We don't often think of how to stay safe in our quilt studios, but we really should! In this video Kim shows you some of the possible dangers in your studio and how to stay safe.
Be sure that your iron is turned off before leaving your quilt studio.
We all use extension cords, but this can pose a tripping hazard. Keep safe by taping or rerouting the path of extension cords.
Keep your sewing machine safe by plugging it into a power bar with a surge protector.
Always keep your rotary cutter closed when not using it.
It's a good idea to have a first aid kit or band-aids in your quilt studio for those cuts that often seem to happen.
Have your cell phone or another phone close by in case of an accident where you need to call for help.
