Pins and Magnets

Need a quick pin holder? Grab one of your fridge magnets, set it down magnet-side up within reach, and voila! Any and all pins are available without needing to dig or pinch or roll.


Buttons! Who doesn’t fiddle around picking out the right ones, or digging through boxes to find ones that match one another?

A quick tip for making button finding and matching easier is to slip matching buttons onto a safety pin. The buttons are sure to remain together and easy to locate.

A Quick Basting Tip

When machine or hand basting, use a thread color that contrasts with the fabric. This will be much easier to see and pull out afterwards!
