    I've seen these attachments that attach both the front and back of double fold bias binding at the same time. Does anyone use one? Does it work?

    I bought a binder for my juki ddl 8700 and I haven't figured out how to use it. I found a good website that talked about using the elna attachment for quilt binding: http://elnalife.wordpress.com/2011/0...-quilt-binder/

    Does anyone know of a tutorial for juki attachments?

    check out the elna tutorial link I posted- they show how to deal with mitered corners and how to end it with the binding attachments.

    I paid $25 for mine through ebay (sewing machine supplier), I'll post a picture when I can. I know that it's going to be great if I can just figure out how to use it. ;-)

    I'm binding now and it takes me ~4 evenings to complete the binding of a quilt. Granted, it's enjoyable and relaxing, but sometimes I don't have 4 days to bind a quilt.
