The first time I ordered these pins it was mainly out of curiosity and I was looking for something with glass heads so I could iron over them. I was so pleased with the quality and sharpness of the pins that I ordered them again. They are a little pricey but I feel they are worth it because they are superior to any other quilting pins I have ever used. I will continue to check for sale prices and as soon as they are on special I will most definately buy more!
These pins are beautiful and perfect for simple light cotton material. However, they bent when I used them on heavy purse material. So if you plan to use them for very light weight material they'd be perfect. If you're planning to use them on any kind of material that is heavy or has layers...keep looking.
