I think everyone has their favorite tools, but this weekend, I found two new treasured notions:


A (Dritz Ezy) Hem Gauge and portable pressing mat. I had quite a bit of hemming\pressing to do and this hem gauge was a huge time saver – just fold up the material to the desired width and iron in place! The pressing mat was from my husband’s late grandmother’s sewing room and lately, I’ve been finding myself using it a lot. In this case, I was able to put it on a table and watch a program while I worked! So, this leads me to my question, “What are some of your favorite tools?”
