Hi. I'd like to get some Sunbrella acrylic binding charcoal grey in 1". It appears you don't stock it but is it available? If it is would there be a minimum?

Thanks, John

Hi John,
Sorry we don't stock that one. You could make your own with a 1" binding maker tool.

Matt,
   I just checked out the 1" binder making tool and remember watching the video a while back but forgot all about it. It's a good solution for my needs and I did just order it along with the 2" version as well.

Thanks, John N

I haven't tried to make continuous bias binding, but I recalled a trick for joining the sections that is a bit different from the Sailrite version -- essentially a trade-off of the ease of cutting versus ease of spliciing the pieces.

I think I'd try this with a small square of scrap fabric before committing a large piece. I think I'd also try back-tacking the start and end of each splice before cutting.

I'm a huge fan of the Omnigrid ruler shown in the Sailrite video and a Olfa 45 mm rotary cutter used on a 24" x 36" Olfa rotary cutter pad.

For short precision cuts, especially on leather projects, I use the Omnigrid ruler for measuring, marking and cutting. For long precision cuts I use the Omnigrid ruler of measuring, and then the side of a 2"x 60" metal ruler from Homedepot for marking and making the cuts.

For long cuts that do not require precision, I use a power rotary cutter.

I should have mentioned that when making precision cuts with a rotary cutter, position the straight edge over the desired material side, especially pricy material such as leather, not the salvage side. If you wander off, and I not infrequently do, you can trim and not end up salvaging what you had intended to cut out.
