We now have a Bias Tape Binding Set for Cover Stitch Machines! You can use this two-piece set to fasten bias tape binding to the edge of your fabric. The set contains a wide guide for wide bias tape (using the 6mm cover stitch) and a small guide for narrow bias tape (using the 3mm cover stitch), or for use with the chain stitch. Whichever you choose, you’ll love the results!
Life just got a little easier with the Dual Function Fold Binder. Now you can fold 1.25″ (32mm) wide bias fabric tape into 0.31″ (8mm) wide double-fold bias tape before applying the bias tape binding to the edge of the fabric. This binder attaches easily to the cover stitch machine with two screws (included). This accessory can also be used as a binder for single-fold bias tape.
Now you can achieve the perfect finish with the Narrow Zipper Foot. Its sleek design allows it to sit along the edge of your zipper, trim, craft and sewing projects. You’ll gain more visibility and precision with the narrow toe while you adjust the needle to the left or right of the foot for easier sewing.
