Attachment to a modern sewing machine

Modern sewing machines have plastic casings to which magnets don't adhere. If you still want to attach pins directly to the machine, you need a little trick: Just glue a piece of metal tape discreetly on the sewing machine. Then attach a few small cube magnets to the tape; your pins and needles adhere nicely to the machine and don't fall to the floor.

Alternative without metal tape

Individual elements of modern sewing machines are magnetic. You can take advantage of this by attaching fixing pins with cube magnets directly on the machine. However, there is only limited space to do this.

Magnetic nail plate

Fixing pins and sewing needles can also be stored next to the sewing machine to have them handy. A magnetic idea as well: Glue a self-adhesive disc magnet in a small plate and press on well. And there you have a magnetic fixing pin plate!
Alternatively, you can also purchase a magnetic bowl:

Collecting safety pins

A sphere magnet is a good solution for storing safety pins, which arrange themselves like rays around the magnet.

Attachment on an antique sewing machine

Very old sewing machines (here a Pfaff) are magnetic, which is very helpful: Small metal pieces, which sometimes need to be removed from the machine (also needles), can be directly attached to the machine itself with little magnets. You always have the pieces in view and they can't get lost somewhere in the depths of a drawer.

Attachment to the table top

A sewing machine also needs an original Pfaff wooden table top.
Neodymium magnets are really practical for organizing my working space without drilling dozens of unnecessary holes in the wood. The ruler, tweezers and screwdriver all hang on the iron bracket under the table.
