Today I saw an Emery pincushion for sale. I understand that it is filled with emery, which is different than one of the more popular type of pincushions that are out there which feels like something else....fiberfill perhaps?
Can someone tell me the advantages and/or disadvantages to storing pins in an emery pincushion?
Does anyone also store their sewing needles in an emery pincushion? I think one of the reviewers said something about doing that.
