This took a little thought because there are so many wonderful tools out there. Many of which I've never even tried. I did come up with a list:
Wonder clips - I love these. Again, Honey Do has some responsibility here. I put them on a Christmas list many years ago and he purchased a tin of 100 small ones. I use them regularly, especially when binding a quilt. I've graduated to some bigger sizes, but don't have many of them.
Rotary cutter and mats - What's better for cutting straight lines, because I couldn't even if my life depended on it. I have several cutters and just as many mats. There is always a mat on my work tables and I use it for more than just cutting fabric. It's a ruler after all :)
Wool pressing mats - another wonderful tool in my studio. I wish they made them bigger, although I do have one that I need to put on my ironing board. It's meant to be cut to fit, but I really don't want to cut into it.
Sewing machine - where would I be without it? It allows me so much creativity.
And a couple more that I thought of after I made my list and that I have been using recently.
Quilting gloves - these really help me to move along that queen size quilt that seems to have a mind of her own.
Brown micron pens - these are wonderful for marking, but especially for drawing off patterns. The micron pens come in multiple tip sizes and colors, but the brown are a favorite among those of us that embroider.
