I just got off the phone with Jackie. I am trying to use the binding tool and watching Jenny's tutorial at the same time. I did it wrong again. I just wanted to say that I heard her voice. I am tickled pink, can you tell?

Monique - I gave up on the binding tool! I learned to do it myself using a book - and I sew across the ends WRONG every time!!!!!! But yesterday, I DID IT ALL BY MYSELF, without looking at the picture, correctly, the first time!!!!!!!!! I am so proud! Small accomplishments, right? You'll get it, keep trying (and if you want to hear my method, just message me!)

I have a binding method that works every time but I am always stressed that the next time for some reason it won't work and I'll have to work on it all over again. I'm binding my first ever scalloped border today. We'll see how that goes!

And yes, I can tell that you are excited about talking to Jackie!

Jackie is the salt of the earth! I met her when I visited MSQC last spring, she is just great! She'll figure out any problem and make it right! What a great customer Service person she is! Glad you got to talk to her.

I lost my binding tool somewhere, and haven't missed it a bit. I can do it correctly and successfully every time using my own method. I would like to do a friendship braid using the binding tool, but that is all I want to use it for.

I really like the binding tool. The only time I have problems with it (in the beginning) was when I didn't have the 12" opening 12 inches.

How nice for you, I gave up on the binding tool, I was taught a different method at a quilting class where you dont have to match up seams, it is so much easier, the friendship braid is also on my todo list though.

I wish I had a reason to call and talk to Jackie. They just make everything so easy, I don't need to! Hmmm, maybe I can pretend I had a problem and call....nope, wouldn't work! Or, maybe I can just call and say Hi and Thanks!

I would be tickled pink too!

LOL-that's a good idea Bella!

I use Nancy's method....(Nancy Notions). She has a video and someone posted a link to it not long ago....it has helped my binding overall...they are coming out much nicer than before!
