The Twist and Select Needle Case

I absolutely adore my Twister, which is a lipstick-style magnetic needle storage case made by Pym.

It holds all my current needles and keeps them safe when not in use.  Thanks to Brenda's Needlepoint Studio, I've discovered that Dritz has two different needle cases that are similar in style.

Here is what Brenda found and chose to use.  It appears to hold needles up to two and a quarter inches long, which means it might not hold the longest beading needles but it'll handle tapestry needles just fine.

After a little more hunting I found Dritz's larger lipstick-twist case.  It also is the same length.

Thanks, Brenda.  Options are always good as no one product suits every needlepointer.

Thank you for writing about the larger Dritz twist and select case. Did not know they existed. Will have to order one now.

Let me know what you think. I am sticking with my Twister for now but I'm open to other needle holders.

I use a turned wood needle case sold at Needle in a Haystack. It's pretty and feels good in my hand, but I have to be careful when "pouring" my needles out to find the one I want. For my current project, I have tapestry needles and beading needles in the case. I love my needle case, and it protects my needles from my cats and vice versa. Needleworkers need their toys!

We certainly do need our toys. And the right tool makes the handwork much easier!
