Quick tip in case you haven't heard of this before.... when laying your binding on your ironing board to iron.... put a strip at both ends to hold your binding while you are ironing it... you can slide the fabric right thru and no more falling on the floor... I just pin the strips on and remove them when I am done.. so easy.... doh

that makes sense. I should have done that yesterday. I was folding in half and ironing a bias binding. It falls on the floor and pulls it too.
