  1. Having duplicates (ie same red clips, in different packaging; even the two seam rippers) on the list is just plain odd. I do like my red clips, have about 125 or so! Also like the brown seam ripper and the yoyo maker.

  2. A tool I love that only Clover has, and I have bought several for friends – the little green Clover embroidery floss threaders. Great for when I am tying quilts, doing red work, and accenting quilt blocks.

    The white handled seam ripper is my favorite one. It fits my hand perfectly and I keep it hand.

  4. I like the clips they seem like they would make binding off a little less painful (I get stuck with the pins holding binding down) . I rarely use my sewing machine to quilt, I am a traditionalist when it comes to quilting!

  5. I love Clover products, especially the red mini and larger green clips. So handy and they really save from pin prickes! Where would sewers and quilters be without the clover products. Thank you for your creativeness.
