Who Else Wants Quality Glass Pins
Won't Snag Your Stretch Fabrics
and Won't Melt Under Hot Iron
For A Bargain Price?
There is NOTHING more frustrating than
having your delicate knits and stretch fabrics....
.... permanently ruined by pin holes and laddering!
- Teresa, a Happy Customer
Why Stretch Pins? Won't normal pins do?
Picture this..... you want to make a top in a smooth, stretchy Jersey.
You lay your paper pattern pieces on top of your expensive knit fabric, and then proceed to pinning the paper patterns onto the fabric.
Now, you've carefully cut out all the pieces, ready for the sewing machine. With anticipation, you remove all the pins, thinking to yourself that you will soon be able to WEAR this.....
..... and then you find little pin holes - or even little ladders - in your fine knit fabric, where the pins have been!
..... and these pesky little imperfections simple won't heal, so you either put up with the damage, or start cutting all over again!!
What's a budding seamstress to do?
Get some stretch pins for all your fine knits and stretch fabrics, of course!
Where are these pins made?
Sewparts Stretch Pins - Made in Japan of highest quality of Stainless Steel, these specialty Pins are Fine, Sharp and Strong.
Sewpart Stretch Pins are proudly made by Meikodo Products.
Meikodo has been around since 1949
Little has changed since then. The pins are still being made in the same traditional craftsmanship Japan is known for.
These Stretch Pins are Long, Fine and Strong.
At 35 mm in length and fine shaft, pinning pattern pieces to knit / stretch fabrics have never been easier!
You can ALWAYS see where your pins are, because they come in smooth bright red & white 2.5 mm glass heads, which will NOT melt under hot iron!
What's more, you get FIVE boxes, ALL 300 of them, safely stored away in their own clear reusable box (60 pins per box), humble pins have never looked more stylish!
Perfect for Dressmaking (a MUST HAVE for knit / stretch fabrics):
- Pinning paper patterns to fabric for accurate cutting without causing damage to delicate knit or stretch fabrics. Try cutting without them.....
- Sew sleeves to armholes easily and perfectly by pinning all the intricate curves in place.
- Marking darts have never been easier... because these pins are finer then regular pins!
- Great for marking button and pocket positions without leaving permanent holes behind so you will always end up with a professional finish!
- Sharon, a Happy Customer
What makes these stretch pins so special?
These pins are designed for use with stretch fabric and fine, delicate knits....
Similar to ballpoint sewing machine needles, the tips are smooth - and not as sharp as a dressmaking or patchwork pin - which allow them to pass easily through knit fabric, no matter how fine or delicate.
This is because a smooth ball point will slip in between the fibres, instead of catching and splitting the fibres like sharp-pointed dressmaker's pins.
What happens if you use the wrong pins?
You will find permanent holes left behind on your fabrics after you've removed the pins.
Some old pins with blunt tips might even cause severe laddering when the blunt points catch and snag the fibres. Not fun....
This sort of damage is costly because you will end up using MORE fabric, and spend extra time cutting your pieces out all over again!
What's so good about having Glass Heads on these pins?
You can leave your pins in when you iron!
That's good news for all of your applique projects that involves fusing fabric cut-outs onto your background with double-sided fusing (like Vliesofix, Steam-a-seam, or Easy Fix)....
Because you can pin all the fiddly bits down, and run a hot iron over the lot in one go!
Once your project becomes cool enough to handle, remove you pins and start stitching. Easy!
- Connie, a Happy Customer
What else are these pins good for?
More than just Stretch Pin, I use mine for almost everything else. This covers:
- Shortening strap and jeans / pants legs: they won't damage delicate knit or stretch fabrics.... save heaps of cash by doing it all yourself!
- Customise your clothes by pinning applique and trims in place before sewing. Have the designer look without blowing the budget.
- You can see the bright white or red heads so never an "Ouch" moment again from forgotten pins (YAY)!
- Simone, a Happy Customer
Patchwork / Quilting:
- Pinning together patchwork pieces prior to hand piecing
- Handy to keep a few strategically placed pins for perfect points when you machine-piece
- Hold your applique pieces in place when you work out their permanent placement
- Keeping bias stems in place while still letting them have a natural curve!
- Iron prove glass heads means you can fuse your applique pieces while they are perfectly pinned down in place!
- Secure your bias grains together when you work on mitre corners or bias bindings
So the only question is..... Is FIVE pack really going to be enough, or do you need MORE?

Glass head Stretch pins.By: Andrea Ripsher on 30 November 2016
I design my own clothes & recently bought these pins. These pins are fantastic, they are very sharp & they don't tear my drafting paper, where other pins have in the past. Great for pinning stretch fabric. Also great to iron with. I would highly recommend them to other people who love to sew. Andrea, another happy customer(5)
The Best Pins!By: Sandra on 19 November 2015
Hi Shelley, I cannot tell you how happy I was to find these pins so easily. They have been the ONLY pins I'll use for many years now (maybe not under the same name, but they are the same type). I have done A LOT of personal sewing over the past 40 years, and for at least the last 25-30 (since I found them), I've only used this type of pin. They draw blood when I get stuck, but that's a small price to pay for sharp, sharp pins!! LOVE THEM!! So, thank YOU for supplying them. I've been running my stock down (they tend to bend easily, then I have to throw them away - arthritic fingers need straight pins!!) while trying to find some more. There are hardly any good fabric shops left here in Adelaide, let alone shops that sell these pins!! All the best with your business. I loved reading your story! May you stay well and happy!! Regards, Sandra Rohde(5)
