    I seem to be able to keep up with everything but the 6" ruler with slide. I have 3 and am often trying to find just 1. I have multiples of many things; but that little ruler is the only thing that can't seem to stay in its assigned place.

    All of the above and I also have three pair of these Easy Kut spring Action Scissors near my sewing machine while I'm working.

    You all are making me feel so good! I have multiples of multiples. It seems as if the tool/tools that I need at the moment are always "in hiding". It does not help that my DD uses my machines and tools when she comes over either. But that is my excuse, it is DD's fault!

    What other tools would you consider having multiples of in your sewing/quilting room?

    It sounds like a great idea---but it doesn't really help. I have or 6 seam rippers and I'm still always searching. lol

    Seam ripper- fasten the top of a marking pen to the side of the machine to hold it. Small scissors on a piece of elastic fastened to the sewing machine cord. That way it can't hit the floor and is easily reeled in. Saves MUCH frustration. What my mother called the "open hand" policy seems to happen with other tools - open your hand and the tool drops in that place. ;-)

    Two things that come to mind are the little Omni rulers that are 1" X 6". I have about a half dozen of these because they are so handy for check seam allowance and I have several pair of small (ie 3.5") Gingher scissors.
