Re: Hemming Clips - Available in Switzerland?

I've been looking for hemming clips and the type called Wonder Clip as well. I brought my sewing machine across from Scotland for doing basic things like shortening OHs trousers (costs a small fortune in Basel dry cleaning shops ) and have a watched a number of YouTube tutorials where people use these instead of pins, so I thought they'd be a useful thing to have in my workbox.
I'm a pretty 'old school' sewer, made even more old fashioned because I stopped sewing for a good decade plus and only recently got into the hobby again.

I had no idea Wonder Clips existed until I started watching Youtube videos a few months ago to try to remember how to sew. At first they seemed like an interesting curiosity, but not much else.

Well, now I am a convert. I use them exclusively for making masks. If I go back to more complex sewing or tailoring, though, I imagine I'll still need pins for laying out and some of the more fiddly sewing where clips are too bulky. But on the whole, I love Wonder Clips

Huge plus to Wonder Clips: I don't worry about dropped pins and curious dogs.
