The binder – a lovely and wonderful gadget. it folds and stretch the binding for you, making beautiful finish for your garments. Is the binder really necessary?.. No, but have you once tried and figured it out you don’t want to sew without it
Does it fit my sewing machine?
Yes.. I often say that it fits almost all kind of brand (I haven’t tried all so I cant guarantee).
It suited for domestic sewing machines and coverstitch/coverlocks. NOT made bor overlock/serger.
Attach with tack-it “sticky stuff”
Mounting plate / attachment plate.. what is that and do I need it?
The plate is designed for attaching the binder to the machine with screws instead of tack-it. The plate is only for coverstitch/coverlock that have screw holes.
If you have Brothers topcover or Baby lock cover you dont need any extra plate, just screw the binder direct on the machine (screws comes with your machine)
What binder should I choose ?
At first, the different
Singlefold (35 mm)
The binding folds in three layers, double on top and single on the back. Leaving a “raw” edge on the back. Using knit binding this is no problem.
I use this to all my clothes, to me and my child. Good for press fasteners.
Doubble fold (48 mm)
The binding folds in four layers, doubble on both sides. So front and back looks the same. Nice for baby blankets etc. This also works for bias binding.
Single fold with piping (35 + 25 mm)
A single fold binder with a twist. This also comes with a small folder for 20mm binding. Making a decoration/passpoal. This binder can be used like a normal singlefold without the piping.
