Right now I am in my busy time for teaching. I run summer camps all day everyday and am having such a great time. This past week, we were having some challenges in keeping the pins off of the floor. I have these magnetic pin holders that the students are supposed to carry with them to the machines and put the pins on there instead of leaving them on the table to roll onto the floor. On the third morning of camp last week, I pulled all the students together and asked them what we could do to keep the pins from getting on the floor and pilling up on the tables. One of them had a great solution!!
Pin cushions that attach to the sewing machines!!
My daughter, who is home from college, asked if she could help me! What a treat to be sewing with my daughter! She chose all the fabrics, we made the pin cushions together, and sewed the straps all while talking and have a great time!
I even made myself a wrist pincushion! I can’t wait for camp this week to see if these sewing machine pin cushions do the trick!
