    I like using them but unfortunately the iron got too close and melted couple on the bottom. Had trouble getting it off the
    iron. How stupid can I get.

    I had the same problem of the flower top coming off the yellow dritz pins, especially when pinning sandwiches. They did better when just piecing. I had no problem with the ones I ordered from Clover. The flat head pins that look like buttons (I think they are also DRitz) are horrible. They are not very sharp and they break.

    I love the flower head pins. That said, I have tossed the yellow ones -- the ones I had were thick and dull. I do use glass headed pins if I am going to take something that is pinned to the ironing board. I have not had a lot of trouble with the heads coming off (the pins I have are multicolored), but my arthritis hands love the flower head pins.
