    I got stick on pencil holders at Walmart, a 3 pack for $5. I put one on each sewing machine and one by by cutting table, and everyone has a seam ripper in it. I also use one for my stilleto on my primary use machine.

    As my guild has at least one sewing day every week. I have a go "tool box" full of duplicates that I keep in my vehicle at all times. Because I never forget to load my machine (but have forgotten the foot control on more than one occasion), I keep a spare foot control in my go bag as well. Fortunately, our Extension Office has a large supply of mats and rulers, so it isn't necessary to transport those items. No wonder I prefer a van -- I am the proud owner of a travelling sewing room.

    I just had to buy 3 "that purple thang", my fav for turning out and poking out corners.......now I can't find that little metal thing with all the small measurements on each part.....1/4", 3/4", 1/2" at al.......so it looks like my next trip to JoAnn's with coupon in had will be several of those things. I have bought multiples on many of the "small" things we use, cleaning brushes, small scissors, purple thang, bobbins (can never have enough of those), ......and a few more I cannot think of at this moment, but always reach for when busy sewing.......and it better be there!!!!
