There is an article in the latest issue of Sew Stylish about pins that's pretty good.  I will admit I haven't read it thoroughly, but it got me thinking about pins and what we have at the store.  We have a lot of different pins at the store.  Or so it seems; we could have more.  We recently added this pretty cute little display called "Pins Station."  It's so nicely marketed.  I'm not usually one to sing the praises of marketing, but the little tins are cute.  The pictures on the front show you what kind of pins are in there and then there's this handy little window on the back so you can see for yourself.  I'm pleased, I guess that's apparent.

So, here are a few quick bits about pins, both from the article and from my head.  Glass head pins--they're worth it, esppecially if you ever iron with your pins in.  You don't have to worry about melted plastic heads gumming up your iron, or scooting the iron around all your plastic head pins.  You can just freely iron right on over glass head pins.  I really like pins with heads.  The ones without hurt my fingers.  Lastly, for my quick list, use sharp pins.  Don't bother with dull or bent ones, it will only lead to disappointment and frustration.
