This report describes the development of a sewing pin dispenser designed for Dritz dressmaker pins. These pins have a much smaller head than normal sewing pins so devices on the market do not work for them. Furthermore devices with similar functions such as toothpick dispensers were not effective as the orientation of dispensed pins is critical for easy use and to prevent pricked fingers.
