|It would be nice if we could have one straight pin which would do everything we needed, but it just isn’t how it is. As the years have gone by, we have bought them all, but there are just four that we use all the time and we wouldn’t want to be without any one of them. First, the Clover silk pins with red and white glass heads. These have long been a very favorite for machine and hand piecing. These are very sharp. Near the sewing machine, we throw away everything else. You will LOVE us for these!! |
Secondly, a Multi-Use heavy duty pin for big jobs! Some like a longer pin than this, but we DO NOT. At 1-1/2”, this pin is the ideal length. It was hard to find this pin when we needed more. Super Strong! Smooth, Fine, Sharp 0.60mm Steel Shaft.
Thirdly, a pin for pinning stacks together when you want the stacks to lay flat. Longer than we like, but for this particular job they work well. Nothing else works as well when cutting multiple layers with a rotary cutter, such as in Stack-n-Whack. After trying a number of brands we found these held their flowers the best.
And lastly, the Appliqué Pins by Clover. The almond shaped design of the glass head allows the thread to slip right off rather than wrap around, and easy to manipulate. of 2cm - 3/4” long per box.
