New Toy

I go with my husband to Harbor Freight - it's almost as good as a fabric store.
We went the other day and I found these magnetic tool trays.
The minute I saw them I knew what I could use them for.
It fits perfectly on top of my old Singer and I don't have to worry about the vibration making it fall.
And the best thing is it only cost $2

I use one beside my newer machine to keep my seam rippers - now they aren't on the floor.
Don't forget to enter my GIVEAWAY

I'm the same with hardware stores and automotive shops with my husband too :) Princess Auto, has these parts trays for the same...2 bucks!
Great idea!

If you have a computerized machine, I've heard that magnets can harm the computer.

Big ooops! Magnets sitting on or near your computerized machine can wipe out the machine's memory!!!
(Would work great on a more vintage machine, however.)
I do love Harbor Freight--my problem is getting there at a time it's not over run with so many guys that the line is out the door. (Need to figure out a way to get there during the week!)

A trip to a place like that is always interesting to see what I can use for quilting and/or art supplies...you just have to have an open mind and think outside the box.

I have to confess, I have 4 magnetic pin keeps and several pin cushions....I'm a junkie!

I've heard not to put it near your machine so I keep mine off to the side. Perhaps your local machine repair shop can tell you specifically if it will affect your machine.
