Flower Head Pins by Collins $5.90 (regularly $8.49)
What could be better to start the new year than a good batch of excellent pins?! I have become kind of picky about my pins, I hate to grab one from the pincushion that is bent or dull. So now I keep an little tin box (empty Altoids tin) by my machine and that is where I deposit any pin that doesn't meet my expectations. Here are the vital statistics on these pins:
multi-color flat flower heads
no melt plastic
These popular pins are ideal for a variety of uses. The brightly colored heads are easy to see and grasp and may be ironed over safely. Quilters like them for holding stacks of fabric together when rotary cutting. The pins lay flat under an acrylic ruler and keep the fabric layers from shifting. Sewers find the 2 inch length convenient when working with polar fleece and decorator fabric - and for conventional sewing and serging. The heads will not slip through openings in lace and loosely woven knits - and also work well for pin weaving.
