Space-saving thread pole allows thread to unwind and feed freely from vertical spools on sewing machine. Eliminate herky-jerky feeding that causes poor stitch formation. Assemble in seconds. Lightweight and non-bulky. Disassemble in seconds, place parts in a plastic bag cut-to-fit (instructions included), and tuck into the Tooly Tool Holder Easel (see my other patterns on Craftsy) for taking to class and/or retreat (but you will want to use it at home, too--I do). For machines with two vertical spool pins. Funny note: One of my cats loves to chew on the straws and clothespins--love him anyway--but I do have to replace straws occasionally.

Sew Together
Since coloring in squares on graph paper with crayons as a preschooler (my early venture into quilt design?), my journey into the sewing and quilting world has been nonstop! I am mostly self-taught, which means I owe a lot to my 4-H teachers, my mother (for allowing me time to sew) contributors to the sewing magazines (and now blogs), and the traveling instructors at sewing expos, and of course my sewing friends--thank you, thank you, thank you! I worked and taught quilt classes and serger classes for over ten years at a local quilt shop. During that time I developed and patented the Sew Easy Guide, a tool for quilting and sewing diagonally across squares without marking or using paper. I hope to continue inventing sewing tools and designing patterns that are practical AND pretty. Thanks to Craftsy, sharing these designs will be easier than ever--thank you Craftsy!
