OK, so I know I have told 7000 of you out there about the QUILT BINDER SET (which MUST go onto your Christmas Wish List if you do not own a QUILT BINDER SET yet!!), and I also know I have told many of you that you can purchase the JANOME COVERPRO/CPX TAPE BINDER attachments (without base plate etc) to use WITH your JANOME QUILT BINDER SET for different finished binding widths.
This is just a review for those who remember me telling this at one or another promotional event. For the rest of you who have asked and perhaps did not get an answer……….. there is another NARROWER tape binder you can buy to do smaller quilt binding for your quilts. The Part # is 795824014. We have them in stock so all you need do is ask your local JANOME DEALER to order this part # for you and VOILA…..you will be able to do quilt binding with a finished width of 8mm. This attachment requires you to cut strips 32mm wide and then, when applied to your quilt edge, it becomes 8mm finished width (or 5/16 inch – approximately 1/4 inch if you think in inches)
The Quilt Binder set starts with 50mm strips and gives a finished width of 15mm. For imperial: start with a 2 inch strip for a finished width of 9/16 inch or just over 1/2 inch finished width.
HERE ARE A COUPLE OF OTHER REMINDERS:
- There are many (at least 6-8) blog posts dedicated just to the QUILT BINDER SET and how to use it properly. These are either in the form of step-by-step photo’s and instructions OR video’s. Please type Quilt Binder set in the search box at the top right of this janomelifeblog home page to find these posts.
- You will need to own the QUILT BINDER SET firstbefore you purchase the attachment for narrower bindings as the base plate, screws etc come with the Quilt Binder set. The Part # quoted above only contains the extra attachment to give a narrower binding.
- This QUILT BINDER SET is not comptaible with all our JANOME sewing & embroidery machines. Please consult your local JANOME dealer to check if it will be compatible with the JANOME sewing machine you currently have. Basically you need to have a machine with a clear plastic bobbin cover that is a rectangular shape (not a square shape). Here is a quick list of machines which are compatible with the Quilt Binder set: Mc12000, Mc11000 (all models); Horizon 8900; Horizon 8200; Horizon 7700; Mc6600P; Mc6500P; 3160; 4120. I think that is them all…..hope I did not leave any off.
I hope this reminder helps and jogs some memories of things I have said before on this blog and at Dealer events & sewing shows.
