I found that if I use the zipper foot, I can get close enough to the "rope" to keep it where it's supposed to be. That's what I used for my last bit of piping I did....

What she said... ZIPPER FOOT!!! I bought my machine in the early 80's (age of the stretch knit) and it did not come with a zipper foot. I had to find one that sort of fit and then adjust it with the dremel tool (wear protective googles) until it actually fit.

Yeah I used my zipper foot to make the piping, the regular one to sew it in the seam. An invisible zipper foot would work even better I would think but my favorite machine doesn't have one and I didn't feel like switching...
