Review Guidelines

Good for basting
I would like to offer a counterpoint. I prefer these pins for basting. I machine quilt several a year lap size to queen-size, and have used both size 1 and 0. I starch my backing and tops, which adds density to pin through. I use the Quik Clip (indispensable) for closing and opening them. Here is why I like size 0 nickel plated: They leave smaller holes in the fabric. Size 1, especially with pin covers on them (highly recommended - save your fingers pain and grief), pulls on the fabric when you roll the quilt for fitting it through your machine (mine has a large sized opening to maneuver the bulk through). When the pins are pulled on they leave holes. Sure, these "quilt out" to an extent, but are holes nonetheless. Size 1 pins can be difficult to maneuver around, especially if you have basted the recommended distance of 2" to 3" to prevent layers shifting. (I mostly use a walking foot.) They are much harder to remove as you sew, for the simple fact that they are bigger and stronger, slowing down the sewing. This can also contribute to making larger holes in the fabric. With size 0, you won't have to remove many if they are strategically placed. They weigh more, especially with pin covers, therefore making the quilt harder to manipulate when sewing. I don't consider size 0 perfect, though. Because they are smaller, they are a bit weaker. You have to develop a personal technique. Practice to find the right combination of table and chair height. Practice to find the optimum distance the pin pierces through. Practice where you place the fingers of your other hand for resistance when pushing through. Pin a small section then use a Quik Clip to close them. Sometimes a pin goes in just fine, but won't go easily out the other side. Close it, toss it in a tin. Pin covers don't fit them, but that's why I like them. Small and flat. I must mention that I have small hands and fingers. Maybe holding size 0 can be more difficult for some. Bottom line: give 'em a good try. I Recommend This ProductAbout Me: Sewer or QuilterSkill Level: Expert

Safety pins
I thought these pins would be large enough to get thru the three layers of a quilt sandwich. NOT so. These are very small pins. the description of "Use for basting quilts quickly" is totally inaccurate. Very disappointed in this.I Don't Recommend This ProductAbout Me: Sewer or QuilterSkill Level: Intermediate
