    Clover Clips are great

    I have read a number of posts lately about the Clover Clips so I decided to check them out on ebay and also Amazon. Amazon had a great price of $22 for 50 so I purchased 100 to get free shipping. I was just finishing up a lapthrow when they came in the mail so I opened them up and started using them. I can tell you for sure that all of the great things that have been said about them are exactly true. I love these clips. I have tried hairclips, rubber coated paper clips with little success. Pins work pretty well but they stick you so these clips have now become a most valuable quilting item for me. I would strongly recommend these be added to your sewing/quilting necessities.

    this is the first I am hearing of them. So of course had to google them, there seems to be different kinds for different uses. Which ones are you speaking of? Must say the binding ones do have my interest peeked.
    It all about the Journey!! Enjoy It

    I love them also. I only bought 10 because I just use them for one side at a time as I do the binding by hand, but they are really great!!!!!

    I didn't realize there were different kinds. I am speaking of the binding clips. I sew on my binding by machine and that is why I needed so many.

    I've been waiting to get some, didn't want to pay shipping. Haven't found them at JoAnns yet, but last week Hancock said they were going to be getting some.

    I find that they're helpful even for paper piecing. Once the ends of the seams are lined up by jabbing in the pins, I put the clips right on the sewing line making sure both sides line up and sew. Everything lays so flat and stays right where I want it to.

    I bought extra sets super cheap when I found an online discounter that had a going out of business clearance sale of buy one get two free! I posted the link then for everyone but my post was deleted. I have all my secret pal and guild nice gifts covered for the rest of the year. Yeah! Clover clips and Pinmores are the top two most useful tools for quilting I've bought in the last few years.

    I purchased 2 packages of 10 because I found a good sale on them. I used them on my last baby quilt with bias binding and LOVED them! I could only do a portion of the binding at a time which was the only draw back I found with my limited supply. I found the 50 count a couple of weeks later at a great price and free shipping so I grabbed them. Now I have 70 of them and I should be able clip the whole binding on a baby quilt! I haven't tried a larger quilt yet but if I need to, I'm not unwilling to buy more! I am sooooo tired of pin pricks in my hands, arms, chest and legs when I do my bindings!

    Here is a link to Clovers site for the clips, for those like me who have never heard of them. They look neat, but I finish my binding by hand and simply use binder clips from the dollar store in the same way.

    I love them for EPP, holds the hexagons together when I whipstitch them together.

    The frugal way to go is the dollar store, buy the hair clips that you bend to pop them open , I got them 12 for $1. They are wonderful, no jags or catching thread on pins. Just a little tip. Ruth

    I also bought regular hair clips at the dollar store before I purchased the Clover clips. I could not get them to stay on so I wound up pinning my binding anyway.

    Thanks for the good review. I saw them for the first time today in my new Keepsake Quilting and was wondering if they were worth it. Think I will order some.

    Thanks for your input. I have been thinking about purchasing these clips, but wasn't sure if they would be worth the price. Now I feel more inclined to purchase them.

    Haven't seen a genuine Clover clip yet in Bangkok, however, in our office supply stores have ID badge clips that look very similar to the Clover clips. Only difference I can see is they have a strip of vinyl with a snap to attach your ID card. I've used these clips with success. So maybe also Stateside in the office supply stores at a cheaper price?
