Items for Sale by Fred's Creative Woodworking


Longarm quilters have been asking me for some time to come up with a magnetic corsage-pin holder that will sit on the bars of the longarm quilting machine and keep corsage pins conveniently placed during attachment of the quilt top to the canvas fabric.  This item was in beta testing for some time and I now have the bugs worked out of it.

The Bar Sitter  has a very powerful, downward focused magnet that will safely attach the holder to the metal bar while you use the corsage pins.  The bottom of the holder is concave to allow it to sit on a convex bar surface. Any bar that a magnet will attach to will work with the Bar Sitter. The magnet is strong enough that it will easily hold the Bar Sitter upright on the canvas-encased bar.  When you roll the bar, simply remove the Bar Sitter and reattach it where you need it to be. Not only will it sit on the bar, I have engineered a flat surface on the bottom that allows the Bar Sitter to sit on a flat tabletop without tipping. The Bar Sitter holds well in excess of 100 corsage pins with their heads up for convenience.  The Bar Sitters are made from your choice of Pennsylvania Black Cherry or Red Oak.

If you own a longarm quilting machine, the Bar Sitter is a must-have for you!

CAUTION: The unit uses magnets for holding power. I can't make them without magnets. Consequently, if you have a pacemaker or any other medical device that may be affected by magnets, please consult your physician and don't use these unless you get an ok from your physician as it may adversely affect the device.


You cat lovers have brought out the best in me! You are aware of the Kitty Kover for the Heads-Up Magnetic Pin Wells. Now, I've produced a Feline Fooler for the Bar Sitter!

Feline Fooler

Left: Bar Sitter with 120 corsage pins
(pins not included).

No longer do you have to leave any of your pins exposed to the feline predator in your home!  Your cat will now be protected from eating your quilting pins while on its forays through your fabric.

The Feline Fooler is a wooden cover that beautifully covers the new Bar Sitter that I have available for longarm quilters.  It completely covers the corsage pins and the Bar Sitter and will rest attractively on your quilting table top. As with the Kitty Kover, the Feline Fooler doubles as a great storage place for transporting your pins when you travel.

You have a choice of either Pennsylvania Black Cherry or Red Oak for the Feline Fooler to match the Bar Sitter. You should purchase both of these together if you are going to get the Feline Fooler to be certain of the fit. If you already purchased a Bar Sitters let me know and I'll tell you what dimensions it has to be to work with the Feline Fooler.
