I have never been able to find a needle minder that I loved, so I created my own line. I hope you love it! This design was created by Morgan Julia, is exclusive to our shop, and is copyrighted. It is one-of-a-kind! If you're interested in how I designed my needle minders, I have a whole blog post on it that you can read here.
For this specific oyster, I took a version of this sketch I had done awhile back on my iPad. I changed up the colors, cleaned it up, simplified it, and turned it into a needle minder! We will have a canvas version of this design launching in a few weeks.
What is a needle minder?
If you’re new to needlepoint or have never heard of a needle minder, let me give a little background. A needle minder is a magnetic pin that adheres to your needlepoint canvas. It can be used for any craft that involves needles, not just needlepoint. Because it is magnetic, it can hold your needle while you are not stitching to ensure that you never lose your needle. These are very useful since needles have a tendency to go missing. The best part is that you can continue to use your needle minder from canvas to canvas. The magnet on our needle minders is incredibly strong so you don't have to worry about your needle falling off.
How do you use it?
There are two parts to this needle minder: the ginger jar front, and the magnet backing. To use this needle minder, you lay the front on the top of your canvas. Then you carefully slide the magnet behind your needlepoint canvas. The needlepoint canvas is sandwiched between the front and the back of your needle minder. The magnet is incredibly strong, so when you need to put your needle down simply place it on the front of the needle minder. The magnet on the back is strong enough to hold your needle on the front of the canvas.
If you're wondering how to use one, I have an IGTV video on my Instagram!
Do you make custom needle minders?
Yes, I do! I will work with you to make a custom one. I'm happy to work with designers, shops, stitch clubs, or anyone else who is interested! There is a design fee involved as well as a minimum order quantity. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information!
If you have any other questions, please don't hesitate to email or DM me. We hope you love these as much as we do!
