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.

Browser: It is existing Explorer, Chrome from Google or Firefox. I use Chrome and it is working fine. Apple have also his browser.

Speedness of your internet: check with your provider of internet, you maybe need to upgrade for a higher speed but before:

Other: Here is a situation happened to me. My laptop was reading good the videos in the living room but not in the sewing room, back the house. So my computer was in a zone of my house that the router (wifi) was not having the capacity to give the connection wiht the wifi.

Solution: I bought me a Wifi-Range Extender that is suitable with the kind of the rooter I have. Now I can watch my videos, on chrome.
