You need to tell me what kind if fabric you're sewing, but it should not be necessary to pin the fabric to sew it. Do you have a digital camera to take a picture? Is this a sharp 90 degree turn? If so, you need to lift the foot with the needle down through the two pieces of fabric, cut a relief cut, turn the fabric 90 degrees and continue sewing. Do these first 3 pictures help, or is it more like the last picture? To sew the corner like in the last picture, you don't need to lift the foot. If it's just slightly round you may need to lift the foot and turn it slightly after every stitch, or every couple stitches. Hope this helps.

No one lives forever, the trick is creating something that will.
