I found Indigo Instruments via the blog of artist Ann Wood. I was not sure what would be the best size for pinning cloth, so this sampler pack is perfect. So far I have tried the #4, and they are perfect for med-lightweight fabric. Nice and sharp, slender, long, very strong. The tiny heads stay out of the way when I am sewing. I will be ordering more for sure; I love them! I am also going to give some to my friend who needs strong pins when making her corsets.
I needed some pins, but just didn't know the size that I required. I spent a good bit of time searching around the internet for a packet that would provide me with a range of pins for a reasonable price. Was so happy to find the sample pack. I am actually using the pins to place in the shafts of my needle glue injectors from Rockler, to keep the shafts clear. After trying out many of the pins, I have decided on using the black enamel #3. These pins are lovely. They feel good, Have an elegant head. I love beautiful tools, even small ones like these pins. What a great product. Thank you.
Originally planned to buy from Amazon, but I wasn't sure what size I needed. Then I found this sampler pack, which was both cheaper and shipped faster than I could have gotten elsewhere. These seem like great quality pins, and I'm excited to use them!
