Stitch Up a Handy Thread Catcher
August 31, 2016 |

Completed Thread Catchers Are (Sometimes) Available!
This handy pincushion and thread catcher combo sits firmly next to your machine or on the arm of your chair. Make it up in your favorite fabrics, as you’ll be using it for years! It’s also a great gift for your sewing friends.
A ceramic tile under the pincushion adds weight so it sits securely in place (found at Lowe’s, Home Depot and hardware stores). Velcro holds the pincushion (7″ x 3 3/4″) and you can easily detach it.
The thread catcher basket measures 5 3/4 inches tall by 5 1/2 inches across and has an optional tab for your scissors.
The designer, Curry Bungalow, has three versions of this pattern available, each with a different pincushion design. You can also purchase supply kits containing the interfacing and such needed to complete the project. There are even finished thread catchers available (sometimes).
Once at that page, look in the left menu for “Thread Catchers” to find those that are for sale.
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
