I don't know PR member HeyJane but she had a Classified on PR selling pattern weights I took a chance and bought some and then bought more because I loved them so much!!! Loved them so much I wrote a review about them here

I noticed that HeyJane found more in her husband's machine shop and listed a new classified selling them here

Read the comments below each link I've provided--we all LOVE these weights!!! Really, really, really, if you use weights for cutting, you will also LOVE these!!!

Superficial scratches on stainless steel does not affect performance. So I think you'd be able to use on any and all fabrics without a problem. I think HeyJane is just being cautious with her comments about possibly not using them on thin fabrics. I would not worry about that at all. Especially because my stainless steel pots and pans are scratched horrible but still feel smooth to the touch. Besides, the weights are set on pattern pieces so really it's a non issue.

And HeyJane says you will have to wash the weights--that doesn't matter either because you are still getting the best deal ever--more weights for even less money than before!!! Knob size doesn't matter either. It's that they have knobs that makes them so perfect!!!

Mainly, my reason for promoting them is because I love them so much and want all of you to own them too!

I bought a set a couple of months ago. They are fantastic. Way better than anything I found in my hardware stores. Low profile and good weight. She did us a favor by selling them here!

I don't know where you were Miss Fairchild, but get them while Hey Jane has them! They are so good that for the first time ever I am having fun cutting out my patterns!


Edited to add:

Whoops! Just saw they were all sold pending payments already! Sorry you missed out.

I got some the first time and they are fantastic. Just saw this thread and it looks like I am too late to pick up a second batch!

I got some the first time around; another the second time around and a third set for Christmas gifts this year. I did not take off the plastic bottom or the wrap.They work perfectly like they come and truly help me when working with large sheets of paper to draft patterns. I am so thankful to Hey Jane.

I got some also and they are great. I have three sets, one I made out of fabric circles encasing metal washers, one I bought from Nancy's Notions that are shaped with curves, and straight pieces and these. I use all three, but these are easy to grab and place.

I have way too many yards to count, and I will never use them up, but I will die trying!
