No More Chasing the Sewing Machine Peddle!

One of my pet-peaves in the sewing room is chasing the sewing machine pedal on the floor. This isn’t an issue with the industrial sewing machines as they are built in the frame; but…. well any sewer knows the frustration.

However, there is a dirt-cheap, SIMPLE solution! The ever useful sticky-tack! If you’re not familiar with the product, just head to the dollar store and ask. Here’s the one I purchased:

It is just great product, and a cheap version works just fine. I’ve used it for years on the bottom back corners of wall mounted picture frames to keep them in horizontal, and from getting bumped off the wall by overly rambunctious “little darlings”.  🙂

So, here’s the fix:

Put a few pieces of sticky-tack on the bottom of the presser foot, then place on the floor in the spot you prefer. No more chasing the foot!
