Dreamer, today we will show you the adjustable binder presser foot and how to use it.
This presser foot is used to apply bias binding of different sizes. Its shape helps us make various adjustments to achieve the perfect seam for every project.
It’s recommended for bias binding from 1/2″ to 2″ extended.
The parts of the binder presser foot
Look at your presser foot, identify the components, and adjust them according to your needs.
The bias binding guide has a slot for inserting the fabric and bias binding so that the bias binding folds in half and covers the edge of the fabric.
The slot spacing can be adjusted with a screw that runs to the left or right.
So that you can determine and adjust the width according to the bias binding you are going to sew.
When adjusting the guide to the width of the bias binding, remember to leave some slack in the bias binding groove so that it slides easily.
You can do a test by pulling the bias binding a little to check that it slides effortlessly and keeps the fold right in the middle.
The metal part of the presser foot has a slot where the needle goes in while sewing.
It also has a screw on the top to adjust the distance or position of the needle, that is to say, if the seam is loaded to the left, right, or center.
With this screw, you can adjust it according to the finish or the stitch you are sewing.
After making these 2 adjustments, check that the screws are tightened securely so that nothing moves while sewing.
The next step is to insert the presser foot into the machine and start sewing.
Also, here we leave you a step-by-step video tutorial for you to guide in the process.
We suggest you make several tests before sewing to find the proper adjustment for your seam.
We hope this post has liked you, and don’t forget to share with us your results!
See you in another post! and… bye for now!
