Default Has anyone tried the Wonder Pins?

I found them the cheapest on Ebay- Eleanor Burns has an Ebay store. They were like 15.99 or something close.

I'm anxious to try them. I often glue baste but I like to add a few pins just in case.

Anyone try them? If so, how do you like them?

I like them, I find they bend fairly easily. I have the aqua top ones. I like that I can pull them out with the tip of my fingernail because of the grooves in the silicone tops.

Had to look them up to see what they were and saw that Connecting Threads has a big sale on them for 20 pins for $6.00 if that’s any help. They look interesting. Grammasharon

The heat from the iron doesn't melt the heads. Always better to have the new improved notions.

I think you're referring to the Clover Wonder Pins which I have not yet used and am very interested in opinions from those who have. https://www.connectingthreads.com/cl...r-pins/p/21834

But others (I think) are referring to the Magic Pins which I have used and love! I have the 1 3/4" Agua but just ordered the Pink that are 2 1/4" long. https://www.connectingthreads.com/ma...-0-6mm/p/21499

They're all on sale at Connecting Threads.

Hmmm, I use my nice long thin pins occasionally, but my favorites are wonder clips or a bit of elders that's been set with a hot iron. No distortion of the fabric, it's cheap and reliable

I was thinking of Miracle pins! The Wonder pins are just updated versions of the pin covers you can buy to put on any safety pin, curved or straight. All three are good choices.

I was also speaking of Magic Pins! Thanks for catching that Merkle!

Wow! That's a great price! Even if they have to add for shipping it's still a good deal. Mine were 15 and change with free ship.
I may get some more at CT. Thank you!

The ones I'm referring to are safety pins, not straight pins.
