    Pins sewn over quite successfully. I have no plans to change.

      Thanks for writing and you make very good points. I make it a strong habit to change my sewing machine needles per ever project, and to a needle appropriate for the project. I have so many pins open in my teaching Studio, that I suppose that is why I don’t experience about which you speak, but I certainly do see that as a valid point. Thanks again for sharing in this discussion.

    I never thought sewing over pins would break my machine. And I often sew over pins, especially when they are holding particularly slippy/fussy pieces together. However, I have ruined a fair number of needles, and even more pins. Sewing over a pin is a good way to nick it. And unfortunately, I often don’t notice a pin is nicked until I slide it into a nice fabric where it snags and pulls threads. Nicked and bent pins are the reason I try to avoid sewing over them.
