- Jun 10, 2007Most sewing with pins holding the fabric does not hit the needle but if you
do it can mess up your machines timeing and break the machines needle.
I've taken the chance and sewed over the pins for years but I did break
several needles but now with the more sensitve and or easy to break machines
I pull the pins just before they make it to the foot of the machine. I keep
pin cushin velcroed to the top of my macnine for collecting the pins.
