A couple months back, I decided to try some new thread and the recommended needles.  I had been having trouble with tension in my machine and the obvious lint build up was part of the problem.  I spent a little bit more than I usually do, but I believe the payoff is huge!  My machine has been happier!

And so, here are a few of the finer things I have enjoyed using while sewing lately :)

So Fine Thread &Topstitching Needles by Superior Threads  — The needles seem to stay sharp longer than other brands.
Famore Scissors – the tip is tiny, helps to get threads from the tiniest spaces.
Patchwork Pins – so tiny and fine, no visible holes left in the fabric after pinning.
Selvage Pin Cushion – it stays where I put it while pushing pins in as I sew.

The next thing I need to find is a cone holder/stand.  I love the thread so much I went with a cone, and it’s much to big for my machine – so far I’ve just set it on the table, and let it feed up, but I don’t think that will last too long.

Do you have a favorite notion, or two?
