Will this hold bobby pins?

Yes, as long as they are made of a metal that is attracted by the magnet (i.e., iron, cobalt, nickel, and steel).

Could this be glued onto the inside of a bathroom cupboard door with the magnet strong enough to hold bobby pins do you think?

If you can glue it to the inside of a cupboard it would definitely be strong enough to hold bobby pins. I use it to pick up pins I drop on the floor and it has no trouble picking up as many as I drop.John

I would like to order one but I want to make sure I get a navy blue one. How do I go about doing this?

I have the navy blue

Can we choose the color?

I can't speak for anyone else, I only have the red one for sale

How do you clean it?

You can wipe it clean with a damp cloth or an alcohol wipe.

What is the diameter/size of the "bowl?" I'm looking for something that won't take up too much space on my craft table. Maybe a maximum of 4" across.

This 4-3/4x4-1/4x1-1/2 inches thank you

Would this grabbit magnetic pin holder be harmful close to my digital sewing machine?

I'm not an expert but I would say that it is not harmful. I know that magnets should not be placed near PC monitors, TV screens, all modern LCD types can't be touched with a magnet. I can't think how this would be hurtful near your machine anymore than putting a magnet near your cell phone (don't touch the screen though or other digital devices. Also, why would they design an item to be used for sewing if you couldn't have it near the machine? I'm thrilled I bought this item and instantly tried sweeping up the pins when it arrived. It worked great! I'm sure you can also contact the makers of this item or the manufacturer of your sewing machine and ask their opinion.

Would this stick to an oven door? Strange use I know, but wondering if it would work like a red "stop sign" for a hot oven.

The top is magnetic The bottom is not magnetic. If you put the front side of the GRABBIT on a magnetic surface, it will stick very well, and show the bottom. The bottom is the same color as the front, with the name GRABBIT in small letters in the same color plastic. It should serve your purpose very well, as long as your oven door is magnetic.

Could I mount this to the side of my machine?

You could velcro to machine, if it won't stick to it. It is sealed, so can't open it.

What is the size of the sewing pins that are included with magnetic pin cushion?

I cannot help you with specific sizes. They are not the sharoest pins so if you are dealing with delicate fabric beware. I use them for cotton but they bend easily. The magnet is awesome, the pins not so much.
