There comes a point in time when you can’t handle the broken stitches, messed up tension and other little goodies that happen when your sewing machine needle it dull and not working properly anymore.

For some reason I always wait wayyyyy to long before I change it out and usually a whole slew of problems happen before I finally figure out that I’ve been using the same needle for longer than I was supposed to.

Part of my hesitation is where do I put that darn needle?  Or even pins that go bad, get bent or break.

Not a big fan of tossing it into the garbage bag.  Knowing my luck, I’d find that need or pin sometime in the future while taking the trash out.

So- what do you do with your needles?

You keep them in a container…… like a tic tac container.

It’s perfect!

  • The hole is small so if you fumble with it and it drops, you won’t find yourself picking them all up.
  • It’s large enough to hold a lot of pins and needles!
  • It’s a clear container so you can see exactly what’s inside
  • When it’s time to toss it out, those sharp things are still contained and won’t be poking anyone anytime soon.
  • It’s small enough to have a few around- in your sewing kit, travel case if you go on sewing retreats or by your machine…wherever it goes, it’s right there and doesn’t take much space.
