    Default Pinmoors

    I have two questions,
    1. Does anyone use "Pinmoors" pin to pin baste their quilts and do you like them?
    2. Has anyone made their "Pinmoors using straight pins and backer rods from Home Depot?

    A package of Pinmoors are $34.00, a package of straight pins with fancy tops at "Wally World" is $5.00 and backer rods 1/2 by 20 t at Home Depot is $4.00. Total $9.00 vs $34.00. I rather spend my money on fabric, if you know what I mean?

    When I first saw them, I thought they were a pretty ingenious idea. I refused to pay that price though. Then I read somewhere that you can use the foam earplugs, so MM went and bought me some in bulk and I cut several in two. They do work well and were a lot cheaper!!

    I have them and used them once and then I discovered the Elmers school glue method and have used it ever since. I have to stop myself from buying gadgets which I use once and then decide I do not like them.

    I agree with the folks here; just diy pinoors if you need such a thing.
    Home Depot type stores sell small foam tubes that you can cut up and stick on the end of your pins quite easily.
