I boycotted pins long ago, they make my bitter!  But staples...you're a genius!  Would not work for everything, but goodness, I can think of many projects I have finished recently that would have went much smoother.  Thanks for sharing!

Layout is the worst thing about sewing for me.

I know this is old, but I use the clover red quilt clips for clothes. I hate pinning.

Ooh, I've heard those work great! I'll have to give stapling a try, whenever I work on fabric next, I mostly use felt for my projects ^^;

you know, it takes practice to make pinning easy, and if you avoid the practice, you'll never get good at it.  I would never staple, pins are SO much easier!  And sometimes weights.  And I can put in sleeves with a single pin.  Practice, Practice, Practice!

And avoid sewing over glue, tape, or other sticky stuff--it can gum up your machine.

Does this include things like Stitch Witchery?

I've never had a problem with stitch witchery or other dry iron-on type adhesives.
