    I used to always hold pins in my mouth until one day I saw my grandbaby mimic me!!! Now I use a magnetic pin cushion attached to my wrist --- works great.

    I HAVE BEEN SEWING 4 DAYS IN A ROW AND ONLY PUT ONE PIN IN MY MOUTH. DON'T THEY SAY IT TAKES 21 DAYS TO BREAK OR MAKE A HABIT? IT IS SO FUNNY NOW I AM SO CONCIOUS OF IT AND THATS A GOOD THING.

    Thanks for the information. I do hold pins in my mouth, sometimes, but now I will have to learn to stop!

    Me too, but I have to put a string on my finger to remind me to remove them before I pull it off over my head. :oops:

    my home ec teacher said she use to always put pins in her mouth until she hiccuped and swallowed some ende up in the hospital to have them removed so i never have put them in my teeth or lips as that would be really scary

    I broke myself of the habit after I started working for a sewing machine company where I also taught sewing and realized that if I put the pins in my mouth and everyone else did too it was a great way to catch the swine flu that was going around. End of story end of putting pins in my mouth.

I thought they were starting to just crack (with age LOL) and she said no, she has seen this happen to other clients. Also cutting thread with your teeth is a bad habit. Soooooo I am trying very hard to stick the pins in a cushion from now on. Thought I would pass this along. :-D

    I sewed some wide elastic on a small tomato pin cushion for my left wrist. Works great and always right where I need it. Only have to roll my wrist a little to reach my pins. My daughter puts pins in her mouth even tho I made her a tomato wrist pin cushion. Aghhhhhh.

    That's good info. Because I teach out of my home I've learned to be very careful about putting pins in my mouth. I sometimes have to share with my students and those kind of germs I can do without.

    i never used my teeth but had pins in between my lips so I would not swallow them. It is hard to break the habit after all these years but I will definitely try. Thanks.

    As a pediatric nurse once had a teenage girl as a patient who had swallowed a pin so never have developed that habit, keep a pincushion handy or a piece of batting to stick my pins into.
