Tip of the Week

Use stainless steel, fine point dressmaker pins for sewing. Longer pins with glass or plastic heads are easier to work with and easier to find when you drop them. Have a large quantity of pins and throw out any pin that is dull, bent, or has a burr. Damaged pins can snag and ruin fine fabrics. Test for burrs by pulling the pin along the edge of a fingernail or your front teeth.
