    So I take it that not many people have a sewing cabinet that your machine sits on? It has drawers all down one side? The top drawer is where I put all my smaller sewing notions, divided up in a silverware tray. It works great!

    Everyone - Thanks for all the tips...
    I am trying some adhesive velcro on the bottom of this thing.
    Once I get my newest fabric cabinet in my sewing room, I'll photograph everything.

    I loved the drawers in my sewing machine cabinet, still have lots of goodies in them. However my lighting is just the 'chandelier' over the dining room table, so when I got my portable sewing machine I just set it up on the end of the dining room table in order to see what I was doing better. I also have one of the pocket organizer things that hangs up (like the closet shoe or jewelry organizer) near my machine and ironing board.

    How about a large coffee mug? They are heavy and won't tip. Plenty of room for a few necessary items while you sew.
    Set a small trash can on the floor to toss in the threads.
    I use them even in my drawers for safety pins and misc. items.
    like sewing machine needles. This way my drawers are always organized.

    The problem - it keeps falling off!

    Has anyone a better solution?
    Anyone make a tool caddy for the sewing table?
    how about a strip of velcro on table &bottom of pincushion ?
    That's what I was gonna say....I want to make one of these pincushion/bag. I think I like the idea better with the non-slip shelf on the bottom instead so that you can move it around from your sewing table to the kitchen table like I have to do.
