Goodness, didn't realize Nancy had passed. I loved her vids, she was always great to watch! Agree with you on her site; it's a winnerLIke this!
BTW, although Nancy has recently passed on, her site is still one of the best sources for useful, well made sewing notions (and patterns, and instruction books) you'll find.
I got to thinking and thought I'd mention that when I said I must be historic, I didn't mean I was patting myself on the back. I meant that it sounded a few steps beyond elderly. Hope I didn't turn anyone off by the comment.
I have figured out that if I sit at right angles to my desk, I might be able to anchor my sewing to the front edge of it with a small spring clamp. Or maybe even just shut the end of the fabric into the kneehole drawer of the little desk. When I thought about it more, I remembered that I have anchored fabric before using heavy books. And once even with a small cutting board weighted down with a bag of potatoes!
I think sometimes I must be a very weird person.
