    Love the idea to put bobbins on toe separaters. I have been trying to think of a way to keep my cotton thread bobbins separated, this will work and I can write on the holders.

      So glad you commented on this. The bobbin storage looked genious but the link no longer works. Would never have worked out that that’s what they were. Thanks!

      Or you can buy a bobbin box. I’ve had one for years. They sell them at JoAnn Fabrics store or any sewing supply store for a couple bucks.

    re: #6 – I backstitch in both directions to reinforce the corners & then clip the edges. this allows you to clips right up to the stitching without worrying about fraying

    Interesting and useful information. I like your lists. I wish I had time to read them now, but, I have to come back later. I am a list person. I was looking at some lists, and apps to get organized. I am also looking for something like a grocery list and weekly sales information. I want to use coupons on the sale items. It is time consuming trying to find out what is on sale at different stores and use the coupons at that time. I would appreciate it if you have information on how best to do this. In the meantime, I will keep looking for an efficient and quick way to ” marry” the coupons to sales.

      How do you sew around the pull? that is the only problem I have when inserting a zipper this way.

        You pull the zipper down to sew at the top and then close it to finish.

    The BEST way to sew a sharp corner is to stop one stitch before turning the 90° corner. With needle down, raise presser foot, rotate fabric, presser foot down and take one stitch on a 45° angle. Again with needle down, raise presser foot and turn fabric to complete the 90° turn. Presser foot down, continue sewing. Trim off excess seam allowance at corner. Turn to right side and you’ll have a sharp corner, not a rounded one.

    It’s “lose” not “loose” You lose your bobbins, your clothes are loose.

    The hack about buying the really large spool of thread is great if you’re quilting or making lots of somethings that require a lot of thread but if you’re sewing a small project, thread that sits around for a time tends to dry rot and breaks easily. I used some old thread for a baby quilt for a co-worker and the quilt came apart, except for the side where I had to purchase a new spool. Good idea, just be sure to use it.
