    Auto Bias tape maker.

    Could be very useful. Intriguing what the quilt world is bringing to home sewers from the industrial sewing world.

    And of course you need a gadget that will cut the bias strips for you.



    :D

    Cost isn't too extreme. Retail is $99 for the maker and $79 for the stripper.

    I can see a guild buying those and making them available to their members. I sure don't need to invest in them!

    If you look in the centre, it is just the same as the clover gadget for rolling the edges in, all you need to do is lay your iron on and pull the tape through and tah dah your done!! :wink:

    I have one of the Clover bias tape makers, it does a good job. This one from what I read about it creases the folds the same way purchased bias tape folds are set and does it in seconds. Neat!

    Hmm, perhaps an investment .. one person buy it and then make bias bindings for others commercially.. might pay for itself fairly quickly.

    Any one familiar with Lollypops pre made bindings? I think this is the machine they use.

    Okay I admit it I am a gadget person. I can't find this particular binding gadget - can you please post a link or tell me how to find it on line.
    Thanks

    It was presented at Quilt Market. Shops can oder it from a distributor and depending on demand it could take a few months for it to be available.

    Here's my thoughts on the cutter...it will be interesting (unless you don't care) how large of a piece of fabric (as in width) you can use. On the wool cutters, you have to cut and rip a piece and then run it thru...otherwise your fabric pulls it w/the weight to not make a straight cut. And, there sometimes is a bit of throw away waste when doing that. Just something to think about..:)But, then again...who can't love to play w/new sewing toys?!LOL Skeat

    I agree with Izy, looks just like the Clover bia folding tools. I have couple of the Clover ones and thought at the time they were pricey. These new gadgets look really neat and you won the Lotto and had extra coins to spend. So it's back to the old way of measure, cut, etc.

    Is this gadget limited to one width of bias tape? It looks as if the area where the strip is will take a wider strip, but the part where the strip is folded would only be one size. Does anyone have a link for more information please?
