    ZJ, I wish you could share with us the name of that website you alluded to! I’m sure a number of us would love to know.

      Hi Olivia. I hope you found the video to be both informative and helpful. I use Brewer as one of my supplies for my professional quilting business and have an account with them. To be honest, I am not sure what their policy is for selling to individuals. It may be worth looking into.

    I love the butterfly pins. They’re great when I’m sewing with several other sewers on projects. Finding my pins at the end is easy and everyone comments how cute they are!
