You can use your binding foot to attach bias tape and quilt binding*.
It lines up the needle to get a straight, perfect stitch.
Even better, you don’t have to pin the binding all the way around whatever you’re sewing before you attach it.
You just feed your binding into the binding foot as you feed in the fabric. It's Sew Easy!
If the binding foot doesn't fit your machine please contact us.
*Note: This binding foot works best for sewing projects with 1-2 layers of lightweight or medium-weight cotton fabric.
It can be used for binding thin quilts with low-loft battings which are flatter and thinner (and NOT with battings with high loft, which are thick and fluffy). Because you DO need to feed the whole quilt sandwich into the slot of your binding foot. See photo.
It is usually easier to insert everything when the foot is not attached to the machine yet.
Feed your bias tape into the binding foot. There are two small plastic tabs, noted above, to hold the binding tape edges.
Attach the binding foot to your machine.
Adjust the thumb screw near the metal part of the binding foot to set the side-to-side positioning of the binding relative to your needle.
Align the needle where you want. You can place the needle close to the edge of the binding foot or inwards a little bit.
