Tepee relaxes magnetic pull
My magnetic pin holder secures my silk pins so tightly that it's difficult to remove them, so I push a knitting needle or stiletto under the pins to sculpt them into a tepee shape. Then I can remove individual pins effortlessly while the rest remain securely attached to the magnetic base.
