MarveLes Art Studios Blogs, Sewing Loves 2 Comments

Hi everyone!  I’m back from a lovely, long weekend just for us girls; one that is called “The Tres Dias Weekend.”  *(You can find out more online at and This is a Christian weekend of three days of learning, growing, laughing, tears, and maturing in our Christian walk of faith.  It was just a super wonderful weekend of fellowship and God’s amazing grace!  

I just want to stop for a minute, and express my thankfulness for you and thank God for everyone ‘out there’ who have shown their love and support to me.  I’m so blessed!  Thank you all for your wonderful friendship. I know God will use this blog and I know it’s a place where I am to “be” and to give my Utmost here… for His Highest.  Thanks for hangin’ with me!!

Loved reading your comments regarding our newest family member, our sweet little Miss Georgia – the wild child Border Collie puppy.  She is sweet innocence and completely fun and joyful in her puppy pouncing and playful (and very razor sharp teeth!)   

So, while I continue to ‘get back into the thick of things’ and get some more pictures loaded — I thought I would share with you how I store my sewing machine feet.  

I love these little Bernina caddy’s — they fit perfectly inside the drawers of my sewing cabinet that my sewing machine sits on.  Handy.

I have three drawers with all my feet in them. I’d just like to say not all the little caddy’s are filled, just in case you were wondering…!  

 But I do have alot of feet, and they are ALL in numerical order.  Love that!

It’s not just because it’s neat and tidy, but I can also find them fast.  And it’s easy access, as I can just open the drawer, and pull the foot I need quickly from the case.   {It’s the putting it back that becomes more of an issue!}

And there’s room for knick-knacks in the little drawers within the caddy.  As well as space for bobbins, and even the big bulky buttonhole foot.

 Recently, some of the students in Bernina Mastery Class were not even aware that these caddy cases can be ordered… but they can.  And you can purchase extras of the little gray ‘hangers’ (as I call them) to fit your type of feet (coded and uncoded) as you need.

I received all but two of mine with the past purchases of machines, and in my studio, they are ‘sew worth it!’ I would much rather organize~~ and find a foot within 30 seconds, than rummage through plastic bags, or tupperware caddy’s in frustration.  Searching time… is sewing time! 

Just thought ya might like ta know!  Thanks again, and have a terrific week! 

We’ll talk soon!

  1. Welcome back, Leslie. I, myself, feel kinda resurrected. 🙂 I came back to running shoes jumping by the door so I'm hopping about. Organizing the playroom is on my list and I didn't know I could get a holder for the smaller/older feet. Duh! Live and learn and then leap into living! Blessings from elle

  2. I'm glad you had a great weekend! It sounds very 'replenishing'
    I sure wish Pfaff made caddies like that!
