I've always used saftey pins, but I don't like them--they leave too big a hole and I hate fussing with opening them when it's time for them to come out.
Years ago, for one of the Christmas secret Santa gifts, I received a little box of long pins. I wondered what the heck they were for. Too long to hold a corners when sewing... :roll:
BUT! I just used them to hold some layers together to prepare to quilt. I tried it before and stuck myself WAY too many times, so this time I tucked the tip back through. I'm sure I'll still get pricked, but it should be easier to pull out when I get to it.
Am I on the right track? Suggestions? Hints? Help me.
