The Bias Binder take 2
A few days ago I had another go with the bias binder, with proper bias binding this time, and got the same result as last time. It seems that the binder attachment isn't properly aligned with the needle. This is very annoying, and I'll examine the binder closer, to see if I can perhaps move the binder slightly to the left. I also wonder if the attachment would be easier to use with a hand crank machine. When I use the binder on my 1960's singer, the binding seems to just miss the feed-dogs, and because of this, the fabric isn't properly fed. I am considering bringing the hand crank from 1908 down from the attic, and experiment a little. But not until I have finished the wedding dress I ought to be working on.
