TOPIC: Binder attachment

Re: Binder attachment 18 Jul 2013 08:17 #107124

I agree with BettyJo about the 830 machine. I have had one for several years now and most of my problems are me and not the machine. The machine reminds me of the software program, Photoshop, because it has far more to it than I will ever master. The Designer software (that came with the machine on the sales promotion) for embroidery, appliqué and quilting is fabulous but it also had a steep learning curve. I have also been trying to master the binder attachment too. Again, it is more often me than the binder. I find starching to be very important. I am still mastering corners but the latest edition of Through the Needle from Bernina had an article on it and I haven't had a chance to try it. My wonderful dealer had found a German article, lots of pix and translated, that I had been using until now for corners. I am still learning.

Lili, I sent you a response, but in general it looks like you need to loosen your top tension and tighten your bobbin tension. Make sure your bobbin is threaded for embroidery, then loosen your top tension a bit and try again. Keep loosening the top until you make sure it can't all be done from the top. If it is still looking kind of like that (pulling to the top), you will have to tighten your bobbin tension. Look this up in your machine manual to see how that is done for your machine. Usually it is turning the screw on the bobbin case slightly to the right. Just keep working with it until it is right. And then make notes for yourself so you can set it up like this again when you want to work with these threads again.

Lili, I think you must be talking about using the Bernina quilt frame together with the Quilt Motion software available for the Bernina 830, but I have no experience with this, but a lot of things--including mistakes on the part of the user--could cause skipped stitches. I would encourage you to learn to free motion quilt though. It's part of the fun. :D

I don't know what. Is meant by "auto quilting.". Do you mean quilting designs I the hoop or do you mean machine quilting with the Bernina Stitch Regulator? I waited until this year for my 830 and I have been beyond thrilled with it. Most of my skipped stitches problems with BSR are not exclusive to my 830 and is generally due to using wrong needle for my batting or thread combinations. There is no one magic needle for all machine quilting so have a nice stash of quilting, embroidery, top stitch, microtex and metallic needles on hand to try.

As for the binding attachment, I have used mine with mitered corners and I will try to find the tutorial and post it. Works well! I must say, I use this attachment for baby quilts, or quilts that I know will be simply used and enjoyed. If the quilt is heirloom or competition, I would take the time for corded bonding,

The attachment does seem to need to use bias strips rather than straight or cross grain strips. Bias just seems to fold and apply better. Ask how I know... :cry:

Do we still need to do basting ?
You can skip basting IF you want puckers and pleats in your backing and top and for thing to get skewed and wonky. So in actual fact the answer is YES you will need to baste if you want your project to look the best it can - yes it can take up time, but it is preparation time that is extremely well spent, and not really worth skimping on.

There are lots of different methods - Straight pins, straight pins with Pinmores, safety pins, stitching by hand - either running stitch or using Sharon Schamber's method (available to see on youtube). You could put it into a large frame, baste it and then remove it from the frame for the quilting (that way the large frame is only up for a small amount of time, if you are pushed for space, or are going to be machine quilting). If stitching you have the choice of ordinary tacking cotton or using the washable thread (which dissolves in water - saves unpicking). Spray basting using 505 washable glue (or similar).

I think that is nearly all the techniques available, so you have lots to choose from to try and see which one works best for you.

I have an 820 and I will say there were some problems in the beginning but these were nearly all related to
a poor dealer( since out of business) and a bad repairman who did serious damage to the machine. All since
fixed and Bid Girl is sewing sweetly now.

Lili, I have a B830 LE and absolutely love it. I have not had stitches skipping and metallic threads work fine if you set them up right. The thing about an 830 is that you have to learn how to use it. It is very advanced and has lots of ways to set up your tension and so forth (which is a very good thing if you are experimenting with threads and fabrics). If you don't take that time, it can be very frustrating and I think that 99 percent of the problems people have with it is not learning the machine. But it does more than any machine I have ever had. It sews so beautifully and I can do more with it than I ever have been able to with a domestic machine. It is expensive though, but I think it is worth the money if you are willing to learn to use it properly like any kind of advanced technology. I have a blog on using metallic threads in my personal blog. Metallics are a challenge for lots of machines.

Bernina 830 17 Jun 2012 07:44 #82651

Hi all the expert quilters...
I am very new in machine quilting .
I need sound advise about Bernina 830 . :?
I read somewhere that B830 is not as good as it seems to be ..Especially it s not cheap n so we tend to have a higher expectation :wink:
The stitches skipped so often during the auto quilt on B830 and also it cannot handle mettalic threads too ..
Anyone out there has the same problems ...
I really want an advise ..

:idea:
