Better Piping: Sew Piping to a Curved Edge

If you've ever sewed piping to a curve using pins, you may have come across a common problem. The pins can warp the curve and the piping, making it difficult to get a smooth result.

We're offering two methods for sewing a better piped edge. One involves hand basting and the other offers a less obtrusive method that uses very few pins.
