    My Favorite Quilting Accessory

    Hi,

    I thought I’d share a picture of my new favorite quiltingaccessory.It’s called a Sip &Snip.It clamps onto my sewing table andholds my drink and it also has a trash bag on it.I like it because the drink holder is bigenough to hold anything and it has wire sides to keep it there…plus it has acut out for a mug handle!Here’s a picof the box:

    Looks fun, and will come in handy!
    Be a blessing to others, as you may entertain angels unaware!

    Great idea! But I know myself and exactly where the threads would end up, not in the bag LOL I hate stringy coffee!!

    It would be great for those who like a beverage while they sew. My beverage of choice is hot tea but I get to into my sewing and it gets cold.

    Great idea. I spilled iced tea on my plastic thread cases. Sticky.

    I must admit it took me a few days to get used to it. But, now I love it. My DH gave me a cubbie thingy to hold all my notions so I'm used to putting my notions away in it.

    I gave my Secret Pal one of these last year. She loves it. She goes to a lot of workshops and retreats and always has a drink on her table. This keeps the drink out of the way if you use the bag or not. I have an older one that just holds the drink. It sure is handy to keep my drink out of my way.
    I believe giving what I can will never cause me to be in need.

    And here I was expecting to see a bottle of wine and some scissors - probably not the best combination. LOL
    Pretty cool gadget I have one similar and love it. Especially handy to take on retreats or to class.

    Had the same thought about myself. I am just not what you would call a 'cleanie'.

    Me, too! I'm clutzy enough to spill hot tea even with that.

    That does look like a wonderful item. I keep my coffee/drink on the other side of the room because I don't have any place safe to keep the cup while sewing. That would definitely keep the coffee away from the machine.

    There is a bracket that twists up/down. You untwist it to open and then twist until you reach the bottom of your counter. I've had a couple I use for scrapping for years. They are wonderful and very portable.

    I have a similar one that was made for scrapbooking-I think I've had it for 10 yrs or more. It came with a big insulated mug but I don't usually drink anything while I'm sewing so I put a regular mug in it and put sewing tools in it. I need to make a new bag for the trash part-mine came with plastic bags and they are all used up.

    I don't use an open cup or glass in the sewing room. I use a adult sippy or bottle with lid. This holder works great to keep the drink contained.

    I have a similar one from my scrapbook days. I don't recall dumping anything in my drink by accident, though I generally have a lid on my drink for safety.

    That's just what I was thinking I would do with this if I had one. I'm more thirsty while ironing than when sewing so I keep my water bottle on the other side of the room. But this would be great to hold all my stilettos and snips & such...

    Neat accessory, definitely more useful than some things I've impulse-bought... lol
