How to Work Binding Around Corners or Curves
Our short video, “How to Work Binding Around Corners or Curves” is a great demonstration video for installing binding around a corner when using a standard feed binder attachment. Installing binding around a corner is not as difficult as it seems. For gentle curves, turn the fabric slowly while feeding into the binder slot. For 90-degree turns, cut the binding at the corner and sew down with one side overlapping the other.
Our Sailrite® Swing-Away Binder is a practical, easy-to-use sewing accessory. You can easily add this product to your Ultrafeed® LS-1 or LSZ-1 Sewing Machine to make your next project a little bit easier. But how? The Sailrite Swing-Away binder automatically guides and folds binding tape into place over the edge of your fabric as you sew. These handy products are available in 3/4", 1", 1-1/4" and 2" sizes to help you tackle a number of binding projects.
