    Many years ago I saw a quilting tv show where the woman had developed multi-colored plastic backs that pressed onto the smaller curved quilting safety pins. A local shop found them at a warehouse for me, but no one else over the years has ever heard of them. I find they save my fingernails when sandwiching a quilt (I also use a grapefruit spoon to bring the pin head back up to close it). Has anyone else seen them, and maybe know where to find some more?

    I love those pin covers. They really do save your fingers from getting so sore. I bought mine at my LQS, and I've seen them in some of the quilting catalogs. They're called Quilters Delight® Safety Pin Grip Covers. Just Google the name and I'm sure you will find them. I also purchased the Kwik Klip, which serves the same purpose as your grapefruit spoon.

    Although I haven't asked them in the last two years, when I did several years ago they had never heard of what I was describing. I shall look again, as I want to send them to other quilters. Thanks for the tip.

    I do see them and they are exactly what I was looking for! I guess I have been away from quilting long enough that I didn't realize how much information I could find on the internet. Retired now, wondering how we lived before Google!
