    Yesterday at my community quilts meeting a lady had one of these. I need one!! I'm so tired of poking my fingers and breaking my nails when I pin. I'm going to look for one today.

    Do you have one? What do you use to close pins?

    I've seen them, but for me it would just be something else to put down and then not be able to find it. Like my pins are always on the other side of my large table when I need more.

    I use a small teaspoon that I slip under the pin when closing it, keeps me from putting a ridge in my fingernail. I keep the spoon and a tweezer in the box I keep my pins it so it's always handy when I need it. I use the tweezer to pull out loose threads poking out of seams. May in Jersey

    I LOVE it! it has grooves the hold the pin, makes fast work of basting, you hold it in your nondominate hand which seems odd at first

    I have had mine for years. I loved it. The arthritis is so bad now I can't use it anymore. Darn.

    I have 2 of them--one for a helper--and I couldn't pin a quilt without 'em. Am looking into maybe purchasing some Pinmoors to see how they work.

    I use mine with the basting gun, too, not just safety pins.

    I push the needle all the way from top to bottom and back to the top, use the Kwik Klip to push the fabric to the base of the needle and pull the trigger.

    If you have a nut pick (seafood pick) you can use the handle on that, too - it's got nice ridges to cradle the pin on the safety pin or the needle on the basting gun.

    I have one & don't like using it. Therefore it is just rolling around in a drawer & will never ever be used. PM me your address & I will mail it to you.

    yep i got one when i used pins a lot. lately i've pinned some borders and can't find my kwik Klip so i got out a white pointed Hera marker and used it to hold the pin tip up while I close it. worked fine. grapefruit spoons also work.

    I bought one of those when it first came out. I used it all the time but now I have found with the curved pins I don't really have a problem.

    If you pin your quilts this is the most important notion tool you can own. It saves on your fingers, and so easy to use.
