Safety Tailor Pin / Safety Tailor Pin

Safety Tailor Pin

Shaped like a figure eight, Safety Tailor Pin increases safety while enhancing usability for sewers.
Sewing pins are essential during the entire sewing process – from cutting the fabric to stitching. They can easily cause injury, however, by pricking the sewer’s fingers. Safety Tailor Pin was conceived to reduce the occurrence of pinpricks. It is a curved pin, shaped like a figure eight. As the sharp end of the pin is not at its extremity, there is less chance of injury. Also, as the pin crosses over itself, it holds the fabric and the paper pattern together more firmly.
