Hidden Storage Compartment Quick Tip

All posts may contain affiliate links.

Does the hidden storage compartment on your sewing machine look like a tangled mess of bobbin threads, needles and pins? Or maybe it’s littered with loose presser feet and lint fibers. Mine used to be filled with extra buttons, straight pins, dull needles and bobbins before I discovered this little trick.

Keep your hidden storage compartment neat and tidy with this simple tip from The Sewing Loft

Like many BabyLock sewing machines, my Destiny came with this cool little treasure chest. It’s filled with all sorts of little goodies and tools needed in my everyday sewing. Think specialty feet, a cleaning brush, extra bobbins, needles and that handy screw driver. But most importantly, it comes with these cute removable trays.

Holy Cow, I had no idea that these trays could help me keep the hidden storage compartment neat and tidy. Such a great tip from The Sewing Loft!

At first I didn’t really pay them much mind but then I realized that they actually fit inside the hidden storage compartment…. Hello, why did I not put that together sooner?!

    Well, the intended use is certainly functional. However, I prefer the candy style for color… and taste. Lol I say mix M&M with M&M Peanuts.

  2. I am having constant shredding problems and some freezing problems with my Destiny II. Anybody else?

    • Hello Rita,
      It is true that they have similar characteristics but each brand is a completely different company.
      I love my serger, the air jet threading is a dream!
