  • Pinning Tip

    When I am quilting, or doing any sewing I use two pin cushions. One on my work area where I do my pinning and one by my machine. That way I am not having to move my pin cushion around all the time. When the one at the pinning area is empty, then I switch them around.

  • I know where MY foot is

    Sometimes on a project, I need to change back and forth between sewing machine feet. After having temprarily "lost" the unattached foot, by either knocking it off without noticing or forgetting where I put it, I bought a decorative toothpick holder. Now I know where to look right away for the...
