Harbor Freight Tools!!

Today I reluctantly went with my DBF to a tool store called Harbor Freight....  All I can say is Wow - What great prices!  I found some wonderful "Quilting" Tools!!

Painter Tape - $3.49
LED Magnetic Head Lamp $4.99  - I can wear it on my head or place it on the head of the machine with with magnet. I'll let you know how works out. 
Ceramic Block Magnet set $1.49 - Hold my hand sewing needles

Round Magnet - $3.99 - Hold my quilt pins. I used a small metal pet bowl and the round Magnet on the bottom.

Pins in Bowl
Magnet on the bottom

Pick Set - $3.99 - I will use these to remove quilting stitches, but they are super pointy! So I know I will have to be careful with these.

Orange Suction Cup -$ 3.29 - To hold ruler in place

Vacuum Attachments - $8.99  (plus used a 20% off coupon)!!- I have been looking for something like this, but didn't want to pay too much for it. I can use my regular vacuum to remove dust and lint from my machine!! Yes!

Telescoping Magnet Wand - $4.99

One pass under my sewing table and look at all the pins!  And I swept under there today! How did I miss them??

Cutting Scissors 14 in - $3.99
The true length of the blade is about 81/2 inches.  Cuts the batting nice and straight!  What a find!!

Grand Total:  About $35.

One thing I forgot to look for were rotary blades. 

I also found this Sewing Basket at a Yard Sale for $5!!  I am going to remove the handle because it gets in the way when you swing the draws open.  Love it!
