    I was just doing two small projects and discovered they come out better with using more pins, I tend to underestimate how many I use. Sometimes just dont want to pull them out. Nice end projects. :lol:

    I find that to be true often. And sometimes I'm lazy and don't use enough....

    I have tried to get away without using pins when sewing some seams and sometimes that decision comes back to bite me in the you know where.

    I've heard that some people sew through pins (machine sewing) but when I learned to sew that was a huge no-no. Of course I tried it anyway and broke many needles. Is it just certain machines you can do it with??
    Back to the topic.......... I agree with MamaBear :D I have big bite marks :D:D

    I pin too, when piecing, but not sewing strips together. On borders and sashing, looks like a porciupine is living on my machine!

    I am a pinner. Even if you do take them out. Pinning really will keep things accurate.

    I do actually sew over pins, I try to pull them out prior to getting to the needle. But I have an old Work Horse all Metal 930 Bernina, no computer.
