Crafters who want to buy the sewing box also have a few suggestions.
One user suggested buying a sewing wheel or a sewing mat to help keep their work area tidy.
Another user said she’d buy a pair of sewing scissors for the task.
“The sewing machine has to be durable,” Margo, from Los Angeles, California, said, adding that she thinks the machine does a good job of keeping the sewing area tidy while she is away from the sewing machines.
