This week's tip is EASY! It's something I started doing a long time ago and have been glad too many times to count...
PACK or RESTOCK A TRAVEL KIT
I keep one ready to go at all times. I spend so much time sitting in carpool lines, waiting for kids at the barn, or just needing a quick project to go. So I have a project (sometimes more than one) that I keep in a little case ready to travel.
Sometimes it just needs restocking: thread, needle, pins, fabric, or templates. I always make sure I have a pair for scissors, seam ripper, and thimble in there too. These are not items I normally take out and use at home, they are just for the travel kit.
Enjoy every stitch,
