    Binder attachment thingy...

    during a shop hop on Friday I saw an industrial machine with a foot attachment that automatically took 2 1/4 strip binding, pulled it thru a funnel like attachment, folded it perfectly, threaded it under the foot to be sewn front AND back at the same time... This lady literally binded a king size quilt in less than 5 min... I WANT THAT !!!!! anyone have any idea if there is such a thing for NON-commercial machine?? -preferably a PFAFF ..

    Man I never have seen anything like that , but would like to. I want that also. How big was it? Look forward to hearing if anyone else knows about this. Probably cost a lot. Thanks for asking. BrendaK

    Sounds wonderful doesn't it. I've never seen anything like that in the Pfaff book of feet, but then who know. I'll be anxious to find out this answer to this.

    Martelli makes one, it's called the Kwik Bind System and it's just shy of $150. I know it is for 1/2" as opposed to 1/4" binding but you see both sides at the same time. It also comes with a DVD as well as written instructions. I don't have one but have seen it demoed and know people who use it on their machines and love it. As far as I know, it can be used with pretty much any machine.

    I have seen one of these and they can work on any machine, I haven't figured out how it wold go around the corners of the quilt.

    I have an industrial singer that is
    only for bindings and it has the attachment ...doing the corners has to be rounded off or stopped and restarted ...only way possible...I dont like that so I nowadays do my bindings on regular machines
    A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort :lol:

    I saw one a few years ago on a Bernina, it was really cool but as someone else said, I have no idea how it would go around the corners.

    I have a binding foot for my Brother, but I haven't mastered using it, and you have to pre iron your strips.

    if one makes LOTS of quilts, $150 doesn't sound like much. I don't make that many, though. And I actually like the binding process
