    Binder presser foot

    Hello,
    Has anyone used a binder presser foot to attach bias tape? I just found out that Juki makes one for my Exceed F600 machine but I am wondering if it works.

    Thank you, Marilee

    Do you mean quilt binding? I never found a binder attachment that works well for quilts. They can be useful for applying bias tape to garment edges (such as the armholes on a child's dress).

    I've used the Viking foot to attach bias tape, but it was not on a quilt. I don't think it would handle that thickness.

    i bought one for my Viking and used it once. I liked the fact that it fed the bias tape through evenly so the the stitching was even on the front and back, but i did have trouble keeping the quilt sandwich in the bias tape and i had no clue as to what to do once you reached the corner ( major problem!! ). There were NO instructions with it. I havent tried it again. Maybe it takes practice?
