The office supply that’s a ‘must have’ at your sewing table

I love it when something I already have can be used for something else too…and this one is kind of brilliant! Sewing expert Heather Valentine shares this great tip for holding projects together:

“Need an extra hand when sewing? Raid the desk drawer and grab a few binder clips. They are great for holding quilt binding in place.”

Those binder clips hold everything together tightly, like a clamp would for woodworking projects. So next time you are assembling a quilted “sandwich, ” grab a handful of binder clips before you sew.
