Default Pins - I found this helps

Many of us LOVE Clover ultra thin pins. I do. I realized they were a bit hard to pick up. The ends are so small. I had some beads and used E6000 glue. It did not take away from the useful length of the pins. It took a little time but I love how easy they are to handle now. Luckily I have never pressed over pins, so these plastic beads have not been a problem for me. PS: Happy Valentine's Day to all.

What a good idea. My problem with pins is how they disappear.

They are darling pins! I've never seen anything like that. I bet you could sell them as fast as you make them. Nice job.

Those would look beautiful in vintage pin cushions. I know they are to be used, but I love the look of them too!!

That is a great idea - not sure I would do it for myself but thinking that doing some for holiday gifts for quilting pals. Wait a minute I might as well do some for me too. What a great way to take some pins to a retreat or sewing day and knowing which are yours! Of course that would only last for one time, as everyone will go home and make some. Thanks for sharing

I have the same pins and they are so hard to spot on the floor but you are suppose to be able to iron over then since they are glass. CLEVER !!!
