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.

    Blank white square where the video should be. Happens often. Might want to check these old pages before including the link in your newsletter!

    I can't see any videos either. Be good if this could be fixed.

    The anchor pin is on the wrong end. The majority of the fabric would be between the needle and the machine. Awkward!

    Hi! If you have problem to watch the video, it might be the kind of browser you are using, the speedness of your internet and where in your house your computer is when watching videos.

    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.
