    Talking I love my new pins!

    I got new pins today - the Clover patchwork pins fine. They're 0.4 mm in diameter, instead of the 0.5 mm of the pins I was using before. You wouldn't think it would make such a difference, but it really does! My pinning is much more accurate, there's much less 'pull' on my fabric, and my sewing accuracy is improved by this. So happy I decided to listen to the advice I got about this!
    Live and let live.

    I'm with you! I use the Clover patchwork pins, and also the longer ones for when I sew on fleece. Clover products are hard to beat.

    Pins are too inexpensive not to use the best. The flower head pins are thicker then I like to use but are useful in some pinning situations.

    I have two of the magnetic pin trays, red and yellow. The red one has a family of "big 'uns" that I use on my working wall, or grouping 10 blocks together at a time so I can tell at a glance how far I've come or still need to go.

    the yellow one has long fine pins in for patchwork, with glass heads so I can iron over them without getting a plastic gob

    No, they have a glass head, a bulb (did that make sense?). They're usually yellow heads, but mine have either a yellow or a blue head - don't know if that's new or if people who describe them just forget to mention they're also blue... On pictures you usually only see the yellow ones.
    Live and let live.

    those sound great. i use silk pins because they are so thin and have glass heads. sometimes, though, i need a longer one.
