    Yes I have it and I use it with the curved pins. I don't use the little plastic doohickey that comes with it, tho. It really works great I think.

    I have one and I love it!

    I have always pin basted my quilts and my fingers would get so sore. But with this handy little tool, it is super simple, and I actually think it goes a little bit faster.

    One of my better investments, to be sure.

    I use it all the time and it sure saves my fingers. I like the curved pins, but not the little plastic thingy.
