    I saw a tutorial today about Thread Catchers and thought
    I would give it a try. They really do work!!! Also I am
    going to Shipshawana this Wednesday and I just had
    to make a name tag. I know, I know I didn't have room
    enough for all the letters of my name so I shortened
    it.

    The threadcatchers are to put your threads in after you snip them. That thread catcher is adorable!!

    I thought I was the only one with a large, horizontal thread catcher! The funniest is my 9 year old son - he's seen me do this sew much that it's exactly what he does when he sews! He went to a "quilt camp" and the ladies were laughing when they told me he had the messiest floor area. I had to confess that he got if from me!
