Yea or Nay?
My mother has been sewing over pins (in hems and other straight stitch situations) for friggen' ever. My Granny sewed over her pins. As far as I know, Mom's machine has ever been damaged- in fact, only last month she finally got rid of the sewing machine she used to make my own baby clothes with- and I'm 31!
How is it that the needle seems to skip over the pins? Does it hit the pins ever? Does anyone else here sew over pins? I just got a machine and I'm torn. On the one hand, sewing over pins seems so convenient. On the other, it looks like a no-no.
So, I ask you, O wise ones- to do or not to do?
