Pinmoors are quicker and easier than safety pins
If you get frustrated with the time spent adding and removing safety pins from your quilts, Pinmoors are for you! Pinmoors give you an easy way to hold pieces of your quilt together, and you can easily remove them while you’re quilting. Just put the pin in through the top layer to the back of your fabric, then from the back to the top and attach the Pinmoor. Or you can hold the Pinmoor and push the pin through the layers to stick it into the Pinmoor.
Pinmoors have many advantages:
Each package comes with 50 Pinmoors in assorted colors.
- You can use your favorite pins you already have.
- The head of the pin and Pinmoor sit on top of the quilt.
- Pinmoors are easily removed while quilting.
- Remove them and place them into a bowl. When you're done, take a magnetic pincushion and wave it over the bowl. The pins come up and Pinmoors stay in the bowl.
- You can also use numbered head pins with a Pinmoor to keep track of your rows while piecing.
- Place pinmoors on the ends of sewing sewing needles to keep them from getting lost in pincushions.
- Use to hold doll parts in place while sewing.
