my binding the old fashioned way, as this tool looks too complicated for me.
