June Meeting - Binding: Basics & Beyond

Want to know how to make crisp, squared-off binding corners? Are you still hand sewing the final binding seam and fighting the battle of the binding bulge? Are you looking to add a little pizzazz to a ho-hum binding? Are you intimidated by just the thought of machine stitching your binding down?
