    I use something similar but a bit larger and store my rotary cutter blades in it too, new and used. The used ones are great for cutting paper projects.

    I bought 4 last year on sale. I love them to keep pins in. Safety, ball head, flat heads, one on cutting table to put squares of fabric for that stamp quilt I hope to make some day.
    I love how you can drop them and they never pop open, unless you open them!
    Thanks for sharing, I had not thought about sharing.

    I see this is an older post but I want to add that I use a container like that and I blue tape the package of the needle I have in the machine, on to the container top. I change thread and quilt on painted fabrics often which sometimes requires a change in needle and I can quickly see what size/which needle is in the machine. If it is a project with days of quilting I may write the date on the tape too so I'll know when the needle was new.

    Don't you just love these boxes....they are the ones that I wrote about in an earlier post. I bought mine at Staples and got some of them at the unbelievable price of 25 cents..on one of their specials...couldn't beat that.I have them for almost everything small enough to fit in them.

    I use a little cabinet that used to hold different sized screws and nails. It has 12 small drawers. Each drawer holds a different sized machine needle or thimbles, etc.
