Needle Minders for Cross Stitching

If you've never used needle minders before, it's time to take the plunge – these handy accessories keep your needle close at hand. No more rummaging between couch cushions or scouring the floor for an accident waiting to happen. When you have a cross stitch needle minder, you can pick up right where you left off every time.

At Fat Quarter Shop, you can choose from a delightful selection of magnetic needle minder styles featuring colorful motifs and decorative themes. Whether you'd like to have a needle minder for yourself or give one as a special gift, you'll find the perfect enamel needle minder here.

We have a great selection of needle minders for sale, each featuring a colorful enamel front and a pair of magnets. We prefer to use the better quality rare earth magnets because they provide easy access to your needles but won't leave unsightly marks on your fabric like other types of magnets may.

When you're shopping for your next cross stitch kit, why not pick up a needle minder that matches? Many stitchers find the festive themes of our needle minders a nice pick-me-up, especially when cross-stitching a complex project.

Other Uses for a Magnetic Needle Minder

Experienced stitchers know the importance of keeping track of needles. Aside from the nuisance of trying to locate errant needles, if you're not careful, they could stick you (or another family member) when you least suspect it. Cross stitching isn't the only needlecraft that uses these functional accessories. Here's how others have made use of their needle minders:

  • Embroidering: Along with cross stitching, needle minders are helpful on other embroidery projects like needlepoint and tapestries.
  • Hand-Sewing: An enamel needle minder is very helpful when you're hand quilting, darning clothes or hemming up a pair of pants.
  • Holding Tools: A small pair of embroidery scissors or a needle threader will stick to your needle minder, ready to use at a moment's notice.
  • Machine Sewing:  If you're quilting or working on another project that requires you to use more than one needle size, a needle minder can secure your machine's needle until you need it again.

Frequently Asked Questions About Needle Minders


Following are answers to some of the often-asked questions about the magnetic needle minder (also called a "needle nanny"). Please reach out if you need more information about any of the products you find at Fat Quarter Shop.


Can Needle Minders Hold More Than One Needle?

A needle minder can hold a few needles at a time, which is handy when cross stitching an area with multiple floss colors. Just be mindful that the thread doesn't get tangled when you store the needles on your minder.


Can I Keep the Needle Minder on My Embroidery When I Stow It?

Although your cross stitch needle minder has a strong magnet, your needle can come off in your workbasket when you store it. For this reason, it's recommended that you use a needle case to hold your needles when you stow your work.


Are There Any Safety Issues With a Magnetic Needle Minder?

Your needle minder uses strong magnets to hold your needles in place. Any powerful magnet should be kept away from electronic devices like cell phones. Magnets can wipe the memory if they get too close. Wearing a pacemaker? Be mindful that the magnetic pull can cause a pacemaker to malfunction if the needle minder gets too close.
