If you have not tried the Clover Wonder Clips yet, you may want to reconsider!
The more I use them, the more ways I find that they are useful. When I first got them, I was so used to using pins for my needs, I found using them to be a little awkward. I had to think about trying them when reaching for pins was like second nature.
These little clips hold strong and are made flat on the bottom so if you are using them to hold what you are sewing on your machine, they can remain attached until they are close to you needle.
I now tend to reach for the Clover Wonder Clips instead of pins on many occasions. I even use them to hold stacks of blocks together while organizing my quilt rows. They keep my rows together and never poke or make me bleed!!
I hope you'll give them a try and let me know what you think.
