I'm constantly fighting the pin box while working on the design wall. I keep the pins behind me on the table... And while I keep a stash stuck right into the wall, they never seem to be where my fingers can grab them easily.
I like to use the tiny applique pins because they won't bend when I stick them into the wall. They are nice and small when I'm ready to go the machine with the piece.
A pincushion ring is the perfect solution!
