This pin cushion is absolutely perfect. It is filled with emery thus it is very heavy, thus very stable. The workmanship is very good. I needed a emery pin cushion as sometimes my pins become "pitted." I will order from this shop again.

This is the sweetest pincushion. I love having it on my work table, I love beautiful and practical items and this fits both areas. The sharpening material inside keep my pins in perfect condition and also right there. The size is great and a good weight as it does not lift when you pull a pin out. I would definitely purchase another for my self or as a lovely gift.

These are seriously the best pin cushions i have ever used! Well worth every penny, and actually saves me money! I sew pretty much all day for my small business, and go through a ton of pins that dull quickly. When I found these pin cushions, I thought they were so cute and pretty- and they said they sharpened so I figured I'd give them a try. Not only are they well made and adorably gorgeous, but they are filled with sharpening powder. Every time you put a pin back in the cushion, it helps keep it nice and sharp!
It also saved me from delayed projects and a huge headache by sharpening my machine needles in a pinch! I use an expensive sewing machine that use pricey hard-to-find needles that have to be ordered online. I primarily use neoprene foam which dulls needles really quickly and have to be replaced often. I switched my dull needle out for my last one, placed an order for more, and immediately broke it. The new needles wouldn't arrive for a week, and my only other needle was too dull to work. Then I got the idea to try sharpening the needle with the pin cushion! I spent about 5 minutes poking the needle into the cushion over and over, and it sharpened it enough to work!
Now I extend the life of my expensive machine needles using this beautiful pin cushion! If you sew with any amount of regularity, this is the absolute best pin cushion!

Very beautiful and very well made. This is a beautiful pincushion to sit next to me while I sew. Even more beautiful than the picture! Solid and weighted so it won't roll around. I had some issues with the shipping, but we finally got it straightened out. I believe it was a burp in the system. I would highly recommend this product and would purchase again!
