Well, just a few weeks ago while doing that big clean out & re-organisation in my sewing room, I will tell you that I knocked over my glass of wine. Yes, how stupid was that! I could have screamed as the entire glass ended up all over the table as well as the floor! AND it was a glass of wine from a most precious bottle of Nederburg wine that I had brought all the way home from my recent visit to South Africa (my very favourite wine that I cannot seem to find here in Canada – sigh). You can imagine how cross I was with myself for being so stupid.
And then just yesterday I knocked over my mug at work and had another mess to clean up – this time, cold tea!
So, I am sure you will appreciate that this little snippet in a magazine (FabShop News OCTOBER 2012) definitely caught my attention.
It is a handy dandy sewing related notion which attaches to the sewing table or desk and holds your coffee mug AND doubles as a trash baggie. Also great if you don’t want a cold drink to “sweat” all over your working surface. This little invention is the brainchild of Lanette Edens of Gypsy Quilter who came up with this rather clever notion for klutses like me! The cup holder clamps to most table tops & adjusts to the height needed. The clamp is rubberized so it won’t damage your table surface. Most mug sizes will fit.
Don’t want to be as stupid as me? Don’t want to waste wine? or coffee? Or have the hassle of cleaning up a liquid mess? ……. then you might like to check out this link for more information on where you can find this SIP & SNIP. I am sure your local JANOME DEALER would also be most happy to order it for you if they don’t already have it in stock.
Just barely hours after this post was published, Sally sent a comment telling us about another very similar notion, the Scrap-Ma-Bob Cup and Bag Clamp-On
Holder – also with cup holder and baggie for your threads & trash (see pic below). I am sure your local dealer can order it for you too. Just thought I’d share this info as Sally had great things to say about it. Thanks for sharing, Sally!
