In addition to your long-arms, do any of you have "binding machines?" It seems like almost every customer call I get they are wanting the bindings put on AND finished. I know that we, for an extra charge, can sew the binding on using our long-arm but, I'm not aware of a technique to finish the binding, with a slip-stitch, on the long-arm and I'm not willing, for any price, to sew a binding on by hand because I hate doing my own projects by hand. I know there are binding machines but, I've never seen one nor have any clue how it works. It sounds like I'm actually losing customers because I won't be returning back to them a fully completed, ready to use, quilt. If you know anything about binding machines, I'd love to hear your imput.

I can't help you with a binding machine -- haven't heard of one, but it does seem odd that so many are asking for the binding to be put on. Are you sure they want it completely done or just sewn on so they can hand sew it to the back?

No, send it to me! It's the only handwork I get to do anymore. There is a machine that I've only seen that takes a strip, double folds it and sews it on by machine. But I personally don't like the look bbecause you can see the stitching, AND there is only one thickness of fabric on the edge. It's the sort of thing you would see on an imported "quilt" at your big-box linen stores-ICKY!!!!

Sara, Yes to both of your questions. They want the binding sewn on and the slip stitching done to finish. Yes, they are telling me the gal they have had do quilts in the past have done it all for them. She is not the friendliest of long-armers but, I'm planning to stop in and hopefully visit with her as to how she is getting it done.

I have an attachment for my DSM called "Kwik Bind." This takes a strip of fabric and folds it as it feeds through your sewing machine. I hate it and probably won't use it again. It is plastic and the fabric doesn't feed smoothly so you get skipped stitches and a real mess. The stitching does show on both sides of the quilt so it definitely is not what you want to use on your better quilts/show quilts. I tried using it on 4 charity quilts I did this fall and ended up having to sew over most of the stitching to correct it or even rip the entire binding off and replace it. I probably could have finished the binding by hand faster:mad: (To be fair, I have heard from some people who have this attachment and really like it.)

I have a lot of customers that want that done also, I don't encourage it but it's a good money maker if they insist. They usually bring the binding prepared, if I have to do it I have a flat charge for cutting the binding. I have a charge per foot to machine sew to the front of the quilt and they hand finish. I charge the same per foot charge if they want it completely machine stitched front and back. If they want it hand sewn to the back, the charge is double per foot and that usually discourages them and they do the hand sewing. If they still want me to do it I will, but I set the expectations for finishing so it doesn't make me crazeee. I have some customers that I know I am going to machine stitch the binding to ALL their quilts, and these are the customers that are giving me 7-8 quilts in a 10 week period so I'm not going to say 'No' and I'm making addt'l $$.

I have a binding machine I use it for the utility quilts. I wouldn't recommend it for a really nice quilt but every day utility is fine. I have a taksew machine with binder attachment. I think with nice oak table and machine /binder it was 1,000 or a bit under. I really don't remember exactly right now. You can find used ones that will work just fine for this. It kills my hands to sew on by hand. I only do it for my nice quilts / wall hangings ect. Do a search on ebay also. You can use any DMS or get an industrial machine. Juki makes tacsew also. Both are great.

When I bought my first longarm machine, I also bought a binding machine, it cost a little over $1,000.00 US I have lots of different attatchment for different size finished binding and interchangable feet to convert it to a normal sewing machine. It has all the features, dual spool holders, knee lift, even an overhead adjustable light..... And there it sits, and sits, and sits, the binding does not look good no matter what attatchment I use and all my clients that what binding done ask for it to be machine done on one side and hand stitched on the other. Before you invest any money in a binding machine that is going to sit in a corner waiting to be sold, check your market of quilters you may find that they too will not like the look that a binding machine adds to the finished quilt. I have hired a binder, she loves the work and all my clients are more then happy with the finished product. I have even had clients bring older quilts just for the binding to be done. Good Luck, I hope it all works out well for you;)

I am in total agreement with Sue!! I also bought an industrial binding machine that cost me almost $1500 about 6 years ago - it sounds exactly like the one Sue had but she bargained a better price than I did :(LOL!!!

I used my binding machine twice and then it sat unused for well over a year... until I finally sold it for less than 1/2 of what I paid just to get it out of my way!! I absolutely HATED the way the binding looked-- far too much to send out any quilts bound with it!!!

I personally do not like the stitches showing on both sides of the binding - To me they stick out like sore thumbs!! However, I do know some people who can use their domestic machine to completely sew on bindings that look wonderful and you can't see the stitches without very close inspection... Sadly, I am NOT one of these talented people.

I do NOT enjoy doing the hand stitching of the binding- Even on my own quilts, I dread it... so I charge way too much for this service in hopes that no one will take me up on it! I actually tell clients, "Anyone would be crazy to pay me to do their binding at my prices!!" LOL!! Unfortunately, I still have a few people who want it done at any price- In the rare case that I do agree, I will sew on the binding, but I will not hand-stitch it to the back. They can either do the handwork themselves or I have 2 other ladies who actually like doing bindings. I previously had these ladies do it for me directly... but got tired of the additional efforts it took to take the quilts to them, or wait until one could come to my house, or just waiting at all on anything---- I really have no patience--- Can you tell?? LOL!!!

As a side-note, the longarmer who bought my binding machine absolutely LOVES it- especially at the price she bought it for!! She says her clients are happy just to get the quilt finsihed and don't care if the stitches show on both sides.... and she makes a nice profit on this service!

Sue is right on the money when she says to check your local market to see if this type of binding is widely accepted... because that is going to be the deciding factor of whether the binding machine is a good business investment or not.

Ditto to everything Sue said about hiring - we have also hired a binder - she loves to do the hand work - loves the income and does a beautiful job of hand binding. She likes to cut her own binding because depending on the quilt she will cut it either 2 1/4" or 2 1/2". Usually takes her about a week to do one or two quilts. If you really hate the work - don't turn it away - find someone in your area who is willing to do it and make sure they do a nice job - - - or send it to me - Lois would love to do it and she's very very very very reasonable - $35 for a queen and she cuts the fabric, sews it by machine and hand sews - worth the shipping to have it done here. Good luck to you.

Not too many nice things said about binding machines but I just purchased one. Of course it is also an industrial sewing machine so it will have other purposes. I won't know until I have a chance to use it. Not sure I will use it with any of my smaller quilts until I've played with it.

I can still attach binding with it just as I do with my domestic machine so it won't really matter to me if I dont like the way it binds. I just didn't want to wear out my Bernina 200 doing so many projects. Also my Mom and Sis come to help me sometimes and this will give them something to work on. My MOM gets dizzy with my modern machines and usually wants to piece with my featherweight which stitches beautifully. She gave it to me when I was Nine years old and I've been using it every since.

When it arrives I'll let you know. I am hoping it will bind placemats, pot holders and such but either way I'm excited about having a tough industrial machine for items I plan to sale. Uitility items that is. It will be another week before it arrives.

I am brushing up my quilting skills by making lap quilts for nursing homes. I don't have the time to finish the binding by hand and am seriously considering the Bernina binding feet attachments. My dealer does NOT recommend them but elsewhere on the Internet I see instructions for them that sound like they really do work. The downside is that they won't handle binding quite as wide as I'd like it, but at this point time and overall uniform decent appearance is more important.

I have one of these...and you are right its not a very wide binding. The only things I would say is that first you will need to use an ultra thin batting...and secondly to round off the corners. I know that the instructions say its easy to do the mitered corner, well let's just say....THEY TOLD A BIG FIB...its not as easy to use as they claim. I have successfully used it on small wall hangings and such, but only with the verrrrrrrrrry thin batting.

I find this tool difficult to use also. However with that said I find that if I stich 1/8 inch around and flatten the outer edge the binding goes on more smoothly. I use it on small items like burping pads and pot holders. I have to go slow, but yes it isn't as simple as they make it seem.

There is a binding foot out there that I understand used 2" binding. It folds it in 1/4 inch and then attaches to the back and front. The machine I ordered I understand does this as well. The lady I spoke to said it works beautifully. It will not be shipped until after the holidays so I'll find out then. I am hoping that it works though. The binding may be wider than I want so I'll see.

My friend has an agreement with a local longarmer. She does the bindings on all the quilts (by hand) in exchange for having her quilts quilted for free. It works out for both of them. The LA's customers get their bindings done, the LA gets the $ and my friend saves on quilting costs. Depending on how many binding requests you get, this could be the way to go. For me, hand sewing the binding is my favorite part, I can do it while watching TV.

I agree with Colleen, personally I love to do hand work so I enjoy doing the binding. I have cheated on a toddler quilt and did SID. I attached the binding and made sure it was a little larger on one side. sewed it on then folded it over and very carefully stitched over the stitching, that way stitching it down to the back. It actually looked okay and as it was for a "hurry up" gift it worked. I probably would not do it this way on a customer quilt however.

A binding machine serves several purposes. You can use one to publish your own works, make promotional materials, compile reports for business meetings, or add an extra dash of pizzazz to a school project. If you've never used a binding machine before, it can be hard to know which features are essential and which are merely options.

The best binding machine is the one that can meet your specific daily usage needs. It is durable and powerful enough to make your workload manageable while offering you the ability to adjust edge and depth margins for special projects. Manual binding machines are suitable for light-duty work, but an electric binder may be a better option for heavier usage situations.

For information on how binding machines work and which features to look for while shopping, keep reading. If you are ready to purchase a binding machine, consider one of the options we've spotlighted in this guide.

You will be disappointed if you purchase a binding machine that cant handle your required page count. For instance, if you are going to be binding 200 pages and the machine you purchase maxes out at 150 pages, it won't be of use to you.

If you are going to be making booklets that are a variety of sizes, it is possible to create them on most binding machines. However, that doesn't necessarily mean it will be an easy process. If that is your situation, it would be best to purchase a binding machine with features that facilitate flexibility.

Even though binding machines are meant to make the punching and binding process as effortless as possible, some exertion is still required. If you will be performing a great deal of manual binding work, over time, that repetition could cause injury to your wrist or hand. Electric binding machines are considerably more expensive, but if that's what you need to avoid injury, that's what you should purchase.

Your budget is also an important factor to consider. Only you know what you can comfortably spend. However, if paying a few dollars more would make the difference between getting a binding machine that you constantly complain about and getting one that is up to the task, it is better to save up for the binding machine that would make you happy and allow you to achieve a smooth workflow.

Punching capacity: How many sheets your binding machine can punch at once may not seem like an important factor, but it is the biggest consideration when it comes to production rate. If you have a machine that only punches 10 sheets at a time, it will take twice as long as a binder that can handle 20 sheets at a time.

Manual or electric: Since there are two steps punching and binding needed to create a book, there are two places where you could benefit by automating the process. Some binding machines only offer electric binding, while higher-end models may also offer electric punching.

Removable binding: Some binding machines come apart so that one person can be punching while the other is binding. This feature can double your production rate. If speed is important to you, look for a binding machine with this capability.

Edge guide: The edge guide allows you to center your sheets, so the position of the holes is consistent on all pages. This is an essential feature that is available, in some way, on all binding machines. However, pricier machines offer greater flexibility and control.

Disengageable dies: The dies are what produce the holes. With disengageable dies, you can select which pins punch and which do not. This is helpful if you have a half-punched hole at the edge of your paper that can't seem to be fixed by adjusting the edge guide. Disengage that die, and the pin will no longer punch that bothersome half hole.

Adjustable depth margin: This controls how deep into the sheets the holes can be punched. This is important when creating books with larger page counts because punching too close to the edge allows the pages to tear out more easily.

Built-in comb guide: If you need help figuring out what size comb you need for a project, look for a binding machine with a built-in comb guide to help you get it right each time. ("Comb" is the name for the plastic strip that binds the pages.)

Materials: Because of the nature of the work, your binding machine is going to take a lot of pounding. Look for one with all metal parts if you want it to last. Also, rubber feet may help keep the machine from sliding.

If you just need something for light-duty manual binding, you may be able to find a binding machine in the $35 to $60 range. However, the $60 to $120 price bracket is where you will find binding machines with a better build quality that are more durable. Between $120 to $300, you will find heavier-duty machines with bells and whistles that make them suitable for any binding job. In this price range, you will also find machines with electric comb inserters.

Using a binding machine to create books sounds like a long and intimidating process. However, it is a remarkably simple process that you can quickly master. To help you understand just how easy it is to make a book, we've outlined the basic steps below.

Q. I don't work in an office. Why would I need a binding machine? A. The uses for a binding machine are only limited by your imagination. It is an incredible tool that can help you create keepsakes, personalized calendars, and photo albums. School tests, awards, artwork, important documents, ideas, affirmations, warranties, and owner's manuals can all quickly be punched and assembled to make permanent booklets of vital documents that you place on a bookshelf for easy storage and accessibility. Never misplace an important sheet of paper again.

Q. What other materials do I need? A. Other than the printed sheets, there are only two materials you will need to create a booklet. You will need a durable front and back cover to help protect and preserve the inside pages, and you will need a plastic comb that is the right size for your project.

Q. What if I want to change my project after I bind the pages? A. With comb binding, that is not a problem. If you would like to add pages, remove pages, or even just reorganize a few pages, simply slip the booklet into your binding machine to open the comb and remove the paper. You can then adjust your project however you'd like and close the comb to have a brand new book.
