The Needle Minder has two magnets – one glued to the back of the decorative piece and one that is loose. This way, you are able to place the minder onto your current stitching, sandwich the fabric between the two magnets so you can place your needle close at hand when you are not using it. It also makes the needle minder easy to move around on the cross stitch/embroidery piece and easy to remove from the piece.
I have endeavoured to photograph the needle minder to best represent their colours, but please be aware that colours will vary from monitor to monitor.
Due to being handmade there may be a slight difference in size and finished appearance. Finished size is approximately 1 1/4″ x 1/2″
Each needle minder comes with an instruction sheet on how to use them as well as the following safety message –
It is also important to stress that needle minders are created with strong magnets, so electronicsshould be kept away from needle minders at all times. The memory on electronic devices may get wiped if the magnets from the needle minder get too close. It is even recommended to keep needle minders away from pacemakers because the magnetic pull from the needle minders can stop a pacemaker from functioning properly if it gets too close.
