Today, I wanted to share a new friend I made...Marguerita. She emailed a little bit ago saying someone shared my blog with her and she noticed I was from Rhode Island. She lived in Connecticut over 30 years ago and went to the beach in my town...so funny!! She now lives in Alaska.
She noticed from some of my Tool Time Tuesday posts that we would be best friends shopping in the hardware store! She shared an unbelievable video with me, that she made, about building up your sewing table to fit around your sewing machine...with foam insulation boards. I asked if I could share it with all of you!!
The idea is fabulous. The foam board insulation fits around your machine giving you a completely flat surface for your quilt or sewing to rest on. Nothing drops off or sags from the sewing machine plate.
Here's a little picture of her table (used with her permission), but the video is the best!!
You can click HERE for her table video...
You can click HERE for her other YouTube videos...so many great ones.
You will get lost with her tips and tricks. One of my favorites is using the metal arm that holds the plug from inside a toilet bowl ( new one of course...let's not go crazy with Tool Time by stealing one from one of the bathrooms in your house!! Ok, maybe, if we're desperate...all in the name of sewing, right? LOL.) She uses it to guide cone thread up from a coffee cup up to your machine. Genius!! It's on the video.
Enjoy her site.
Thanks Marguerita for emailing and sharing your sewing table with me. See you in the hardware store!!
Have a Sew, Sew Saturday,
