You're mid-stitch when an idea hits: a dart along the hem for shape! Don't stop the inspiration flow to search for your necessities. This handcrafted magnetic dish keeps pins (and other small metal items) in one place so you can focus on sewing the next great piece. Jenny Dowd created the dish when her Aunt Doris asked her for an easier way to keep pins together while she quilted. It started as a shallow bowl with a magnet attached to the bottom, but as Jenny tried new variations, she thought: Why not make this functional design beautiful, too? Today, she uses the original concept, but adds a rich glaze to give your workspace a bright pop of color. A wonderful gift for any sewer, it helps them stay focused on the fun stuff. Handmade in Alpine, Wyoming.

Due to the handmade nature of this item, each is unique and will vary.

Jenny Dowd studied sculpture at Kansas State University. When she finished school, she took her unique craft to Alpine, Wyoming, opening a studio in the nature-rich town. Jenny works with a variety of mediums including porcelain, earthenware, and stoneware. A master of glaze, her items emerge from the kiln with bright colors and patterns like on her Magnetic Pin Dish. One of her favorite parts of creating is taking a complex, abstract thought and transforming or distilling it into simple lines and patterns. When she's not crafting functional ceramics, Jenny enjoys creating installations and sculptures. You can find her studio between mountains and rivers in Wyoming.
