I use a special broom (which hairdressers uses in their salon to sweep the hairs from the floor)to sweep my studio I put a magnetic piece on the opposite side of the side which I sweep so I can clean the floor from fallen threads and my pins are stuck to the magnetic piece and are easely to remove .

If you have one of those magnetic wrist cuff pin holders, you can tie a tape measure to one of the cuff ends and dangle the magnet across the floor. That way, no stooping at all.

What a wonderful idea! I can finally stop crawling on my knees with a magnet. Thank you, Janice

What a great idea. I'll have to remember this one for when my DS8yo gets too old to go "treasure hunting" with a big magnet in my sewing room.
