I am so excited about sharing this product review with you all today! As a quilting instructor, and home sewer, I find that I am always faced with how people can safely have a beverage in class without endangering your own sewing machine, or your neighbor's sewing machine, from accidental spillage. As we all know, our sewing tools are not cheap and we don't want any type of liquid to come into contact with anything.
Couple the beverage safety issue with the inevitable scrap/garbage issue and we have a couple of problems that I think most quilters/sewers/quilting instructors face on a regular basis.
I have been looking for a product that would help us all deal with these trials - and quilters - I think I may have found the answer!! *Insert drum-roll* The ScrapMaBob by The Original Scrap Box company is a truly amazing and well thought out design! This product is actually marketed to scrap-bookers but hey we quilters like a cup of tea while we generate scraps too!!
Here it is!! (Yes that is my Jane Austen tea mug)
The ScrapMaBob can hold a 32 oz drink - that's a Big Gulp if you like those! The frame is all steel so it is nice and strong and easy to clean. The scrap bag is a nice canvas that is large enough for lots of scraps (or snacks!). You can never have enough room for scraps in my house!
I absolutely love how well thought out the cup holder is - notice the open slot on the right side for a mug handle? My tea mug is easy to pick up but yet it still holds the mug safely in place and away from my sewing machine.
The scrap bag is easy to remove just by squeezing and lifting out. The bag is very large so you won't have to remove it very often - unless you are going on a scrap busting marathon!! the only assembly required is threading the bag onto the ring and attaching the bag to the cup holder - a nice quick set-up that allows more time for sewing.
The clamp, to attach the ScrapMaBob to your work area, is very large and can accommodate even a very thick table so this will easily fit most work areas (maximum table width 3.25”). If you don't want the scrap bag, but only the drink holder, you can just leave it off like in the picture.
Final verdict - I really love the ScrapMaBob and I am going to recommend that my local quilt shops carry this very well thought-out, well-built and useful product. I can see quilters wanting one by their sewing machines at the very least; but, if you're like me, you'll also want one by your cutting table and perhaps even on your ironing board.
This is a must have tool that every quilter should have!
