So, Q had a magnetic screw bowl hanging around and not doing much. I cleaned it up and just had to show you it! It is amazingly handy! I have a normal sewing machine, not computerised in the slightest... so it is handy for my machine feet when going from 1/4" seam foot to zipper foot to the normal foot all in one project. It has magnetised my pins, my scissors and seam ripper.
I just did a quick Google search and the bowls can be bought for €5... bargain!
So... now when I am using sewing, I can quickly whack my pins back in my pincushion, knowing that they will stay just there and NOT on my carpet. Carpets in a sewing room are a nightmare... let it be said. But hey, we rent and that is just the way it is.
