To carry thread with you when you are traveling use empty dental floss containers. Remove the empty floss spool and replace it with a bobbin loaded with thread. Wind the tread through the opening to the cutter, and then shut the lid on the container. Before you do this make sure the hole in your bobbin is the same as the dental floss. Some dental floss are larger so check before you do this. :)
Tired of chasing the sewing machine foot pedal under your table? Try wrapping a wide rubber band around the pedal to prevent slippage.
If you are like me I have those pesky little bits of fabric and thread all over my work area. A lint roller works good to pick up all these little pest. Run it across the floor, your table and you.
If you are hand quilting and can’t find where you left off when you stopped quilting attach a little Post-it flag and put the needle in it. The flag works great and doesn't leave any residue on the fabric. I also use the post-it flag on fabric where I have several yards of a fabric and to easily find where my last cut was I put a bright post-it flag and pin on the area so I can find it fast.
