I just thought I'd take a short moment to tell you about this very cool little invention that makes my sewing life a little easier. Seriously, I don't think I could sew without it! Well that might me a little over the top, but I definitely love this little contraption and it certainly makes sewing a lot easier.
Here is it - The Pin Place, aka the Scissor spot:
Here it is on my machine:
My old machine used to have a little channel across the front which was handy for stashing pins when a cushion wasn't handy. Like pictured below.
I can't seem to find many places that sell the pin place online, but if you do stumble on one in a shop, I highly recommend buying it. I picked mine up on holiday when I was down on the south coast of NSW, from a little shop called Sew and Tell in Berry. If you haven't been there, you really should try to go. It's a wonderful place that you could easily get lost in for hours and hours.
Tis all for now. I'll be back later with real sewing news, once I finish another assignment - boo!
