When Amish ladies pin their dresses, they use 27 stick pins, no more, no less… Why is that? What is the significance to 27? —Rebecca J.
I have never heard of anything like that before. We always use however many pins that are necessary, and often hide a few extra in case one gets lost throughout the day and needs to be replaced.
I just counted, and the most I use is sixteen.
