I have all of the above except coilless safety pins...what the heck are those? lol.
You can get them in the beading section. They don't have that little loop at the end that can get caught in yarn. I use them for marking a point that is on the fabric like where I started decreases or noting which side is the front which is important for some patterns. I actually use them all the time.
So, my mother opted to work an OT shift (she gets paid time and a half or double... = craploads of $.) so I went to Miguels alone. I walked 4 km (they put Miguels in the crappiest places for car-free types like myself here.) I even got lost twice trying to find it (never been to that location before...)

I find that the Michael's here is about the same price as JoAnn's. The real difference is in the selection. Michael's is far superior in selection and has much better sales. I used to use the coupons for books but they no longer allow that. I do try to use them on higher priced items too!
