  • "I don't think the morning rush at a coffee shop are going to want or be willing to stand in a queue when a stir stick takes a second or less and more than one person can use them at a time!Unless they install 100s of them? Still seems very silly.1"

  • "I'm a graphic and fibre artist so my tools are either small; hooks, needles, pens or bulky; yarn, fabric, paper, etc.I have had great success creating storage out of both reused containers, i.e. I bought myself some bubble bath and it came in a tin, the tin now holds crochet hooks and charity shop finds. Each of my active fibre projects lives in a repurposed bowl. Some are actually bowls, but most are charity shop finds of plant pots.It makes my work space organized *and* pretty. :D "

  • "I've been wearing glasses for 40 years and have loved the advances in plastic, for both lenses and frames, in that time.I currently have designer frames by Fossil, which are, I assume, acetate and have the all in one rims with nose things. I find them much more comfortable and durable than ones with separate nose pieces.I don't work in a shop, but I do fibre designs so I am often moving between looking at a screen to adjust a pattern and then at something very close up, i.e. a bit of knitting or sewing. I have found that no glasses stay up on me no matter up, but in my case it's because my ears are different heights and my specs warp really quickly no matter what they are made of!What I wonder about these new glasses is: will they take my prescription? I am so short sighted that even with the latest in technology/thinning/etc my lenses are too thick for quite a lot of frames. I can't wear metal at all, for example, because it's too thin to hold my lens. And now I have added long sightedness and varifocals they are thicker than ever.I would also be worried about the hinges on those. In theory no screw *sounds* good, but what happens if the hinge breaks? I would imagine you are out your glasses until you can get them fixed, and that would be me bumping into things. :DThe price sounds good though."

  • "The amount of storage is great, but the worktop is much too small. My actually sewing/knitting/crocheting/crafting table is a double length Ikea desk, so about 6 feet long and 3 feet wide. And I use every inch of it when I'm working. "
