No need to stop working and push pins into a cloth pin cushion. Ergonomically shaped, this plastic "cushion" fits in your hand and holds and picks up steel pins and safety pins. Never worry about spilled pins again.
I honestly have these in almost every room, not just by my machine. I purchased five because I'm giving them as gifts to nieces who are beginning to sew. Great for waving over cutting table or by machine to pick up "strays"
