    Default The Importance of Quilting Pins | National Quilters Circle .

    A new and maybe helpful video

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2SCjfXSNgNc


    Enjoy


    God, Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
    The stash to make a quilt to help me cope,
    A quilt to give to comfort those I love in times of hurt, fear and uncertainty.
    And the courage to keep on sewing when life itself seems held together by a single thread of hope.

    Hmmm. That was interesting. I haven't run across the glass pins...probably need to find them online. I do use the clover and yellow top pins and haven't had any problem with them melting...yet that is. Would be interesting to know what everyone uses.

    I did try the flat pins. Some did melt. You need to read the box. If it does say glass, they won't melt. I've got a couple of different brands.

    Since I also sew clothes, I do iron over pins at times. The only drawback with quilting pins is heavier fabric for clothes. I prefer just having one dish for pins. They do real well for heirloom type garments. Thinner than Iris pins.

    That is interesting. I knew some of that, but had never seen glass-headed pins. I have some of the flat clover top that are resistent to melting, but often still use the yellow plastic-headed types. I think the glass ones are beautiful!

    She didn't cover one of my favorites, the applique or dress makers pin. The short, all metal pins that you can pin your applique to a project and not have them stab you as you try to hand sew around it. I remember that was the only kind of pin my mother used.

    I have the glass pins, but still use the yellow flower pins I've used a long time. It may just be habit, but I find them easier/quiver to grab. I have never had one melt, but have had the plastic come off occ., but they are old.
