  • Sewing room protection

    Do you ever have those days when you would like or need to have the door to sewing room open but don't want to risk any dogs peeing on floor/furniture or small children grabbing and putting pin cushions, needles, scissors, or any other sewing tools in their mouth? If so, then set up a swing open...

  • Re: Fat Quarter storage

    Costgo sells the spring garden lettuce in clear plastic containers. I save these and they are the perfect size for storing fat quarters. Repurpose - recycle. Keeps them out of the land fill and keeps my fabric so happy.

  • Magnet for loose pins

    I have a magnetic pin bowl, but as I travel from cutting mat, to ironing board, to sewing sometimes fails to make the trip! I have taken a small square magnet from my refrigerator (I got these at the post office) and turn them so the magnetic side is up and have one at the sewing machine...

  • Printer Paper Box Top - Great for organizing and storing work in progress!

    I work in an office and I have found that the removalable box top from a case of paper is great for arranging block segments, finished blocks, strips, etc. The box top measures 12x18" and is 3" deep. With limited sewing space in a corner of my bedroom, using the box tops makes it easy to store...

  • Ruler Gripper in a Pinch

    I have been having trouble with my square up ruler slipping, because money is tight I haven't been able to buy the grip adhesive that is sold for clear rulers. But as I was cleaning up after dinner, I noticed how the cling wrap stayed stuck to the kitchen counter so I decided to see if it would help...

  • Re: QCA Member Tip Contest - Post Your Entries Here

    February Newsletter Tip Winner: I'm not sure how "creative" my tip is for this post, but the best way for me to get a project finalized or work completed is for me to be completely and totally organized - which of course, takes time!
