Haven't seen this topic yet. I'm not talking about safety pins for sandwiching, but straight pins. My cousin was over sewing last weekend and brought her own pins. they were extra long (1 7/8 - 2" ) and had glass heads. They were VERY sharp and thin and wonderful to work with. They just slid into the fabric. She thought they were Fons & Porter, but she was either mistaken or they have discontinued them. Anyone know which ones I'm talking about and can point me to the correct brand or site where they are sold???
