My pincushion eats needles. I take about 8" of thread, double it, and then tie a knot in the two ends together. When I put it in the pincushion, it won't go through the fabric.

Hope this will help someone who has the same problem of finding their needles.

I don't think this one is going to win a "tip of the day" contest from any of the magazines.  LOL  Poor Sam!

I have a magnetic parts grabber from the auto supply store.  It telescopes and has a very strong magnet on one end.  Just keep it away from computers and computerized sewing machines!Nancy's Notions and Clotilde both have similar product.

It's Quilting! You're supposed to be having fun!
