Unhappy Handy Notion I cannot find

I recently had a sewing notion--a piece of plastic which attached to the sewing machine with a sticky pad and the plastic was formed to hold the case that holds 5 new sewing machine needles. It was very handy. I always had a fresh needle right there on my sewing machine. You could slide the case out of the formed plastic quite easily and insert a case for another size or style needle. The plastic piece was small and not at all bulky--like I said extremely handy. I was going to sell my sewing machine so I removed this handy item because I wanted to keep it. My home--a 40-ft fifth wheel RV--has a "large black hole" that swallows my precious items and I never find them again. Does my description of this handy notion sound familiar to anyone and might you be able to tell me where I might find a replacement--I just might buy two or three if I can find them. Thank you for your help.

I have not heard of one but it sounds like a handy item to have.

Sheesh, I have spent 20 minutes googling and nothing. Usually I'm pretty good at this. Sorry I couldn't help, good luck!

Good grief, a needle holster! Another notion that looks so handy that I must have it. It certainly looks like what she was describing Nessie.

"By George, you've got it!" That is it. The Needle Holster! I tell you, it is so neat to have a new needle right there in front of you on your sewing machine. Thank you so much. Yes, I am ordering a couple today.

The best price I could find on the web was with "The Borne Quilter" at $3.19. I am so happy you were able to find these for me. I ordered several for me and several for friends--I know they will like them.

How have I never heard of this. What a great idea. I usually end up either forgetting what needle in in the machine, or leaving the package laying out so I know. Thanks for mentioning this. Think I need to order a couple.
