    I can get the front to go on right but I can not seem to get it to go on right on the back. It gets wrinkles and the corners, I really mess up. Anyone have an easy way to explain so us newbies can make a good binding? Thanks for any help, Tammy

    Eddie talks in his binding tutorial about sewing the entire binding on the machine. It can be done and look good enough to win prizes.

    I'm going to check this out and see if I can get hints for mine, too.

    GO TO ELEANOR BURNS SITE AND CLICK ON TELEVISION AND VIDEOS THEN CLICK ON BINDING TUTORIAL. THIS REALLY HELPED ME A LOT.
