The Tip Jar
Needle keepers are usually used by needlepointers and cross-stitchers to hold their, y'know, needles. But since they're really just magnets, they can be used for lots of things! Attach it to your shirt and you can hold metal darning needles or cable needles. They can hold the tightening tool for interchangeable needles. You can even use them to hold a few pins while sewing. You can even hold nails or drill bits when doing stuff around the house. Anywhere a small magnet would be helpful, you can use a needle keeper.
All regular classes are currently on hold until we can safely seat up to 6 students in the classroom. We'll let y'all know when we can offer them again. Until then, we're offering most of our class material in private lessons.
