Keep your work area from being overrun by thread and fabric clutter when you stash your cast-offs in this generously sized scrap catcher. Whether you are right or left-handed, a removeable weighted pillow (pincushion) sits atop the work surface on whichever side is convenient for you. Decorate the front of the scrap catcher by bringing heirloom style cathedral windows. Additionally add a small scissor holder. Make several in your favorite colors or prints and place them wherever you choose to work.

This is a Martha Pullen project class taught by a Licensed Martha Pullen Instructor. Written instructions are provided.
