When I click on anything related to Debbie Cook's tutorials, the website comes up blank. Is it only me and my computer, or where did the information go? Thanks. Lori

She is redesigning her website and the tutorials are unavailable right now. She wrote about it on her blog.

I think that Debbie is working on her website and so files will be unavailable for a while

Thanks Lynn. Right now I think it's a matter of - I don't know, what I don't know - ya know.... I do want a narrow binder foot probably generic to save $$ for t-shirts & such. I reviewed Debbie's CS how to's a while ago, and remember thinking to my self "oh that's how it works" or "cool great idea", but can't remember anything specific. The photos she had where so helpful and I learn visually best. If you can think of any accessories or techniques that could aid a newbie like me, advise away!!

I love the knit/woven binders, and use the 8mm and 10mm most often. They're the types you saw on Debbie's website. Definitely buy those in a generic, as BL's binders are double the price! I have a link to the ebay seller Debbie mentions on her site, but the link's on my home puter; I'll post it this afternoon for you.

Now, while I do love the binders, I gotta admit I don't use them all the time, because you have to leave one shoulder seam open to use them. Then you serge (or sew) the seam closed after binding, meaning the seamline runs across the binding on that shoulder. And having that seam line across the binding at one shoulder tends to irk me on anything more than casual-type tops. For my "good" knit tops, I bind or band in the round. The coverstitch machine is superb for topstitching after applying an in-the-round binding or band. If you machine sew the band/binding on, then topstitch with the CS, the raw edges of the binding/band are covered on the inside.

When I'm home today I'll post some links I have to visual CS stuffs.

Hmmmm...well, Tishie, I couldn`t find much in the way of coverstitch tutorials online. Ya know, I think we PRers are just going to have to write a Everything You Wanted To Know About Coverstitching But Didn`t Know Who The Hell To Ask book. Coz so far there`s just nuthin`out there!

I did manage to find the link to the ebay guy who sells the BabyLock binders and other attachments (at a fraction of the BL dealer price!)

Sharp Sewing Supplies

My fave accessories for the BLCS are:

-clear foot (love this when sewing dark threads on dark fabrics, really helps visibility)
-flat sole foot (fabulous foot for when crossing thick seams)
-8mm knit/woven binder (B style)
-10mm knit/woven binder (B style)
-3/4" cut belt loop folder
-downturn fellers (various sizes, depends on what hem depth I'm wanting at the time)



ETA: ignore the flat sole foot posting; that's for the serger, not the coverstitch machine, duuuuh me!
