Get steel pins if you decide to go that way. Do this for two reasons... They are stronger and bigger and will stay sharper than nickel pins. But most importantly _when_ (not if but when) you drop the container of pins on the floor you can sweep them up with a magnet. That will save you hours of time on your knees trying to separate the pins from the dog/cat/gerbil hair.
