Your question: Do you sew over pins?

When should I change my sewing pins?

Always discard bent or dull pins as soon as you find them, lest they snag on expensive fabric at the very end of your next project. Likewise for sewing machine needles, discard your needle after every major project or risk it snagging or skipping on the next project and require unpicking (or worse!).

Can I iron over pins?

Do not iron/press over pins.

Not only is there the risk of them melting, but you can permanently distort the fabric in the places where the pins were. Prewash & iron your fabric before you cut it, trying not to change the shape of the fabric too much.

Where is the best place to hold pins while sewing?

As you stitch, the pins will be to the left of the needles and knife. They will hold the fabric stable and you and your machine will be safe from accidents.

Can you use safety pins as sewing pins?

Safety pins are one of those handy haberdashery items that can be used for numerous purposes. Pony safety pins are designed to be multifunctional for use in sewing, quilting and other projects. They hold fabric in place, are indispensable for emergencies and general household use as well as creative craft applications.
