These lovely little ceramic needle minders are made for me by Stockwell Ceramics in the Tamar Valley, Cornwall. Each shape is individually cut and glazed making them completely unique. Many are decorated using prints inspired by British textiles, such as those by William Morris.
The magnetic attachment at the reverse allows you to attach the minder securely to the fabric in your frame or hoop and hold your spare needles and pins in place as you work.
For a closer look at the different designs, either click on the magnifying glass on the main image, which will take you to a gallery of all of them, or click on the individual names below.
