Another Tool You DIdn't Know You Needed

Needlepoint Joint recently posted on their Facebook page a photo of a Needle Tugger, distributed by Rainbow Gallery.  

These are available in silver or gold apparently.

I've rarely seen these in person and don't own one but I know how they work.  The two metal barrel shapes are magnetized.  You clip the tool to your scissors or the zip on your stitching bag.  When you need to use it, pull on the plastic tube and the magnets part.  Stick your needle in the free end of the plastic tube and pull to get the needle through the canvas and layer of thread.  Stick the magnet end back on the clip end's magnet and it'll wait safely on whatever you clipped it to until next time it is needed.

It's really quite clever how it works.
