Wonder Clips

As quilters I know we've seen the wonder clips. I think Clover was the first and they were a big hit to hold binding as you hand sewed. They were very expensive when they first came out! I'm always the last one to the rodeo.......
I was recently asked to do a review on THESE clips. 

  They are very similar to all the other clips on the market, but these come in a cute little bag. 
 They take the place nicely of pins to hold fabric in place while sewing. 
These are just as strong and sturdy as the more expensive clips. (In my opinion)
 I was making 49 flying geese- the clips were convenient to hold the parts together in geese of 10. 
 I still need to get the rest of the flying geese trimmed up. 
They come in a bag of 50 for less then $11.00. I'd say that is a bargain!

It has been a cray few weeks. But there is light at the end of the tunnel:

We have hired a new employee who will be starting in 2 weeks and my son's car that was stolen has been recovered. Hopefully it will drive. I'm heading into Portland to pick it up this week. 

Have a great Wednesday!

  6. Yep...These hold great and at a much better price.
    I use them a lot when paper piecing. You know when you have multiple layers of paper and fabric section?
    I use a pin, straight thru to line up the lines and then clip it one or more of these and its great... not bending nearly as many pins

  10. If you think you're the last one to the rodeo than I wonder if I ever get there - lol! I haven't used these clips much - I think I still like pins better... I hope your new employee works out wonderfully so you can get back to doing more of what you love!
