A couple of weeks ago while at the LQS I saw the Magnetic bowl being sold as a pin holder. Now I've one of these for when I'm working on my truck or something around the house with screws. The one I had was a little larger than what the LQS selling. But I noticed the price seemed kinda high, $8! The larger one that I bought didn't even cost that much. So I was off to Harbor Freight. And looky here, less than half the cost of the LQS. You can buy them online here, but there's shipping costs. I bet you can find them at the auto parts store for less, maybe even Wal-mart. When I tossed my pins in the dish they just automatically arranged themselves like this....A bouquet of flowers! This is so handy when pinning a quilt the longarm.
Super strong magnet even holds on upside down.
I think I'm going to get a second one for my smaller piecing pins.
Until next time "Quilt out of Your Comfort Zone!"
