I bought this as a second magnetic pin cushion. No idea how I dealt with needles and pins prior to discovering these. If you drop pins, run this over the carpet/counter/whatever and BAM they are immediately attracted and are pulled up! I found it does slightly magnetize some of the pins. I can't sew without it now - it's great!
I have used a few times, however, since using my serger more than ever since my grandaughter was born last year, I have found more tricks with serger threading on not having to use it, if possible. One of those notions that I like having around, though.
