Fun Friday Giveaway: Lighted Pin Picker Uppers

I recently picked up two Lighted Pin Picker Uppers, one for my sewing room and one for my husband.  We both have fallen in love with this very handy tool.  And, today three lucky quilters have a chance at winning one for their very own.




These lightweight pin picker uppers compact to a small size, yet easily extends to a 28" reach with a cushion grip handle to prevent possible slipping.
There is also a bright LED light that can easily be turned on or off.  And the part that has the light is magnetic, making it a breeze to pick up pins that have fallen on the ground.  No more bending down to pick up a pin for me.    Plus, it is so much easier to see the pins on the floor with this LED light  too! 

This product is really a very reasonable price, making this a great product for quilting, sewing and even embroidery enthusiasts, along with those that may want to pick up screws, nails and other parts that "garage" hobbiest may drop, from time to time.  My DH can certainly vouch for this product too, but admittedly he doesn't call it a "pin" picker upper. 

Did I mention a giveaway?  "Toys for Quilters" is our Fun Friday Sponsor today and they have generously offered 3 pin picker uppers to be given away to followers of SewCalGal.  But, first, I want to share a little insight with you about this company.

Their motto is  "quilting is the Toy Department of Life" and their mission is to bring fun and unique toys to quilters.   They offer a variety of Quilting and Sewing Notions, Tools and Toys for sale, at all reasonable prices.  And, they have some yummy fabric too!


Before you enter any giveaway, I hope you'll read my post "WANTED: Quilters that do not win in giveaways" for insights on what you can do to increase your chances of winning. This list is updated periodically, as I encounter various no-reply bloggers (aka those that can't win at giveaways as they can't be contacted).
If you would like to win one of these very handy Lighted Pin Picker Upper,  simply leave a comment on this post.   

Want an extra entry?  Visit "Toys for Quilters" to take a look at their wonderful products.  Come back here and leave another comment telling me what your favorite product is at Toys for Quilters.

On the Toys website, I LOVE LOVE LOVE the black and white zipper fabric! Very cute!

Jennie P. said...

That looks like a super tool to have on hand!

Jennie P. said...

I think my favorite toy would be Thread Scissors. I need a pair of those!

Janet O. said...

Very interesting little gadget. I can see where I might have to protect such an item from being spirited away (or just buy DH his own).

Patty C. said...

Oooooo I really need one. I drop my pins all the time. Please include me. What a wonderful little gadget!
Heading to all the links to look around!!!!!

My favorite toy - It' now that lighted pin picker upper! And of course scissors ;)

Mary said...

I love the magnetic pin tray at The Toy Store - I have 2 of them already, but thinking I might need a third one. I have several kinds of pins and like to keep them separate. A magnetic tray for each type of pin would be handy.

shez said...

what a great idea.xx

Nina Lise@Mrs Moen said...

What a perfect tool; all the feet in my house would apreciate one of these!

June D said...

I would like to win one of the Lighted Pin Picker Uppers! Thank you for letting me put my name in the hat!

Anne said...

I was intrigued by this toy last time you posted about it. Thanks for a chance to win.

Ann Marie @ 16 Muddy Feet said...

We have one similar to that. There is a long rod with a magnet on it that comes out of the center of the light part to pick things up. This one is better though, the light is WITH the magnet part!!! Great find!!

Ann Marie @ 16 Muddy Feet said...

I love lights like these great find!

Ann Marie @ 16 Muddy Feet said...

I love the cat and dog tape measures, and the itty bitty little scissors too!

ledamewood said...

Congratulations to Sally for winning the Sushi roll. I would love this gadget, hopin' I'm the winner this week.

ledamewood said...

Visited Toys - I think my favorite is the blue caddies.

Lisa Marie said...

Thanks for introducing me to this website. That pin picker upper looks handy.

Lisa Marie said...

I checked out the products on the Graphic Impressions website. The little light that you wear on you finger looks interesting. Also, there are many unique fabrics in the Geometric and Abstract category.

Judith said...

My back is so bad that I cannot bend over to pick up pins. It would be very handy
to have one of the pickers (and lighted to boot). Thanks for thinking of us.

Karen said...

What a great idea ! Thanks for the free giveaway - TGIF !

Karen

Purl Buttons said...

I sure could use one of these; thank you for making it available! Now I am off to the TOYS site.

Purl Buttons said...

I like the mini miracle light from the Toys website.It seems like a bright idea.

Judith said...

Graphic Impressions has some very neat "Toys." Besides the pin picker upper, I especially like the round light sticker upper and the lint/thread remover.

Eileen said...

I have a telescoping magnet wand, but it no longer telescopess,because it broke and my dh somehow put it back together. I love it. A new one, with a light, sounds wonderful!!
thanks for the chance to win.

Eileen said...

I like the headlight and the one for the finger.

Linda at Roscoe's Ma said...

What a cool online business! Thanks for a chance to win this great gadget!

Rhonda said...

What a great idea. Would love to have one of these. :). Thanks for the chance.

sally said...

The lighted pin picker upper sounds very useful! I would be delighted if I was picked for one! Thanks....

Gene Black said...

Ha ha... I often call quilting tools "my toys!" I would love to win one of these

sally said...

I like the lighted, magnified tweezers in the smaller size. That seems like a very useful combination tool! Thanks again for the chance to win the lighted picker upper tool!

Gene Black said...

I think I like the "Mini Miracle Light" but I would want more information than is on the website I also like the Shed Organizer.

sao said...

This is one of the BEST tools that I have seen.....I HOPE I WIN!!!! Thanks for FUN FRIDAYS....I look forward to it!!!!

sao said...

I love the storage boxes - but the MINI MIRACLE LIGHT is really my favorite!

Josie McRazie said...

When I bought my New Sewing machine I wrote in my blog that the ustrction (AKA instruction) book said it WAS NOT A TOY... I disagree!! LOL I may not be a child anymore (well kind of) but it is a toy for me!! LOL!! I love toys! hehe

Brita said...

I like that Lil Sucker at the toy store, great idea!

Brita said...

And this lighted picker-upper would be so handy -- I would use my magnet on a stick a lot more, but first have to find the pin. That means bending over and feeling around in the carpet. Sheesh!

yarngoddess said...

Not only do I need the picker-upper, I think I need a Stick-it, too. Life is not complete without toys.

Anonymous said...

What a great place to find toys. Love it. This pin picker upper looks like a very handy toy. It seems like it would make it easy to get the pins up off my carpet.

Diane said...

You find the most interesting toys! Thanks for sharing about Toys for Quilters.

landscapelady said...

My husband would love this tool, maybe he wouldn't be stepping on my pins so often :-) LOL

Jacqueline said...

Whoo hoo I would love to win this "toy".. I also like the lighted, magnified tweezers.. the eyes are getting old don'tcha know.

Thanks for the chance

Agnes B Bullock said...

Love the lighted pin picker upperss! Checked out theri website and the headlight- which you wear like a cell phone earpiece, would be great- can never seem to get enough light when I quilt

DachsiesWithMoxieMama@gmail.com

KaHolly said...

Now, isn't that a handy little gadget? It would be great for finding those lost pins in the carpet!

KaHolly said...

I liked the magnifier tweezers and all of the novelty tape measures.

Deb said...

What a neat idea! Thanks!

Allison C said...

Looks like a useful tool! I always worry about not seeing pins and having two dogs running around my sewing area.

Quilter in the Gap said...

This looks like an awesome tool that I would have to hide from the Hubster!!

Michele Bilyeu said...

What fun! I would love to light my way to lost pins! Thanks so much for all of the tips and good links and for the give away!

Quilter in the Gap said...

My favorite toy they carry is the Reducer! I have one that I got out of a Cereal Box many many years ago and people are always asking me where they can get one when they see me use it. Well....now I know where to send them!!!! Thanks for this!!

Ray and Jeanne said...

Id love to win this! Now I'm on my way to Toys for Quilters - never been there before and I can't wait any longer! ~Jeanne

paulette said...

Oh, man, do I NEED one of these gadgets!! I hand sew every evening and in the morning I find pins ALL over the place! My fear is that the pins will get lodged under the mats and when the automatic sliders of our 5th wheel close (at the end of our stay)pins will clog the system and my name will be MUD!! I could stick one of these gadgets way DOWN and catch all the stray pins...
Think I'm going to check out JoAnn's for one of these gadgets!!...but thanks for the chance and more importantly THANKS for telling us about these handy tools!!
Paulette

karenfae said...

I would love a chance - I have not seen these and could have used one a couple days ago when my pins spilled out on the floor.
Karen

krisgray said...

Cool! I love all the toys - and they aren't just for quilting!

B Greene said...

I have never seen one of these gadgets with a light!! Must have!

B Greene said...

I like the Lady Bug Mini-Vac from Toys for Quilters.

Suzanne said...

You mean I won't have pins stuck in my foot as I walk by my sewing area in the dark?
Lovely.

krisgray said...

Would love to try "The Pointer" while hand sewing, especially in the car.

Anita in Florida said...

Woweeee....what a fantastic invention...a gotta have it for sure!

robin said...

What a cool tool! I think I need one. I've always been VERY careful with where I put pins, but recently have started teaching my 14 year old daughter to sew, and she's NOT very careful where she puts them. I'm finding them everywhere.

Anita in Florida said...

I gotta go back and look closely at the Fabrics section...saw some lovelies!

robin said...

Fun looking at the nifty gadgets at Toys For Quilters. I thought the "Inflatable" Pincushion was intriguing. Ha!

FarmNana said...

A great tool for my new studio! Thanks for the giveaway!

Kristin said...

I think the holdiit would be a great companion for the lit pin picker upper.

Snoodles said...

Congratulations, Sally! This looks like such a helpful tool....thanks for the chance to win!

Snoodles said...

I looked around over at their site - what a fun store for quilters! The magnifier-tweezers looked like they would be very helpful, but I really love the kitty cat tape measure! So cute!

Shelley said...

With my failing vision and tendency to drop pins, this tool would not only be a great quilter's toy but a foot saver!! A lighted one,,,now why didn't I think of that!

Gwen said...

Congratulations, Sally! Enjoy your sushi! ;-) Thank you for the chance to win this handy-dandy tool!! I know from personal experience how important it is to make sure that you pick all dropped pins-- immediately... (stepped on a needle, it broke off in my foot-- had to have surgery to remove it *after* waiting a week - didn't know it was in there- saw a red line running up my ankle- worrying about tetanus! What an ordeal!!!_)

Mom2four said...

I have been looking all over for this tool!! If I don't win one, I will go buy one for sure!

Mom2four said...

I love those cute button bracelets at UQuilt!

Gwen said...

Toys for Quilters is a fun spot! They have lots of neat gadgets and gizmos! :-) Lots of things to love-- but one that I *really* love a lot-- just because it's so cute-- is the cluck,cluck scissors! :-)

CaroleM said...

That would be so handy! Especially for the area under my sewing table.
carolejm at gmail dot com

Yvonne said...

That looks like the handiest gadget I've seen in quite a while!

Cynthia Stockdon said...

I would love one of these and that is a great idea to give hubby one too. Mine is always dropping small screws etc. in the garage.

Marilee said...

Just what I need! I broke my right arm just before Christmas and I'm on an extended four week recovery wearing a brace. This would help so much.

Lee said...

What a cool idea! If I dont win i will buy one! thanks for the review and the giveaway.

Marilee said...

I just checked their website and am pleased at how reasonable this handy tool is, yay!

Jean said...

What a cool little gadget! Thanks for the chance to win!

Lee said...

I like their magnifying tweezers 3.5".

Anonymous said...

That is super cool. Would be great for someone who is physically challenged and bending over to pick up a pin would be outright dangerous (I have a friend in mind!) Thanks for the opportunity! Doreen @ treadlemusic.wordpress.com

Nancy D. said...

I needed that the other night when I dropped a pin but couldn't find it because it was too dark under my sewing table.

Anonymous said...

Just visited the "Toys for Quilters" site. Wow! At first glance the "Cutie Patootie Erasers", but that "Inflatable Pincushion" is a hoot!!! Doreen@ treadlemusic.wordpress.com

Nancy D. said...

I need the Peeper Cleaner! The Headlight looks like it'd be useful too.

Doreen said...

One added note: Their (Toys for Quilters) site will keep a body occupied for a long time. The fabric categories/choices will save me a 'ton' of time in the future! Thanks, again!!! Doreen

Donna~~ said...

That pin picker upper is a great idea--I am forever knocking things down where I can't reach them!

Anita said...

Well, what do you know...I thought that's what my kids were for! LOVE it and the light too! Thanks for a chance to win a great prize!

Donna~~ said...

Looks like they've a bunch of unusual tools/toys. I'd love to have a reducer--think it would be handy for getting some perspective in my little sewing room. Thanks for hosting another lovely giveaway!

Anita said...

I took a look around their site...I think the headlight would be interesting...though I don't know how comfortable it would be hanging on my ear. They have a lot of fun things. Thanks for sharing. =)

Linda V said...

Thanks for the giveaway. I love the name "Toys for quilters". Very clever.

Linda V said...

I like the mesh bags over the Toys for quilters. Thanks again!

Thanks for the introduction to a new to me place to shop. I can't wait to go check it out! The pin picker uppers sound like super handy tools!

Thanks for the giveaway! I might give it to my guy if I win since it could be useful in his shop as well as in my studio!

Thanks, Joanna

What a cool tool!! Thank you for the chance to win this handy dandy item!!

Carolyn

Lynn said...

What a great idea - will see the pins that are hiding in the dark under the sewing table and not have to get down on hands and knees to pick them up.

Lynn said...

I think the beaded zippered cell phone holder is so cute and what a great small bag to carry in your pocket.

Pam said...

What a nice gadget, it sure would stop me from stepping on fallen pins!

Pam said...

Such a cute site ...I loved the tape measures.

Heather said...

For a girl that spiller her pin container all over the place just last week, this would sure come in handy.

Sallie said...

What a great giveaway! Thanks for the chance!

Dar said...

I could really use the handy lighted pickerupper. Thanks for the chance to win it.

Sallie said...

I love the geometric and abstract fabric, and the dots fabric. Swirls Fabric-Green-Blue is one of my favorites.

Dianne said...

This looks like a tool I'd really use. Is this my lucky day?

Dianne said...

Just went to the site and can't decide on my favourite. I really like the Do Jiggy and oh my, love The Stand.

Jacquelin said...

Parece un aparato muy útil, especialmente cuando los alfileres caen por debajo de las sillas. Gracias por el sorteo.

Jacquelin said...

vengo de visitar "Toys for Quilters" y me ha parecido gracioso el Inflatable Pincushion, seguro a nadie le pasa desapercibido sobre una mesa de costura.

Ruth said...

That looks really handy! Please add me to the drawing.

tink's mom said...

The dog would be so happy if I had one of these. She is so tired of finding the dropped pins for me.

tink's mom said...

They do indeed have a load of toys. I think I'm partial to the Do Jiggy.

Lyn in Vernon said...

The led light is the best idea. The older I get the harder it is to see those pins on the floor. Great. Options on this site!

Darlene Gerber said...

What a cool name for a website!! And what a cool tool!!

Dana said...

love this gadget, hope I win!

Dana said...

I have been on the toys for quilters website and like their black and white fabric AND their polka diddles fabric...well I couldn't choose just one thing to like could I?!

Laceflower said...

I have these lovely, very fine Japanese pins but they do like to go walk about; this would be a handy herder.

iluvmybugs said...

What a great gadget! Thanks for the chance to win.
~Terry~

iluvmybugs said...

Love their storage boxes...great for organizing fat quarters!

teachpany said...

First, I love your little numbered pins. So cute! And practical. I need a lighted magnet. My sewing area is built in, and fairly deep. Getting down on my knees to get under there to get pins is frustrating. When I sweep, there are so many pins, using a magnet like this would be helpful to separate them from the dust bunnies! lol Thanks for having a fun give away!

PJ said...

Thanks for hosting the giveaway for this neat sewing tool. Boy, could I use it in my sewing room.

PJ said...

I went to their website and they have some great fabrics for sale. And I love these cute little toys - - - Cutey Patootie Erasers
too much fun!

Love your give away :-)
This light looks great.
Kross my fingers.

Toys for Quilters has some great storage and organizing ideas. Love the mesh bags, the desk minder and also that little screwdriver with a light!

Sally King said...

Thank you Darlene for the giveaway. Never thought I would get the most beautiful fabrics. Love Hoffmann.

Off to visit the Toy Store!!

I dropped a whole box of pins today. That little gadget would come in handy about now. No one goes into the sewing room for awhile. lol

LynCC said...

Wow! This would have been superb to have on hand yesterday. :D And a place called "Toys for Quilters"?! I'm going right on over!

ritainalaska said...

had fun browsing ... but a found the Mini Miracle Light that looks like it would give a diffused light when i put it under my steady betty for a quick light box. the little light i have has a focused light and doesn't work well for tracing.

rgoshorn@ak.net

LynCC said...

I'm also digging those magnifying tweezers right about now!

I also like the storage containers they have on their site. Look pretty cool! Thanks

Bev in TX said...

I visited "Toys for Quilters" and looked at their toys. Wow, choices upon choices, just like in a candy store! Okay, since I have to pick just one favorite, I chose the "Do Jiggy", because I'm always on the lookout for screwdrivers for my machine.

strandkorbtraum said...

ohh maybe I wouldn't run out of pins that fast anymore if I had that ...

Cornwoman said...

I would love to win one of the Lighted Pin Picker Uppers! Thanks for the giveaway!

Cornwoman said...

I went and looked at the Toys For Quilters site, and there's a bunch of really handy stuff on there! My favorite, after the lighted pin picker uppers, is the Peeper Keepers! Those are SO cute! Besides, my glasses need cleaning all of the time. lol

Grams said...

What a great way to grab those pins that try to run off and a light to help see them when they hide.

Vail in tn

Cecilia said...

I could use this in my sewing room since I have carpet on the floor. Thanks for the chance to win one.

Cecilia said...

I looked at Toys for Quilters and I really like their "holster" for the rotary cutter.

Judy said...

Wish I had this 2 days ago when I knew I dropped a pin and couldn't find the darn thing under my desk. Finally on my hands and knees bent down did I find it. Neat accessory!

Diane N said...

That looks like a handy gadget! Thanks for the chance.

Jeanne said...

What a great gadget! Thanks for the chance to win one.

Sue Halter said...

This sure would help me find pins on my carpeted sewing room floor...and would hurt a lot less than using my feet!!!!

Jeanne said...

At Toys for Quilters I really like "The Headlight" which is a light you wear around
your ear so your light moves with you.

JCnNC said...

I would love to win this little dandy device. Thank you for this wonderful opportunity. Judy C

I would love to win one of the wands. Then I can be like my husband who uses one in the garage! Thanks for the giveaway.

Patti said...

My favorite item at Toys for Quilters is the Shed Organizer. I can vision storing a lot of items in it (thread, needles, machine feet). A fun website.

Barb said...

What an awesome gadget! Love the telescoping wand for those hard to reach places :)

Barb said...

Did you see all the novelty tape measures?! The Pinocchio cracks me up :)

Regina said...

Oooh my hubby got one of these for Christmas - I need one before I steal his and get in BIG trouble!!!

Regina said...

Love that little lady bug vacuum - just wish it was a turtle!!! Hmm.... wonder if I could give it a custom paint job?

suemac said...

Wow. Maybe this will prevent my dog from chewing on the pin heads if I can pick them all up from the ground.

Gidget said...

That is such a great idea!

Both my Husband and I could use it.

Diane Wild said...

Thanks for the chance to win the pin picker-upper. I have pins sticking up all over.

Diane Wild said...

I visited the Toys for Quilters and that pin rocker looks handy. Thanks for introducing this site.

What a wonderful, useful little gadget. Thanks for the giveaway!

Quiltin' Sandy said...

That sounds like a must have for us quilters. great giveaway! Sandy. :D

Barb and Sharon said...

I went to the Toys for Quilters and I like "the brush off". I like the name, the colors it comes in and the fact that it is functional!

tesuque said...

The Mini Miracle Light at Toys for Quilters has interesting possibiliities.

tesuque said...

Could have used the lighted picker-upper yesterday when I had a major pin spill. Even without light I discovered some sizeable dust bunnies under cabinets!

Crickets Corner said...

Just love it when you discover something that you didn't know you needed until you saw it. I need a Lighted Pin Picker Upper and if I don't win one I will be headed over to buy one. Thanks for the chance to win one.

Crickets Corner said...

My favotire thing at Toys for Quilters is the Pin PiPicker Upper followed by the Geometric & Abstract fabric. Need to get some of the Strings and the Swirls.

emmy said...

What a great giveaway for such a handy dandy item we all could use.

Janet said...

I'm in! Thanks for the opportunity!

emmy said...

One of favorite things I chose was the Do Jiggy, another great 'toy'.

jmniffer said...

Love my quilting 'gadgets'. Thanks for the chance to win a fun and useful one to add to my collection.

jmniffer said...

I like the pin picker upper and the gadget holder.

MaryBeth said...

I think I might need to get one of those tweezers with the magnifier attached!

MaryBeth said...

I have an unlighted pin picker-upper but I can see the benefit to having a light on it! Thanks for the chance to win.

Sewgirl said...

What a cleaver idea! As my eyes get older, the more light for doing any task, the better!

Liberty said...

I would love to win one of these. Thanks for the chance to win.

Liberty said...

I liked the organizers with pockets, they look very handy.

Karen said...

What a great gadget. I'm always loosing pins and needles.

Sewgirl said...

I just went to the Toys for Quilters website. Wow, What a great bunch of tools and toys there. I loved the food fabrics, always my weakness.

Amy said...

It would be nice not to bend down. But seeing the pins, is half the battle. My husband told the gal at the quilt shop the other day that he was my pin cushion. Hazards of living with a quilter. :)

kc said...

Well, Dear, I'm a follower, and I don't typically win giveaways, and with over 190 responses already here, chances are I won't win this one either, but it sure is interesting reading your insights on this nifty (and fun) little gadget! For years and years, I had a magic wand (magnet with a handle) that I used every time I dropped the pin box, but when we went on the road, sadly, that was one toy that got away (so did my very favorite little bunny bird bath, but that's a whole 'nother story. OK, maybe it was part of the same story, or at least, the same transaction. I'll never know!)

Now, I usually just rub my bare feet around, hoping to find all the pins I've dropped before the puppy can get her paws on 'em. This litle gadget would be a big help in saving my feet!!

kc said...

I just love the very manly (and hard to find!) Tools fabric:

What a fun site! Thanks for the link!!

roadie said...

Boy, do I need one of those. Last night I found two needles on the floor in our TV room...fortunately, they did not find our toes before we found them! Hope I win! :) leanne@gardeningetcetera.com

roadie said...

The Fuzz Nabber looks great! The price is certainly reasonable.

Mhairi said...

I would love to win one of these but if not I will just have to steal the one out of my husbands shed. He uses it for when he drops the screws and things when he is fixing the car. I never thought to use it for pins etc. Thanks for the great idea.

Mhairi said...

I visited the site and have decided that I need the ladybug mini vac. For no other reason than I love ladybirds and this one is super cute.
