    Off and on depending on mood, the pattern and where the pins are in relation to the cats!

    I'd like to try the Elmer's glue trick, but I haven't gotten up the nerve. I bought some, but that is as far as I've gotten.(O:

    I didn't use to pin and I still don't if it's just two pieces being sewn, but if I need to match seams, I always pin. A friend showed me how much better I sew when I pin (if pinned correctly!) so I am a convert, ever since.

    I pin if there are seams to match...that's about it.

    Same here. It's easier to pin than to unsew.

    When I sew seams...the pins are the best...but I have to admit I find pins all over my living room...
