If you are stitching leather, vinyl or any such material that you cannot use pins in for fear of leaving holes that will later show up, use pegs to clamp seams. I use pegs with the little rubber ends so they dont leave marks on clothes & these work particularly well on leather, vinyl etc.

Thanks for the tip. What is a rubber peg and where do you buy them? I've used metal office supply binder clips, but can see the advantage of something softer, such as rubber.

@JDpenelope - i found these plastic pegs with rubber ends at my local homeware store in europe. they were specifically marked 'leaves no marks on clothing' & this was the biggest reason for purchasing however i quickly discovered they work well with leather/vinyl etc. look around your local homeware stores. the old wooden pegs might work too providing they dont have any ridges - its the ridges that leave the marks!!
