I’m just popping in with a quicky tip for you today.
When quilting on my Sweet Sixteen, I usually like to bury my threads as I go so I don’t have to face a pile of them after the quilting is finished. This means I’m constantly grabbing a needle to use.
So, to keep one handy at all times I put a piece of magnet tape on the front of my machine. It holds my needle and a straight pin and keeps them within easy reach when I’m working. It’s a cheap and easy solution to always my pincushion – which is always on the other table.
And, speaking of needles….if you bury lots of threads or have a difficult time threading needles, these Clover Self-Threading needles are just what you need! Snap the threads in the top, bury them, and move on to the next. Easy peasy!
These two little things are huge time savers for me. I hope you find them useful as well!
