Binding quilts

I am sooo sick with a sore throat/cold/fatigue/muscle aches I have not been up to anything. I've been on the couch watching Sex & the City dvds, and The Other Boleyn Girl. However, I DID use the lavender eye pillow my friend gave me last year when I lay down for a nap yesterday. Thanks Jean! I got upright for about an hour, late yesterday afternoon. I was up at 5:30 this morning because my throat hurt too much to get back to sleep. Pity me, please.

One of the sewing machines I have is an industrial with a binding attachment.  The Bindall.

I buy precut binding 2" wide (from the USA of course - nothing is available here in Canada). This does a very serviceable job on quilts that are not necessarily heirloom, but will be used and loved.

As a personal testimonial, this binding is on my very first longarm (actually shortarm in '99) quilted bed quilt. It has been through the washer and dryer a zillion times. It's fine.


  1. Can you tell me where you buy parts for your machine. I have one like it that I need a part for and can't find it anywhere. Thank you

    1. I cannot reply directly to you. However, try contacting a service person who looks after industrial sewing machines. If there is any kind of sewing company near you (clothing, bedding, etc) they could tell you who they use.

  2. This lady is amazing! So generous with her time and knowledge to help those of us starting out and struggling. Thank you for all your help.


Please - share your wisdom...
