I’m not much of a gadget person, but there are a few that I really love! Here are my current top three in no particular order.
First up is a bobbin holder. For years my bobbins just floated in the drawer with my thread. It tended to be a tangled mess! I decided that this bobbin saver couldn’t make it any worse! My thread drawer is still a little messy, but my bobbins are all contained. I have both plastic and metal bobbins and they both fit just fine.
There are many different brands of Wonder clips. They come in several sizes and all kinds of colors/patterns. I love that they don’t put holes in my material. Plus, it doesn’t matter which way you put them on, pinning a seam. Frequently I get a seam all pinned and then realize I’ve got the pins going the wrong way so when I sew, I have to push them out towards the sewing needle rather than pulling them out towards me.
I got these self-threading needles years ago as evidenced by the 3 for $.99 Murphy’s sticker! They are so easy! It makes hand sewing just a little more bearable. You simply push the thread in through the top. No trying to find the eye.
One bonus “gadget” because I’m not sure it’s actually a gadget, is my twin needle.
I’ve started using it a lot more and I love the professional finished look I get.
