Very popular with Quilting Guilds!
The lanolin in the wool pin cushion is good for all needles because it keeps pins and needles from corroding and rusting.
The jar base is a convenient place to keep all your odds and ends that you need such as pins needles, thread and tiny scissors.
There is also a safety feature. When in use place the lid upside down on the mouth of the jar to hold the pin cushion and when you are finished, turn the lid with the needles to the inside and screw into place so that the children and pets cannot get hurt by the needles.
