My second favorite thing is the Famore Cutlery EZ Stitch Snip with micro serrated blades. I keep a pair handy by each of my machines. They are perfect for clipping threads, but also work good for trimming fabric from small areas, such as in a machine embroidery design. Serrated blades assist in precision cutting. They are on sale from Famore direct for $15.00 a pair. See https://famorecutlery.com/738p-ez-stitch-snips-with-micro-serrated-blade/. (No affiliation or compensation.)
My third best notion is Aurifil thread. I buy basic colors in large cones. The smaller spools are great for colors that won’t be used a lot. I do like to do machine embroidery with cotton thread sometimes, as an alternative to shiny poly embroidery thread.
Please stop by tomorrow to see what I’ve been working on. The suggested topic is first project. I think I can put my hands on the first quilt I made... I know I’ve seen it since I moved. I’ll also show some current projects, as I’m always working on more than one!
Thanks for visiting,
