I don't know about you, but sometimes I see things advertised and think I'd love to give that a go. It was how I felt about the Clover Embroidery Tool. I'd seen lots of pictures of beautiful pictures created by using one so I jumped at the chance when I was given the opportunity to review one. The video shows my thoughts as I give it a go.
Personally, I much prefer doing my embroidery with a needle and thread. I'm sure, if I had the time and inclination to practice, I'd become more proficient at using it and could produce something decent. For me, it wasn't a tool you could immediately pick up and produce good results. However, I could definitely see it had possibilities. I've now passed this onto a friend and look forward to hearing their thoughts, I shall let you know once I've heard back.

The Bobbinsaver by Grabbit Sewing Tools is distributed by EQS and can be found in many sewing shops and online. It will hold plastic or metal bobbins, it accepts bobbins 13/16″ diameter, the bobbins won’t tangle or unwind (a great bonus), it holds over 20 bobbins.
I’d definitely go out and buy one. From what I can see, they range from £6-£10, so good value for money for something that will have years of use.
How do you store your bobbins? Do you think this would be useful for you? I’d love to hear your thoughts.

I have had a lifelong love of crafts which started with being taught how to knit at a very young age. It didn't take long to realise that great joy and satisfaction came from making things. Even now, I get a thrill seeing something that started just as an idea, becoming a finished product, whether I make it, or teach someone else how to make it.
