Who Else Wants Quality Glass Pins
Won't Snag Your Stretch Fabrics
and Won't Melt Under Hot Iron

For A Bargain Price?




Ask anybody who sews.....

There is NOTHING more frustrating than
having your delicate knits and stretch fabrics....
.... permanently ruined by pin holes and laddering!


"These pins are very smooth, and slide easily into layers of knit fabric and easily removed when sewing your piece. They are a nice change from my normal "quilting" or "dressmaking" pins (which used to damage my knit fabric). The shaft of these stretch pins is finer which makes them easier to use. Worth buying."

- 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.







T hese 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!

"Don't let their dainty looks fool you.... I've been using these pins for a while now, to date none of the glass heads have come off... so if you are heavy handed like me, you know they will last..."

- 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!


"I cannot do without my stretch pins, because most of my projects call for knit fabrics, and I also use them to pin my applique cut-outs in place.... one of their best features is that glass heads do not melt under the heat of an iron. If you have ironed over pins with plastic heads, you know what I mean. The plastic melts, and it is not fun if it sticks to your fabric...!"

- 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:

Alterations:
  • 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)!

"These are the best pins. They are flexible and very thin. I can iron over them and sew over them with no problems!"

- 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?

Delivery


Now, Let's Get Your Order On Its Way To You!

 


How long will it take to receive my order?

All fully paid orders placed by 5pm Monday to Thursday will be processed overnight and ready to send by our warehouse - normally the next day or following business day.

Orders placed on Friday and Weekends will be processed on Sunday night - because our warehouse operates Monday to Friday except Public Holidays.

Once it leaves our warehouse, the actual time frame is up to the delivery services. This can vary depending on your location and road conditions.

Any delivery time estimates shown are estimates only - so please use it as a guide line.

You'll receive a few email updates from our system as your order progresses, so please stay tuned on these!



secure paymentHow will my order be sent?

We use a dispatch system that works out the most efficient way to send your order.

This way the postage works out fair and reasonable, and your parcel reaches you quickly as well - because we know you can't wait!
 
 
That means your parcel may reach you by either Courier or Aust Post.

In general, larger items tend to be delivered by couriers, while small items tend to go by Aust Post.



How is my postage calculated?

Great question.

Depending on weight and dimension, some times we are able to do Flat Rate across Australia, so the postage is the same no matter where you are.

Other times we use the Built-in Calculated system provided by Aust Post, and your postage is calculated based on YOUR location.



Can I get it delivered to my P.O. Box?

Depends on the item (and its dimensions), because Aust Post have size restrictions and couriers are NOT allowed to deliver to a P.O. Box.

Please check with us when in doubt.

If you have nominated a P.O. box, and the item is within Aust Post size, then it will go by Aust Post. Most of the time, this is the case.

When your item is too big, or being sent directly from our supplier, then we need you to provide a physical address so we can send a courier.



Can I get my order sent to a different delivery address? 

Your sure can!

When you check out, you can choose to ship your order to your billing address or a different address.

Simply choose the second option, and then fill in the shipping address of where you want you parcel sent.

Please double check we have Your Correct Address so your order can find its way to you!




What if courier services are not available in my area?

Some locations are outside of courier services....

In these cases we CAN arrange for your order to be deliverd to your local post office.

But please provide us with a street address (street number & name) - even if it is the only Post Office in town - as if it is an office address.

A phone number would help too - this will avoid delays.



What if I need my order urgently?

No worries, we will do our best. Just let us know.

Please give us as much notice as possible - especially for special occasions like birthdays!

In most cases, we CAN arrange an upgrade from Regular Post to Express Post for a little extra.

Please contact us first so we can update your invoice to show the correct amount.



Do you offer combine shipping?
I want to order more than one item...


Sure! Please "Add to Cart" for all the items you want and let the system work it out for you.

If you're unsure, let us know. A quick message is all we need.
 
 
This way we can double check the postage for you. Simple!




Can I pick up my order?

No. Sorry - unless you're picking up furniture directly from our supplier.

Because most of our items are located in a commercial warehouse - with NO public acess.

There is no shop front - because that's how we can pass on the savings to you!

Glass head Stretch pins.

By: 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

The Best Pins!

By: 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
