    I wish I could find a box of the ones like my grandma gave me in my first sewing basket. They looked like the inexpensive silver sewing pins, but the heads were glass, but small. They looked like they had a silver line around the middle of each glass ball, but that was just the edge of the flat, silver head shineing through. The way I remember it (not always trustworthy ) they were wonderful.

    Great topic!
    I'm not super picky about notions but I agree with using glass head pins.
    The plastic headed ones aren't always as sharp.
    Also, I bought some safety pins recently from my favorite quilt shop, they were so dull I'm not even going to bother with them. :/ The curved ones always work out well for me, they're just all sitting in another quilt right now. It's marinating in the closet. You know how it is.
    And 'pin heaven,' I am still laughing about that!!!

    I only use glass head pins because of this.

    I used to do the diaper pins along the side of my nose for the oily slide through the diaper ease.

    What do they mean in connecting threads when they say "soaked fabric"? Don't think I ever heard of that before?
