    I bought some great bias trim and cord to add piping to my son's apron. I have never done so before. Does anyone have any hints that would help me be successful????

    Either pin frequently or glue baste to keep it in position as you stitch.

    Use your zipper foot, so you will be right against the cord.

    I have a piping foot but do a better job with my zipper foot as Wolfkitty mentioned. Just take your time and I bet you will be amazed how great it will turn out.

    Happy Thanksgiving!
