Heavy Fabrics:

When it comes to the heavy fabrics like leather or velvet, to mark them you can also use washi tape. Leather is quite unforgiving to pins because you can see marks of pins even after a long time. If you are sewing for a big project and you donít want to use pins then use washi tape. Mark the area and then start stitching from the same spot.

Needle Keeper:

Keeping needles at one place is not an easy thing to do and if your needle is broken in the middle of the project then you may run here and there to find the next one. With the help of washi tape, you can definitely keep the needles at one.

What country do you live in? I happen to really like the Panasonic Rulo series robots (we have one) but they are not sold everywhere and there is no English language manual. My wife is from China so she can read the Mandarin language manual. Electrolux AB of Sweden also has a good robot vacuum. In the US Samsung has one of the best robots. Miele's robot is over rated. The round robots cannot clean corners like the triangular (Panasonic and Electrolux) or C-shaped (Samsung) robots can. Funny thing, if our little boy puts his hand in front of our Rulo, it stops, turns the motor off, retracts the wheels and a little electric voice scolds him in Japanese!

Btw, we have a canister vacuum that is quieter than our robot vacuum. Both Miele and the Lux International Intelligence (Lux if you live in Europe, in Australia/New Zealand they are sold under the Sauber brand) are quieter than our robot even with the power nozzle on. Our Lux, and older D820 we bought in Japan, is especially quiet. You almost have to be standing directly over it to hear it running. Miele is almost as quite but not quite.
