The magnetic dish in the teddy bear's lap is holding my longarm pins that I use to load my quilts onto my longarm. This dish was a gift from Barb Amrein for my birthday. It is so slick because it not only holds my pins and catches them it I drop them close by. This is not a tool you necessarily buy at the local quilt store, but at your local auto supply store like O'Reilly's, Car Quest, or Auto Zone. I love networking with other longarm quilters. We have so much to learn from each other.
