Cool Tools. I'm in the process of unpacking my new machine. I got my old embroidery machine packed away and ready for when my niece wants it back. So it sits in the closet in it's blue rolling bag.
With the new machine, I need a container to store all of my feet and the itty bitty nick-nacks, like spool caps, etc. I hate storing the feet, etc., on/in the machine. It always ends up with me having to undo something i'm working on. UGH!
I came up with a solution a few machines ago and do this for every machine I own. it's cheap, durable, and clever. This ensures you have everything at your fingertips and all in one place.
Are you ready?
Yep, a plastic tackle box. I buy the kind that flexible compartments. The box arrives with the long compartments and then I cut up the little inner "tabs" to make the right sized compartments for my feet/tools. For easy identification I write my name and my machine name on the front of the box so I know which machine it's for.
Now that's some fancy footwork!
