Default Whta is your "Have to have" other than sewing machine

I always swore it was my seam ripper ! They all get used hard.. I use the word "they" because I should start buying them in bulk ! I bet particular for a seam .. ect.

But the horror.. I am on a dead line.. Baby quilt.. during superbowl my iron went kuput! My guy loves me.. We ran to walmart for a fast pick up.. looked like we and 4 other customers were the only ones buying ! ha ha..

Sewing machine.. a given

Iron .. a must have

Seam ripper... always by my side.

Any ideas of what you could not live with out?

Lighting. I have 3 lights with different intensities that I use for quilting. Can't live without them.

Mine is starch! It makes a world of difference , especially if you are doing some really small pieces, or working with a bias edge.
