    Way too many times!

  2. Kathy says:

    I have lost count how many times I have stuck my self with a pin! It is a great project if I don’t get blood spots on it! Incidentally, I have also sewed over my fingers several times…….talk about an owie!

  3. Kim Sitmer says:

    pin pricks come with the territory, if you sew you get pin pricks

  4. Nancy Van Deusen says:

    Too many times to mention…Thousands, maybe millions.

  5. BJMarley says:

    I lost count years ago. When I am working with white fabrics, I keep hydrogen peroxide handy.

  6. Ellen Mills says:

    I have wounded myself so many times that I have just accepted it as part of the hobby My husband is totally freaked out when he finds a pin or needle in the floor, he is sure it can kill him if he steps on it!!

  7. Marie P says:

    Wow, I am always poking myself with pins, no matter how careful I am. I have finally wised up and use safety pins on something I will be trying on. I am also always checking for blood on my projects…I poke myself at least a dozen times a day. The clips are a fantastic idea. Thanks for the giveaway :)

  8. LeAnne says:

    Way too many to count!

  9. Everytime I pin up pants to hem, I have pin marks all over my fingers.

  10. Mama Lusco says:

    Too many to count!

  11. Karen says:

    probably once a week

  12. Ann Hudson says:

    Whoa…in the last 50 yrs… which is how long I’ve been sewing.. I’d estimate around 233,999 times! =) Wonder I have any fingertips left!

  13. Evelyn says:

    I fortunately haven’t gotten stuck by a pin because a sewing teacher from long ago taught me industrial sewing techniques which save time by eliminating the use of pins.

  14. Chuck says:

    I can’t count how many times. Must be None.

  15. Lynn H says:

    I don’t think that numbers go up that high. If I’m not stabbing my fingers, I’m reaching across a pinned article and wind up with it attached to my arm or wrist or….sometimes I lean across and wind up with a pin in my upper torso area which SHOULD NEVER BE acquainted with ANY pin! I’m starting to think that my magnetic personality is drawing those pins into my orbit!

  16. Kathy bruce says:

    Oh the times ive said ouch:-(

  17. Linnea says:

    I have poked myself many times over the years. Too many to count!

  18. Carolyn H. says:

    I can’t sew without poking my fingers with a pin! Can’t count the number of times I’ve done it in over 50 yrs. And I always manage to draw blood-more like harpooning than poking!

  19. vickie blose says:

    today none.but just ready to go finish one last purse for a friends daughter,so i am expecting to have a few under my breath words today for those pesky little stabbers.

  20. Jeanne says:

    It would be depressing to even try to count…in the past year alone…..have a few wounds now left over from a bulky quilting project that I was binding just last week which had way more pins in it that I usually use! I don’t use a lot of pins most of the time, but those long quilting ones are wicked!

  21. Fawn says:

    More times then should be allowed. The last one was stepping on a pin after I dropped the jar on carpet.

  22. Suzanne says:

    I’m clumsy… it happens on a regular basis. :)

  23. Kayce Crews says:

    I’ve wounded myself at least 10 times with a pin.

  24. Lisa Gasparino says:

    Way to many times to even count

  25. Maggie says:

    well, let’s see, how long have pins been around. that’s probably how many times. ouch!

  26. Cat says:

    Ouch no more
