Alex in the Long Arm Studio

Now that I have a new long arm machine I also have more accessories that need to be stored in my quilt studio, or should I say long arm studio, situated in the quilt studio annex - commonly called the basement.

Surprisingly I haven't gone hog wild and bought every long arm accessory on the market. I did get a ruler base and one ruler: Handi Quilter's VersaTool. I bought extra bobbins and needles and the channel locks too. To save my fingers I bought some Leader Grips and love working with these - so much quicker and pain free! I think I have enough tools for now, but I do need to store them somewhere convenient so I can access them when long arming. Where could I find a storage unit for them? Ikea, of course!

I already have one Alex in which I store my threads, now I could get the wider, lower one to fit under my Handi Quilter Infinity. A quick jaunt to Ikea - really, I didn't look at anything else and went straight to the aisle to get it - and home I came with a new long arm accessory storage unit.

Thanks to hubby, it was quickly assembled and now I have all I need to long arm, including my pantographs, easily accessible under my Infinity.

Gotta love Ikea for their practical pieces and great price point.
