Hemming Clips - Available in Switzerland?

I'm looking for hemming clips - longer stainless steel clips about 10 cm (4 inches or so), marked with cm or inch fraction measurements.

An example:
https://www.amazon.de/gp/product/B07...XQ0EDSD8&psc=1

They are all over Amazon (UK and DE)... but not available for delivery to Switzerland.

I can't find them from any of the usual Swiss sewing supply sources.

So fellow sewers, do any of you know where to find these either in Switzerland or deliverable (reasonably) to Switzerland?

Many thanks.

Re: Hemming Clips - Available in Switzerland?

Interesting... I didn't even know that such a thing existed. Apparently, they're called "Saumklammern" in German.

Jim 2007 beat me to it... I was also going to suggest looking on ebay.ch. It looks like they have some there, such as these (shipping to CH from Germany):

Re: Hemming Clips - Available in Switzerland?

Thanks everyone!

These little thingamajigs are a godsend if you are doing curtains or anything with meters and meters of deep hems. Especially if using a sheer material where pins would leave marks.

Re: Hemming Clips - Available in Switzerland?

Update:

Suddenly these clips are available on Amazon (DE) for shipping to Switzerland.

Unfortunately, the 'nicer' clips marked with both centimeters and inches still won't ship here, but as long as you are happy with inches, marked in quarters, these are now available.

These clips are not as nice as my old hemming clips, they are a lighter metal and a tad sharper-edged, but what is there available today that is still the quality of yesteryear?

These will do in a pinch.

Re: Hemming Clips - Available in Switzerland?

I got them in plastic, they work well, are small. I also saw them in Manor. I am used to pre-stiching but clips save time on simple straight stuff. I got mine for 8 fr in Tchibo. Manor were the same, 2 sizes though.

I've got every accessory for my sewing machine from Bernina representatives/shops.

Have you checked this out?
