Not all Quilter’s pins are created equal! Only Dritz pins deliver the perfect pin every time. Quilter's Pins with a plastic yellow and White heads for easy view and grasp. Thinner pin leaves for finer holes in fabric. #28 1 3/4". 500 per box. These quilters pins have bright yellow heads making them very visible and the extra length makes them excellent for general sewing, not just quilting. Dritz products are always reliable and these pins last for years and years.
I use these pins every day, practically every minute. They are great for fittings, big enough and strong enough to hold most fabrics together, and find again later. I use them for everything except quilting, which is supposedly what they are for. For quilting I like lighter weight (so I cans sew over them) pins with glass heads, some are shorter some are longer.
I use these pins on a daily basis and love them! They are very sharp and the 1 3/4" length makes them so easy to handle.
The pin itself is great. I love the thin design and the strong shaft. You can use them with every fabric, and I do! The plastic head is what I don't like. It melts when in contact with a hot iron, which I use constantly when sewing. Consequently, my box of pins has very unusually shaped heads on them.... But the pins still work great.
