I was really surprised and happy to see that my hint is now in print! Guess you can’t keep a good hint down! It is now in Fons & Porter Love of Quilting Magazine, page 8 in the May June 2012 issue! WOW!
Do you remember when I first posted this, almost a year ago? Well, guess what? Fons and Porter contacted me last month and they are going to use this on their tips section on TV! It will be on episode 1810 and should be on sometime this fall. I tried looking for it on the website but it’s not up yet, not until after they air the show! I will go ahead and tape it and provide a link when it airs! What a blast!
I recently had a great idea on how to recycle the gum dispensers! You take the dispenser when it is empty, screw the top off and then you have an empty container ready to be filled with your yardage of rick-a-rack, lace, binding, etc. Then when you are ready to use it, you open the small slot and pull through the amount that you need to use to finish your project. It keeps your binding clean and tidy and right at hand!
PS: I sent a copy to Fons & Porter. Maybe they will share it on TV and I can win a free subscription!
