Quilters are notorious for their stash of fabric. They are also quick to buy the latest in Sewing Gizmos and Gadgets. Once I started quilting with a longarm and purchased an embroidery machine, I also had to have a huge collection of threads; fine threads, thick threads, shiny threads, matte threads, threads in every color. Someone asked me the other day about my thread collection and I responded that when I am in the middle of a project and the creative juices are flowing, I want to be able to pick out the right thread in the right color, right in my studio and not have to wait to go shopping for it. On a practical note, I was thankful last night when a portion of my sole came apart from my new sewing slippers as I was able to get out a heavy-duty needle and black heavy thread and fix them like new. Who would have thought that the Nimble Thimble would include cobbler skills.
