✂-Designer's Tip of The Day-Pins!

There are many different types of pins to choose from, how do you know which pins are best for which project?

Glass Pins- Usually a finer point, best to use with fine fabrics such as silk chiffon or silk charmeuse.  These pins won't melt if passed under the iron.

Quilting Pins-  Quilting pins are much longer than the basic pin.  They can be used for making garments but harder to use on small curves.

Dress maker Pins- These pins have no ball at the end and are used in draping so that they can hold fabric in place on a dress form for marking.

Oh.... ever wonder what the little tomato is used for?  Sharpening the pins!

Happy Friday! ♥
