Default Magic Pins. Anyone Using Them? How Do You Like Them?

Magic Pins are from Taylors Seville (link here http://www.taylorseville.com/magic-pins.html). They are straight pins with silicone ends that you can iron over.

I was just curious if anyone has been using them and how you like them. I'd like to hear a review before I buy any.

Jenny Doan used them on her latest (or the one before) video. It's a great idea but I have never had a problem with glass head pins. They look like they might be easier to grasp.

​They main benefit is you can iron over them.

I like the fact that you can iron over them but mine seem too thick. I'm not wild about them.

I guess I don't understand why you would want to iron over your pins, seems like it would be "setting" the pin holes into the fabric, could scratch the face of your iron, and would also "set" the pin distortion into the fabric?????

I was gifted a box and I very seldom use them. I don’t iron over my pins so this is not what I want. If there is an upside it is they are easier to grasp. I especially like the ones I have that look like flat buttons with 4 little holes in them and have accidentally ironed over them with no issue. Just my opinion.

I like them, you can pull them out as you are sewing with just a fingernail inserted into one of the tiny grooves in the head.

They have an extra fine pin which might suit me. I like and use the glass head pins which are very thin. You can iron over them as they are glass. If I needed new pins, I might consider the extra thin ones. Depends upon the price. As we all now there is always a new mouse trap out there. To each their own.
