Pinmoor - Pin Anchors for Sewing and Basting
Are you struggling to baste your quilts effectively and easily with safety pins?
Basting is often a quilters least favorite part of quilting because it's time consuming, difficult, and often safety pins tear up your hands.
But now we have an alternative to safety pins - Pinmoors!
Pinmoors are simple silicon nuggets made out of the same material in baby pacifiers. They're non-toxic and very easy to use - just push them on the end of a straight pin and they will cap the pin and stay in place for as long as you need them.
Watch how inventor Loretta Ivison bastes a quilt with Pinmoors, then easily takes them out while quilting:
Pinmoors are especially helpful for quilters with arthritis and joint pain because they're much bigger and less complicated to use than safety pins!
Just slide your pin into your quilt and stick the sharp end into a Pinmoor. It's simple, easy, and effectively holds the layers of a quilt together for quilting.
Pinmoors will hold your quilts together as securely as safety pins. Because you can use longer straight pins to baste your quilts, you will also use fewer Pinmoors. A pack of 100 Pinmoors should be enough to baste crib to lap sized quilts.
Pinmoor Color Notice:
We carry Pinmoors because they're an awesome tool for basting, however we've recently had trouble keeping this item in stock in one set color.
We've decided to fix this problem by ordering an assortment of Pinmoor colors: white, yellow, red, purple, orange, and pink. When you order Pinmoors, you may receive any one of the following packs of colors:
We never know what will be available to ship and would prefer not to delay your order over the color of this item. Keep in mind that all Pinmoors work wonderfully no matter what color they are!
Special note from Leah Day: I began using Pinmoors in early 2012 as I started the Free Motion Quilt Along. Not only were these pin anchors easier and faster to use, I also found them much more convenient for basting quilts quickly and effectively.
