I have been unlucky enough this past week to purchase some crap products. What has happened to quality control? Name brand sewing notions quality is down the drain!! Admitiy I use basting quilt spray and lots of things bc I don't care for pinning uggg I mean who has time for that. So my needles get gummed up and funky. So I bought some new ones instead of doing what I knew I should and sewing a metal mess inside a pin holder.
