While on the Quilt Tour I ended up in this shop in the middle of nowhere. Well, just outside of Fuquay anyway… in a doublewide. Strange shop. Anyhow, they had these kits for thread catchers. Thread catchers are a convenient place to toss thread and fabric clippings while you sew. The kit included a pattern, the filler for the pin cushion, and a plastic strip for the top of the bag. They also had fabric, but I didn’t like any of them so I got to pick my own fabrics. It turned out the instructions were utterly awful, so I ended up reading different tutorials on thread catchers online and then winging it. I think it came out pretty good. Love this thing! Everyone that sews should have one.
