Exciting Needle News

Needle Minders by SeptemberHouse

Hello! It's been a wild summer and as we turn a corner into autumn I am so excited to be able to share something brand new with you. Introducing Needle Minders by SeptemberHouse! Four exclusive designs have made their way to the shop shelves this week and they are ready to make your life easier. 

Needle Nanny for hand Embroidery

If you haven't used a needle minder before here is a little overview of how they work:
Each needle minder (also called a needle keeper or a needle nanny) has two parts.

There is a decorative piece that sits on the top side of your fabric. It has a magnet on the back side of it. A second magnet is used on the underside of your fabric. Together these two pieces connect and stay situated on your fabric as you work. When you need to take a break from your project simply rest your needle on the needle minder and the magnet will keep it in place until you are able to start stitching again.

So, do you need a needle minder to embroider? Well, no. I didn't use one for years. One day I decided to make a simple (and ugly) one just to see how I liked it and was hooked from there. Oh my gosh, I have lost countless needles over the years in couch cushions, on the floor and heaven knows where else. It probably wouldn't bother me so much if it was just me who might accidentally "find" those wayward needles but I do feel awful when my husband, kids or my poor cat stumble upon them. A needle minder eliminates that guilt (yay).

Here is another benefit - if you are used to poking your needle in and out of your fabric to secure
it in place while you stepped away from your project then you know how ugly those needle holes can be. A needle minder leaves no holes in your fabric and is an easy tool to stash away in your sewing box. (I keep mine on a file cabinet where they look so cute while they wait to be called up for another mission).

My top priorities when I took these on, was to create a useful tool that is durable and looks great. I went with a bold graphic style and rich colors which make these particularly striking. These are professionally printed - not made of shrink plastic or resin. Additionally they are only available at SeptemberHouse - not made with mass market products like buttons or cabochons.

Watch for a giveaway coming soon to So September where you can win one of these beauties!
