So, I revamped the 5" x 7" Needle Keep Mat...downsized it to be about 4" x 5" and used Sew Fab Foam in the middle...really makes for a great padding for the needles...I think I will offer both sizes for the class...the larger one for those who don't see as well as they use to! Last two photos are for my girlfriends and they are the smaller 4" x 5" size...so which size do you like better? I was concerned that the lettering would be too small and unclear, but I think it came out great...Thanks for looking!

What a great idea! Give me something to think about. I stick my needle into some presstick on the side of my machine then forget if the needle is new, used or what the heckits doing there!

Are you now selling your designs? Right now I'd have to have larger one to read-cataract needing attention--making me see cross-eyed. Your small print is so clear. Is this a particular font or your font digitizing also? Would come in so handy. I have one pincushion labeled in sections but forget to bring where other machines are in use when changing out needles.

Love these. I personally would go for the larger one. Just easier for me to read

Well done Kim, it is now magic in a larger size, especially for me as I also wear glasses and have two cataracts that need attention, but who knows when I can get them done, such a waiting list. I would imagine it is now perfect for a lot of us older ladies. Sandra.

They both look great! I would probably pick the larger size just for the convenience of being able to see it at a glance.

I wear glasses and need the larger one to see, I have my computer set at 150% to read it. Great job on redoing it. Your class should love them.

Thanks, Sue...I'll have to see just how up to date I can keep it, too! Although if it is right next to my machine, I'll have a head start!
