    I bought some applique needles and love them! I thought they might be too short, and that my reg. pins were fine....but, now using them I love them!! My thread doesn't seem to get caught on them at all, the applique sits nice and tight to the fabric. Mine are Clover w/a white rounded end....now, I am on the hunt to find different ones. Know of any?And, do you like yours too? I can't seem to find any since!! Skeat

    Just looked at my appliqué pin box, sorry no name on it! They're very short & very fine...I bought them at a quilt shop....not made in China ones. It is amazing how pleasant it is to use just the right pins isn't it? Hope you find some soon.

    I really love mine too. I guess I am a nut, but I have different kinds of pins and they all have their own pin cushion or magnetic thingy, and I think of these little ones as special.
    I don't think I have the label anymore, (which is something I usually keep...info), but I bought mine at Joann's.
    I would like to have some more, please sir. Fixin to take a trip their in about a week or so.
    Funny, I get a thrill just thinking about going in a fabric store to get a box of pins or needles...ah, but what will I come out with????? :D :D :D
