Beyond THRILLED with the quality of the bag and clothesline pins. I purchased with the linseed finish. They have Super grip!! I don't have a photo, but envision this... sheets on the line, and then the Nor-eastern snow storm hits knocking down trees, limbs power outages for days. And then there's the sheets....yep, still on the line unaffected!

I received the “seconds” clothespins and am so thrilled with them. I’ve been using them a few weeks now and love them. Not only are they sturdy and well made but I think they’re pretty too. I’ve looked for well made clothespins on and off for a couple years. Most clothespins that you find nowadays that that claim to be strong have an aluminum spring. These have a steel spring and noticeably thicker wood. I’ve had problems in the past keeping my laundry on the line on windy days, but these do an excellent job holding tight. These pins may seem just a little pricey but are worth every penny!!


Love these clothespins! Come on wind! Just try to blow my laundry off my clothesline now


These clothespins are a simple work of beauty. They feel so different from the cheap version and are solid and functional. These clothespins will last a lifetime!


These clothespins are so strong and can hold so many heavy things on the line besides your regular laundry. We keep chips closed with them too. I love them so much that I just ordered 50 of them again. I mean again because my husband accidentally threw them away yesterday! I had put them in a plastic bag inside by the back door while we cleaned the patio. He thought it was a bag of trash I left for him. They are so special to me and nothing else will do. They are family heirlooms, you know.  


I’ve searched for years for “heavy duty” clothespins and finally found them at the Lady and the Carpenter! These pins withstand 40 mph sustained prairie winds and clothes stay on the line. Great product, fair price, and timely service!

More About Us

In 2015 Lady and the Carpenter was created and Kevin’s Quality Clothespins were launched. After some local success, we attended a Mother Earth News Fair in Albany, OR. The results were staggering; people lined up around the corner for two whole days to purchase our clothespins. Our success allowed Kevin to fulfill his dream and become a full-time woodworker making clothespins and many other beautiful items. We have since made and sold over 400,000 clothespins to people all over the world.

In December of 2020 Kevin went to be with his Jesus. It was a hard road to travel and a steep learning curve but I decided to continue making clothespins. My kids, my family, my friends and my customers have all been deeply supportive for which I am immeasurably grateful. In June of 2021 I made my first clothespins! It was an amazing victory and a bittersweet moment. I am now the Lady and the Carpenter… and surprisingly I am enjoying making these beautiful little creations.

Thank you for joining us on this journey. I hope that you come to LOVE Kevin’s Quality Clothespins as much as we do.
