Needle minders

Needle minders are used to mind your needle when you're not using it. The needle minder can be attached to your needlework (or your clothing) by using the magnets, and you simply rest the needle on the needle minder. When you need the needle again, it is right there, ready for you. Needle minders make a great gift for yourself or someone special.

NOTE: These needle minders use very strong neodymium magnets. If you have a pacemaker or similar device, do not use without first checking with your doctor. Use with caution.

embroidery hoop
Embroidery stand (sitting) and hoop

This useful system has a beautiful embroidery hoop, and a stand that you sit on, leaving hands free to work on your embroidery. They are sometimes known as "fanny frames". The hoop height can be adjusted, the hoop can be flipped up to access the back of the work, and it can be turned. I use one of these systems, and I LOVE it.

You will need to purchase a hoop (or more than one) AND a stand for this system to work. They are sold separately so that you can choose the hoop sizes that are most useful to you.

NB: Does not include embroidery.
