- Notions can include items that are sewn or otherwise attached to a finished article, such as buttons, snaps, and collar stays, but the term also includes small tools used in sewing, such as thread, pins, marking pens, and seam rippers. The noun is almost always used in the plural.

On the left is will be the bottom drawer with tools I don't use often and extras of my seam rippers, tracing wheels and seam gauges.
In the middle, is the middle drawer with tracing paper, turning tools and rotary cutters.
The one on the right is my main drawer with the things I reach for most often.
I might clear out the drawer that's below the third drawer. It has knitting things that I could store elsewhere. Actually going through my knitting things should be a future project.
And, you may say ... what about pins! I think I will do a separate blog on pins. I have many opinions about pins.
