Size:  296.8 KBThis flannel covered extra piece of the design wall serves as a small board to pin the current instructions. I am forever losing that page of instructions on which way to turn that half square triangle. So a quick glance to this copy of the instructions right above the sewing machine solved my problem.

    T is it True? H is it Helpful? I is it Inspiring? N is it Necessary? K is it Kind?

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    Great idea. I have a small design wall behind my sewing machine. I'll have to start pinning the instructions there.

    I have a metal stand with magnets to hold my paperwork...but it sometimes gets in the way of what I'm doing. If I exchanged places with the machine table and cutting table I could do this also. Good idea.
    Oh...we have the same machine too...but mine is on a Grace frame for quilting. Love this machine don't you??

    Great idea!

    Here's a picture of what I have near my sewing machine for easy access. The two embroidery hoops have insulation behind the fabric, so are useful to pin patterns, etc. to.

    That’s convenient and you are fortunate to have it close and handy. Unfortunately I have two sewing machine cabinets that face each other in the middle of the room and my design wall is not close.
    attitude is everything...the rest will fall into place.

    of course! Yes, put instructions there. I actually have a cork board in my sewing area near my machine that I just put up things i like to look at.
