    Oh I like this idea. I don't usually keep a drink by my side when I am sewing for the same reason amadasgramma said but this idea would work for me. Thanks!

    Amazon sells them for $20.00, but they are currently out of stock.

    I know I will love how you 'quiltify' this. I, too, would be putting threads in my cup/drink. I have a pin cushion which is weighted and has little velcro straps which connect to a thread catcher bag. The bag can be removed and be emptied. It is a quilted item and I love it. Bought it at Stitchers (local needlework shop).

    I keep a brown lunch bag taped to the edge of my sewing table for threads. Works fine.

    Exactly! I have one of those magnifying lamps on a long positionable arm that clamps to tables. I went to the wood scraps out back and found a small block and used it under the table to stabilize the clamp - works great!!

    Ditto! Although a quilted holder would look nicer.

    $24.95 seems a little pricey for something I can live without. 2 1/2 yards of fabric would be more fun JMHO

    When I was in Paducah last week, on my second trip through the bubble, I found one and I bought it. A lady at national quilting day had one and I wanted one as I'm always afraid of spilling my beverage and ruining my machine or worse yet, my fabric. Now I can have my beverage by me and remember to drink, otherwise I'm always getting dehydrated.

    It is the Scrap-ma-bob, designed for scrapbookers, but rapidly being taken over by quilter's! WHEN you can find one!
    I saw it at the quilt retreat this weekend, and the quilt shop had one on display and said they are taking orders because the manufacturer is so overwhelmed, they are back ordered for months now! go figure!

    I ordered one and when it gets here I am going to "quiltify" it up a bit!
