I have a new obsession: Needle Minders. The concept is simple. You have a pretty decorative top and bottom magnet. You place your fabric between the two and when you need to set your needle down, it “minds” it for you. Can I just tell you how AWE-SOME this is? I am constantly sticking my needle in my clothing or they fall onto the couch or floor…with a needle minder, I can just place the needle on the magnet and I’m good to go.
Not only are needle minders functional, but they are a beautiful collectible. I really want one in every style! You can find needle minders online at various stitching sites or if you are feeling extra crafty, you could make your own.
