They are the sharpest, smoothest pins made. They bend, but don't break and fly into helpless eyes. A quilter's favorite for over 40 years. These have the thinnest shaft of any pin. These are heat resistant and the glass heads won't melt when ironed over. Red Heads are easier to see on white and light colored fabrics.

Color: Red Heads

Made of: Metal and Glass

Qty: 250 Pins

Size: 1 3/8" long

Carolyn Vagts, former editor of Quilter's World magazine says, "These are the only straight pins I use. The glass heads won't melt, and you never have to worry about snagging your fabrics. They are sharp and thin. They are wonderful even when using batiks."

I ordered these because my other pins are very difficult to get thru layers of quilting fabric.

Have not used these yet but they came highly recommended by a renowned sewist. Look like exactly what I wanted.

I have used these pins for years. I won't buy or use other pins. I do a lot of sewing and they work beautifully for all work, except for real heavy material. They will work for heavy but carefuflly.

I chose red to see them better, very visible and I couldn't have chosen better. Thank you

I have been using these pins for at least 25 years. I originally purchased them when I visited Clotilde's booth at a sewing fair. Years later I ordered my next batch through a local quilt shop. I am not a quilter but a home sewist crafting everything from curtains to children's wear to purses. In 25 years or more I have never ever had a pin break. I do throw them away if I happen to sew over them and bend them or nick them but that is my fault not the fault of the pin. I have been so very pleased with these pins that these are the only kind I will ever buy with the exception of some longer sturdier pins for when I am sewing on denim.
