Featured in the PR book!
I purchased a revolving desk organizer at an office supply store. At 7 inches in diameter and 8 inches high, it takes up minimal space. I keep marking pens, stillettos, bobbins, thimbles, and my sewing machine needle case in there. Common pins removed while sewing are tossed into another section. They are all within arm's reach, each in a separate section on the organizer. The big center section would be big enough to hold a pair of shears or scissors, if only I were organized enough to habitually put them in the same place every time I put them down!

I recently bought oneof these at Sam's Club; the price was right and it came with what could laughingly be called supplies - paper clips, a cheap tape dispenser, a few Post-its, etc. I think it was about $13. Works really well for sewing "junk".

I bought a lazy-susan type taco serving dish at a garage sale. It has individual clear plastic containers. It has lids you can use if you wish. I don't. It's larger in dimension but I can hold a lot of stuff. I have a large sewing space, so it works. I also have lots of jars and vases of all different shapes and sizes that I spray pain the same color and use those to hold different items. I use different baskets with handles for things I need to carry. I like clear glass jars to hold odd buttons some trims, etc. It adds focal interest to the room. Everyone can see my sewing room, so I like to make it look interesting to look at.

I have a similar item! In the center I have my c-thru rulers, and curves. In the sides there are seam rippers, notcher and x-acto knives, as well as the needle-nose pliers that I used to misplace all the time. The loop turner fits nicely as well.
