So what is a Needle Minder? It is an enamel pin that uses magnets instead of a pointy pin. The pretty part goes on the top of your fabric and a second magnet is applied under the fabric. Instead of sticking your needle in your shirt (or what ever solution you have come up with). This Bee Needle minder is 1.25 inches round and made with the hard enamel technique. It comes packaged on a card and would also make a lovely gift for a stitchy friend.
