    thank you so much for all of your informative tips and tricks. I have one for you…Boca clips! I bought these clips from Walmart. they are cute spring clips intended for holding beach towels to your beach chair. But these suckers are great for EVERYTHING! The spring is nice and tight and holds even heavy things in place. Plus the grippers are smooth enough so it doesn’t mess up delicate fabrics. I use them to hold large quilts to my table when I’m pinning on binding, I use the round bracelet shaped ones to hold the rolled up side of my quilts together when I am machine quilting (they fit under my sewing machine!) they also work well as clothespins for heavy items. Wish I could upload a picture so you could see what I mean
