Default Have you seen the pin cushions for your finger?

I was in my LQS yesterday and they small pin cushions that fit on you finger like a ring. Don't know how comfortable it would be while actually sewing but they were a cute idea.

I have not seen one like that. I think I would always be bumping it and knocking the pins off.

I've been to some quilting functions where they had those in the goodie bags. You can make one yourself using a bottle cap. Here is a random link to instructions http://flourishingpalms.blogspot.ca/...-tutorial.html
You can google bottle cap ring pin cushion and you will find more.

Have fun!

I have one. It is made of wool. I use it for my self-threading needle when I'm burying knots after quilting or for my needle when I'm doing binding. I like it because I am always setting my needle down or sticking it into something and then forgetting where I put it. Yikes! I'm not sure how I would like a larger one when sewing. I think it would get in the way.

The next thing I'm looking for is a wool wrist one. I would use that style for pins while sewing.

I couldn't get used to mine. I kept my finger pointed out so it would be handy to use but my finger got stiff and ir seemed to always be in the way. I did get a real nice one for my wrist from a friend and I do use that one.

I have friends who use them but I prefer one for my wrist. The guild makes them for the show goodie bags every year.

I have one of these, love it. Really great when you are doing hand sewing. We have a teacher at my local LQS that gives them out at the beginning of classes. Thanks for the Tute
