    What? Googled, searched, no response. . .

    Someone on the board stated that clover clips are the hot item of the year and also mentioned pinmores. What is a pinmore? Its use?

    Your google must be broken because I found pinmoors with just putting in pinmore.

    Someone on this board had a wonderful alternative to the Pinmoors. Less costly! She went to a Dollar Store or a party outlet store and bought childrens pencil erasers for little cost and uses them on her own pins. Wish I could remember who it was so I could give them credit! It is a wonderful idea!

    I posted a thread asking to Pinmore alternatives and I can't remember who posted the eraser idea. I did use this method and it does work wonderfully. I bought a pack of erasers at the $ store and DH cut them up into little sqs.

    I have pinmores and love them. Pinning quilts seems to go faster. Pinmores go on the end of your straight pins to keep them in place
    I never believe in the word can't,unless you've tried

    I don't like them at all. Plus they're far too expensive. I'd rather put my quilts together almost any other way. Since I have found the 3M respirators to cover my nose and mouth (COPD) (cudos to someone on this board for steering me to them) I spray baste my quilts now and love it. Whatever floats your boat, I guess (as 'they' say!) :-)

    You can use Harbor Freight ear plugs and cut them up into smaller pieces for homemade pinmores. Or so I have been told.

    Personally I don't feel the need for them.

    Have fun quilting! If it isn't fun, you will miss a lot.
