I keep a bit of adhesive-backed magnetic tape stuck on the bed of my sewing machine, off to the right. While I'm sewing and removing pins at the machine, the strip holds the pins out of my way and keeps me from sending them flying. It saves me some time and doesn't interrupt my focus since I don't need to aim for the pin cushion, just move my hand a very few inches to drop the pin on the magnetic strip.

This sounds a good idea but shouldn't be used with a computerised machine as magnets are not to be used near them!Presumably yours isn't?

Winifred, you're correct. Mine's not a computerized machine. Chances are it won't cause a problem because of the distance from anything that holds memory, and the relative weakness of those magnets, but I don't think I'd feel right advising someone with a computerized machine to use it without checking with the manufacturer. Thanks for asking!
