    Saw this on YouTube...Binding fast.

    I know this is mass production, but is there anything similar for domestic use? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sg49c..._order&list=UL

    Wow, I'm glad I'm not her, she probably does this day in and day out.

    Don't know if there is a domestic equivalent.
    Have a great day sewing and remember to "not sweat the small stuff"!!

    Mass produced quilts like that are the reason that we could never get what we have invested in a home made quilt. We spend hours making a quilt and they spend minutes....and make pennies.

    I enjoy making quilts, and find the sewing of the binding to be therapy for me.

    I would bet she can not stand to make them -

    Those feet only do single layers of fabric. I like my binding double layered.

    I reviewed the info on this machine again & looked closely at the picture. It appears that the binding ends are left open on the bottom of the item. Probably won't work at all. Sorry.

    This is a similar machine.

    No details as to whether it sews a single layer or double layer binding. No price either.

    I have carpal tunnel syndrome in both wrists. When I handsew binding on a lap quilt, even though I space it out over several days, I end up with not being able to close my hands, can't lift even a small pot, & taking Ibuprofen for a couple of days after the hand sewing. I am trying to figure out how to sew the double fold binding on by machine & make it look professional. Read into that...my seams aren't always as straight as I want them to be. I have tried the stitch in the ditch method & did not like it at all. Unfortunately, I am a little bit of a perfectionist. lol

    I will continue to follow this thread to find out if anyone can figure out what machine the girl is using. I think I can figure out how to double fold with the seam to the inside so that I could use one like this to do my binding & have it look good & be sturdy. I even think the girl might be using a specialty adapted carpet binding machine. The device on the bed of the machine does resemble the Martelli Binding System.

    Barb, I too have CTS. I use a tight elastic fingerless glove on my hands/wrists when I sew or hand stitch. Helps alot. Along with that I use Ibuprofen when I sew.

    Similar to these. There are many different kinds out there.

    It's not a machine but an attachment that you screw into the bed of your machine. I have the attachment and was going to take a pic of it but for the life of me I can't find it now It was a bit pricey but I was never able to make it feed 2 layers of fabric without it skewing the layers...I guess you could glue the edges together... If anyone gets one and can make it work, please do a tute on this.
