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.
Combining lovely enamel artwork with high-quality magnets, the needle minders at Fat Quarter Shop provide the best way to keep track of your needles as you create something amazing. Whether you're buying your first cross stitch needle minder or have been sewing for a while and want one with a fresh new theme, browse to your heart's delight among our colorful selection to find the minder that you love best.
