My Favorite Sewing / Quilting Tools

My Favorite Sewing / Quilting Tools

Dental tools work great to get out those pesky stitches.  Watch out they can be very pointy.  I dulled them down with fine sand paper. (Purchased at Harbor Freight) 

Long Sheers to cut batting.  (Purchased at Harbor Freight) 

Telescoping Magnet: To pick up pins and other stuff.  (Purchased at Harbor Freight) 

Magnet attached to the bottom of a metal bowl.  Hold my quilting pins. Super cheep to make at home.

Clip N Seal: For clipping the quilt to long arm frame. (Bought at Clip N Seal Web Site)
Mondo Pack.  

 Quilting Ruler Foot: From Finishing Touches Quilting Studio
After about a year the bottom came loose. I sent it back for repair and they sent me a brand new one!!! 
Super Love this ruler foot!!! 

"Ruler Holder" :  This holder is made from foam.  Super light and holds a bunch of rulers.  I get these foam holders at the end of track season.  They hold the medal we give to the kids.  One day I decided to see if it would hold my rulers.... and its great!  But it couldn't support the weight of the rulers, so I attached a self stick floor tile to the bottom! I held the rulers sideways and they held tight.  
Anyone interest let me know I have a bunch.  :)
