These fine bisque needle minders, hand-crafted at Needle 'n Thread, are perfect for adding to your tool box. They are a wonderful way to keep track of multiple needles while you have a project going. They also make excellent gifts for stitching friends.

Because the needle minders are hand crafted, each one is different. Most of the designs are floral or botanical; occasionally, they may feature butterflies or dragonflies. Each needle minder is branded and dated on the back.

Choose the shape and pull strength you desire, and we will send you a unique needle minder (our choice). If you have a preference in design or color (from product pictures), leave a comment on your order and we will try to accommodate. We can't guarantee your design selection, but we will do our best. We promise that your needle minder will be beautiful and functional!

Shape & Pull

These needle minders have either a light pull (suitable for holding needles) or a medium to medium-strong pull (suitable for holding needles, small tools, and small embroidery scissors).

The needle minder is packaged on a mounting card with a magnet on each side of the card. The back of the magnet's mounting card includes more information on uses.

Needle Minders are made with neodymium magnets and small parts. Keep out of reach of small children and pets.

The following shapes & strength are available:

Small square (@ 0.70") - light pull
Small heart (@ 0.75") - light pull
Round - (@ .80" - 1.125") - light pull
Mini Round (5/8") - light pull

Big heart (@ 1.25") - medium pull
Hexagon - (@ 1.25") - medium pull
Big square (@ 1.125") - medium-strong pull

Each needle minder comes in its own clear box.
