    I just ordered one. Hope I like it. Money back quarantee so I can always return it if I don't like. The videos look pretty slick and fool proof. Fool proof is a good thing.

    fool proof depends on the experience and skill of the one demonstrating it. I have watched several times demos and even bought one and was never able to do it as efficienty as the demonstrator. So plan on a long learning curve.

    What is a bias binder foot? The only bias binding I have made was with a Clover one.

    Which one did you buy? I bought the one that Brother recommends for my machine, its not at all what I expected, very limited on its abilities.

    I watched a video on You tube. Just put in bias binder foot tutorial. The one they had was for a Bernina, but the one I ordered looks exactly like it.

    It folds the binding and places it on the quilt as you sew. No pins . Video on You tube

    Well after I finish the quilt I am starting on now I have a break so I should have time to practice. Anything to make it easier.

    i have one for my Brother machine. It does work pretty well. Be sure to practice before you use it on an actual project to make sure you are happy with the look and have it adjusted the way you want.
    i usually don't use bias binding but I do use this foot when i do and have been mostly pleased. I'm not as happy with the corners as I would like to be. They'e OK, but not as neat as i would like.

    I wish there was one that was adjustable for my machine. I like my bindings a little wider than what this one allows.
