Have done garments and quilting until I developed "Sculpted Threads" technique - free motion stitching on water soluble stabilizer to create jewelry and decorative vessels as well as purses. Now I spend most of my time doing this.
Oh wow...this is the greatest tip yet! I haven't seen this rubber holder. I'm stuck with Wal-mart unless I drive 45 minutes to an hour to get to a craft store. Next time I'm in town I'll hunt me down one of those holders!! Thanks for sharing : )
