I spend a lot of time sewing, almost every day. I love to sew but, like most of us, I seem to have a myriad of interruptions. Who knew? I am retired! I thought that I would have endless hours to fill with stuff. Ha! I am busy all of the time!
To add to the interruptions, for some reason, I seem to forget stuff now, like what kind of needle I was using in any one of my three sewing machines. I am pretty sure it has NOTHING to do with my age! Must be something else!
Anyway, different types of fabrics need different types of sewing machine needles. To remind me what needle I have in the machine, I use a small post-it note with the information. This way if I have to go do something else, I have no problems when I return. I actually put the note on the machine when I insert the needle, that way I don’t forget when I have an interruption.
Try it! I hope you find it to be a helpful tip!
Until next time,
