Most of my stitch markers are copper, which I believe is a ferous metal and will not "stick" to a magnet. Bummer

Actually, a ferrous metal will stick to magnets, ferrous metals being high in iron. Non-ferrous metals: gold, silver, copper, aluminum won't stick to a magnet. I wondered about how useful the wrist band would be with cable needles. The only metal cable needles I've ever seen are aluminum.

I use both wooden and aluminum cable needles, and I simply poke them through the fabric when they are not in use.
