    Fabric glasses cases make perfect way to store rotary cutters.

    A thick, straight piece of magnet on sewing machine plate a quarter inch away from needle serves as a great guide when piecing...but NOT on computerized machines. On computerized machines, tape a stack of sticky notes as the guide.

    I do believe we got to the moon over 40 years ago! :lol:

    I use parchment paper or the release paper from fusible web instead of a pressing sheet or baking sheet, weekly pill containers (free from the drug store) hold bobbins, and metal nut meat pickers make great stilettos. Oh, and moleskin makes the best seam guide of all, way better than Post'its.

    I save and use the heavy duty meat trays from Wal-Mart to hold all kinds of sewing things even cut fabric pieces.

    I am book marking this thread for some of neat ideas I have heard of before.

    Small pill bottles of an empty tin of international flavor collee, tape it closed and cut a slit in the plastic lid for used pins, needles, rotary blades.
