You long-time readers know that I am a huge fan of Heather and business Purple Hobbies. In the past, I have reviewed several of her products. My favorites that I use all the time are the Third Hand Binding Tool and her Blade Saver Thread Cutter and her Large Magnet Pin Cup.
I recently popped over to her site when I was writing a blog post and saw that Heather has something new that she is making…
It’s called a Hanging Thread Catcher. Oh, that caught my eye immediately. Um, I wanted that. Well, I actually thought I wanted three. I could see myself having one on my main sewing machine. I could see myself having one at the longarm AND I could see using one for cross stitching!!
I messaged Heather and asked her if she’d send me on to review. She said yes…so today, I’m telling you what I think about it.
The second I opened the box I immediately took it to my lamp where I cross stitch and tried to find a place to attach it. That was easy to do. I looped it as you see it. I just love it. I can’t tell you how many times I lose my scissor in the cushions of the loveseat. Then I stick my hand down in the crevice to find it and stab myself. No more. I know where my scissor is all of the time. It’s awesome.
Being I have kids and dogs in my house all of the time it’s not safe for me to have a cute scissor holder that sits out. I hook the scissors on each night when I sit down to stitch and then put them away when I’m done. I can leave the holder there though.
It not only holds my scissors but also holds my orts…the little thread leftovers that are too small to stitch with.
I LOVE-LOVE-LOVE it!!
I was going to immediately order another one but then decided I would test it out in my sewing room before I did.
On my long arm, it was fabulous. It was out of the way. I could still see what I was doing. The scissors stayed in place while the machine ran. 10 out of 10 I love it.
On my sewing machine, I wasn’t as excited about it.
It was a little awkward and in the way. I’m going to play around with it a bit and see if there is another way I can set it up.
For the longarm…it’s a must. For cross stitching, it’s a must-have for me too. I’m super excited about the cute little Hanging Thread Catcher. By the way, it comes in MANY different colors. I just got red because I’m a red girl!!

I have been so impressed with all of the things I have gotten from Heather…I highly recommend, Third Hand Binding Tool and her Blade Saver Thread Cutter, and her Large Magnet Pin Cup. I have her new bias tape maker that I’m getting ready to test out on a new project. I can’t wait!! I’ll let you know what I think of it in an upcoming blog post.
