These lovely needle keepers are made in the UK by The Industrious Maker, Gill Flury.

Gill's design process involves the collection of an ephemera of vintage sewing items and packaging which are photographed, drawn from and digitally manipulated to create unique modern sewing accessories with a vintage style.

Made with a vintage cotton reel, pure Shetland felt and a super strong magnet, each one of these needle holders is unique. Pop on metal surfaces to keep your needles handy, on its side or even upside down the needles stay in place. The luscious thick felt is also great for minding your extra needles on the side.

Please note, each cotton reel is unique and will vary slightly in its condition and the colour shown on the label, some labels may have creases in them but this is part of the vintage charm and history of the object.

Contents not included, shown here with our Tulip Embroidery Needles and shizuku pins. You could even use them to store our tiny scissors!

IMPORTANT: The magnet is very strong and should not be placed near to items that could be affected by magnets such as pacemakers and mobile phones. Keep away from young children.
