Binder Attachments for Sewing Machine

Binder attachments make dressing up and finishing off the edges of canopies, dodgers, window covers, zipper flaps, awnings, enclosures, and biminis faster and much easier. Binders automatically guide binding tape into place and fold it over the edge of the fabric while sewing it in place.

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.

I am making a cockpit cover for the first time and have watched several Sailrite videos. I will be using this attachment in this process. To be truthful I haven't used this yet but I'm excited to try it. We have an RV and there are definitely items that I make that I have struggled with to put binder on so I have confidence that this will make my life easier.

Update: Well, I've had a chance to use the binder attachment. I "love it!" It fits perfect on my Pfaff 1245 machine. It's very easy to install and very easy to set up. The videos I watched were also very helpful in demonstrating how to sew with it. I will definitely share this new found tool with my friends.

After a little tap and die work on my 111W, my 1" Swing Away Binder works very well. I was amazed by the way it worked and the 'professional' grade look it gave to the final product. I would highly recommend it to anybody who wants a professional looking finished product.

Works Great!

1 inch binder works great. Hope to order 2 inch one and a few more items when Canadian dollar picks up a bit. Love your marine catalogue and hope to get that also.Have learned so much from this catalogue.....thanks again

Excellent Attachment

This attachment works great. It speeds up the process and it allows for a very straight and uniform stitch. Of course it fits on our LS-1 but it also fits on our Consew 206RB-6.

My new favorite tool

With a very little practice it works great! Made the mistake of buying another brand first, looked almost identical but it just didn't have the quality of this binder. Really speeds up binding edges. As with anything, you have to use it within its intended limits; one thing I wanted it for ended up being too thick and too tight of curves for it, but everything else I've used it on so far has been easy and fast. Yes, fun even!

If anyone was wondering if it works with vinyl, it does. I bought it for binding clear and marine or upholstery vinyl with strips of the marine or upholstery vinyl, and it does just fine. Thank you Sailrite for maintaining your quality!

Works as advertised


Most of my sewing is repairing, inventing or extending the life of a well worn item.

One of the items this binder and binding was useful for is to make cheesecloth sacks that can be filled with ice-melt and tossed on roofs to help melt ice-dams.

not happey


not happy with the binder
