    Your Must Have Tools...

    Hi!

    What are your MUST HAVE tools for Quilting & Sewing? With me it's Acrylic Templates, Sharp Sciccors, and shelf liner to keep tmplates or rulers from slipping on the material as I cut. Oh yes, and sharp Omnigrid rotary cutter.

    I love my June Tailor slotted rulers. And also my 6-1/2 x 24 ruler. And my cordless iron. Olfa 60mm cutter is a must-have. Pointy bamboo stick, curvy little scissors, lots of little sharp seam rippers, pointy tweezers, Clover clips, Pinmoors, Elmer's glue, lint rollers, those clicky rolly chalk markers.....it just goes on!! I have a LOT of "must-have" tools!!

    They ought to make sewing chests that look like pirate chests, because all this stuff is like treasure to me! LOL

    My set of Creative Grid rulers. After using one, I went out and bought the others and replaced all my old rulers.

    My 1/4" walking foot (built in accufeed foot) for piecing.

    My clover seam ripper which I BROKE today!!!! Urghhhhh!!!

    My Oliso iron ... that sucker is always hot.
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    Accuquilt Go! I would give up my sewing machine before that. I can always handsew the pieces together. A new sharp seam ripper. I get a new one when I have to tug on the thread to get it to cut the thread.
    Got fabric?
