Needle keeper True Friend, 1.5 ins diameter



A needle keeper is a clever sewing accessory that you just can’t do without – it will keep track of your needle for you when you are in the middle of stitching and need to stop for a while. Have you ever put your needle down and forgotten where you put it? Never lose your needle again – simply place it on this magnetic needle keeper, and the strong rare earth (neodymium) magnet inside it will mean that your needle will ‘stick’ to the needle keeper, keeping it safe.

This cute needle keeper design features a gorgeous image taken from a dollhouse scale needlepoint sampler design of mine, with the words ‘A true friend listens with the heart’. The original stitching was done in needlepoint on 32 count evenweave fabric, so the image on this needle minder shows the stitching at about life size. This needle keeper would make a great gift for a special stitching friend!


It comes in two parts – there is a top piece which has a rare earth magnet inside, and a second rare earth magnet on its own. Simply put the top piece on your fabric and place the second magnet underneath your fabric to hold the top piece in place. Place your needles or pins on the top piece to keep them safe, and you’ll always know where they are! The magnets are very strong – they should even hold a small pair of embroidery scissors, or other small metal sewing equipment, such as a laying tool or stitch ripper.

This needle keeper comes neatly packaged, mounted on card, and sealed in a polypropylene bag, suitable for giving as a gift. Please note that the needles and other accessories shown in the images are not included.


It measures 1.5 inches (38mm) diameter.

This True Friend needle keeper contains two very strong magnets. Keep them away from electrical items such as computers, and from heart pacemakers and other medical devices that could be affected by magnets.

This needle keeper is not a toy. It contains small parts, and could cause a choking hazard. Keep out of reach of children. Not suitable for children under fourteen.



Would you like to make a 1:12 scale dollhouse sampler featuring a similar design to this True Friend needle minder? The two items together would make a fantastic gift for someone special. Take a look at the dollhouse sampler kit section of my shop to see the related designs.
