You might remember that I recently have done reviews for a few sewing notions…The Third Hand Binding Tool and the Blade Saver Thread Cutting Tool. All of them are creations of Heather at Purple Hobbies.
Heather and I were chatting and she asked if I was interested in trying out an other notions her company offers. I check her site and decided I would try the magnetic pin cup.
I was looking for something for my long arm pins. I previously kept them in this…
This is what a mechanic might use to hold tools it’s magnetized and the pins stay in place. What I don’t like about it is that the pins go every which way so often when I go to pick up a pin I get stabbed by a pin facing the opposite direction.
The other thing I don’t like is that pins go on the back side of the piece. They magnetize there and when I go to pick it up, again, I get poked. Those pins that attach on the bottom side also fall off easily and land on the floor.
The Magnetic Pin Cup was worth a try… It comes like this…
It can expand to this to cover the pins.
It’s great that the pins can be truly contained especially if you like to take pins to retreats and classes or if you’re like me and have grandkids around.
I…loaded the pins. I loved that all the heads of the pins were facing up. No more poking myself on that account.
I collapsed the outer portion for easy access to the pins. I tested it out and the magnet is strong enough to hold on the bar of my longarm. PERFECT! That’s just what I needed it for.
It’s easy access to my pins. The heads are facing up. No stabbing my fingers.
When it’s time to put the pins away, I can just pull up the outer ring, twist it in place…
…and pop the lid on.
I’ve been using my magnetic pin cup for a couple of weeks now and so far, I love it.
Heather has increased her 10% discount for you to a 20% discount. How cool is that. If you go to her site, Purple Hobbies (HERE is the link) you can get 20% off anything you buy if you use the code JoSentMe. (type it in as all one word)
I am so impressed with Heather. She is building her company by manufacturing all of this by coming up with designs and creating them with 3-D printers. Make sure to check out her about page as it’s really quite interesting. She is truly a small business making big steps into the quilting world.
I have also reviewed The Third Hand Binding Tool and the Blade Saver Thread Cutting Tool. I loved both of them as well. So far, there isn’t a single thing from the site that I wouldn’t recommend. All of the products are two big thumbs up!!
I’m just thrilled that her products are good quality items that I can totally put my stamp of approval on!! I also love that her items are very affordable and perfect to gift to friends. Go check her out!
