    I saw it at Hancock Fabrics. Just my opinion, but I wasn't impressed. It seems to be very cheaply made, and I don't think it would last long. It would be another thing that sat in the corner and would never be used.

    On the site it is priced at $45, and that is a sale price from the regular price of $59.99 :shock: :shock: :shock:
    Did you watch the video...this thing is huge!

    The sales lady was talking that up to me last time I was in. Besides taking up a lot of space for a "pincushion" it also takes special pins (sold separately). No thanks.

    ROFL!! Laughing hysterically!!

    Remember my thread about my engineer husband not listening to my directions to make me a large ironing board.

    I could only imagine him coming up with something like this if I told him I needed a "pin cushion".

    I think this gadget wins the Rube Goldberg Award of the Quilting world.

    It is a challenge for Hancock Fabric stores to see who could sell the most.

    Well floks, its an old idea! My quilting buddy was sorting out MIL's sewing supplies and found a gadget that did the same thing...from the 60's! Took us awhile to figure it out...lol
    Everything old is new again, but I do admire the "special pins" part. Don't see myself investing in one.

    I like that it even comes with a "paper funnel"!

    LMBO! She is so freaking chearing. I wonder if she really believes what she is saying.

    My pins are in a magnetic bowl from Harbor Freight. I have no problem picking them out.

    We said ALL of those things when they first introduced them in the store. And that paper funnel is not a funnel, it's a shaped piece of paper.

    Did you see the size of that thing??? And you have a push a lever to get each individual pin. I usually just dump a bunch on my project and grab and pin as I go. But I guess if you're someone who is constantly sticking themselves, this might be a real good thing!

    It is huge! Looks like another item to jam up like my office stapler or my basting gun. I think I'll pass.

    And don't forget you need to buy 4 batteries too!

    I went to the site & watched the video demo - what a waste of $$, time & space. Its 15 times the size of my magnetic pin holder, & takes more time to fill then its worth, IMHO.
