How to Work Binding Around Curves or Corners - Using a Binder Attachment
This video shows how to work binding around a curve or corner when using a standard feed binder attachment. Working binding around a corner using a binder attachment is not as difficult as it seems. If you create a gentle curve at the fabrics corner it can be turned slowly as you feed the fabric into the binder slot. This means you can continue to sew the binding on without stopping or cutting of the binding. If you have a 90 degree turn in your fabric you must cut the binding at the corner and feed the opposite side binding over the top of the other leg of binding.
