I have a confession to make: I did not use magnetic needleminders to hold my needlepoint for a long time. I would just stick my needle into the unstitched margin of the canvas when I wasn’t stitching.
I now have the zeal of a convert and I have even found some new, non-needlework, uses for them. I like these little bits of art on my stitching.
In a recent blog post Mary Corbet shows us several more extremely useful ways to use them.
But not everyone feels the same way about them. Mary Corbet has found that whenever she writes about them she gets lots of negative comments.
Oh, and that useful tip. We’ve redone the master closet and put many items into black zippered IKEA storage. You can’t see what’s there. I’ll be making labels and putting them onto cut up file folders. Glue a plain magnet to the back to hold it to the box. Put the decorative side on the inside, so you will be able to find it against the black. How cool is that?
