|This was in this month's Threads magazine. I think it's such a great idea, I'm going to set one up in my sewing room! If you are working on big projects with a lot of yardage (gowns, home dec, etc.), put a hook (you can find them in any hardware store) in your ceiling, preferably attached to a joist. Take a double length of strong cording and put knots in it at several intervals so you have a series of "loops" in the cording and hang that from the hook. You can then hang any large projects from the cording at the appropriate height so you can sew the fabrics while keeping the bulk of the rest of the project out of the way. Once I install it, I'll post a picture. This would be very handy for hemming large projects like wedding gowns and draperies. I wish I had known about it when I was making my slipcover!
