Mrs. Shamber is an amazing seamstress and quilter.

This video is a great tutorial. However, if you are not going to enter the quilt in a contest and you have a few quilts "under your belt", you may soon be skipping some of the gluing and fussing with the construction of the actual binding.

I am not a quilter but when my DDIL asked me to make a baby quilt for my first grandchild, I could not refuse. I used this exact tutorial video and the binding came out perfectly. Excellent, easy to do instructions!

I really enjoy Sharon Schamber's videos. One thing that jumped out at me from this binding video was her use of the washable school glue. I wonder if I can use it as a basting substitute in my garment sewing. Lousie Cutting uses a lot of Steam-a-Seam instead of basting. I think the school glue would serve the same purpose. Any insights?

The glue was a revelation to me. I happen to have some on hand so I plan to give it a try when I'm reading to bind my next quilt.
I don't know why you couldn't use it for basting as she mentioned that it is especially water-soluble. Glue sticks just seem like they be somewhat easier for basting.
As to the Steam-a-seam; I am doing an applique project now with a similar product that I like ever so much better than S-A-S.
It's Heat 'n Bond...much easier to handle and work with. Comes on rolls and is available in 'light' and 'ultra'. Love the stuff.
Floriani also makes 'Press 'n Bond', it's similar but I like the Heat 'n Bond better, it comes on rolls and is wider.

I've been using Elmer's Washable School Glue (EWSG) after I saw some of Sharon Schamber's very first YouTube videos a few years ago. It's great stuff.

It is important to modify the bottle to deliver a very small amount of glue. Sharon sells replacement bottle tops and nozzles, and you can find those same products at most craft stores. Or, you can use the Bic Pencil Tip Modification (opens a PDF), which I first learned about from one of Sharon's very first YouTube videos, long since removed.

I do use glue baste to tack down basting when I sew basting on garments. It holds it in place better than pins with no slippsies

I liked the glue method. Unlike in this video though I completely glue the first side, then sew, then completely glue the back side, then sew. I don't do it by sides. It's just easier if you get all the glueing and ironing done in one go before you put it to the machine.

Linda,

Thanks for posting that video link. It really is terrific. I've been making quilts for my SPCA for the dogs and my first two had pretty sad bindings, because I didn't have a clue about putting them on. (These were my first quilts.)

I had a class at my local quilt shop on bindings this past Tuesday and it was a great class and I learned a lot, but this video takes what I now know to a new level.

I love utube and it is really great that you can download the videos to your hard drive for later use.

Thanks again,
Chris
