"Hey, thanks for this! I've been using a template that a friend made for me to make pockets for the backs of my son's shirts, but it never occurred to me to make a YouTube video of it. Good move. And, of course, now that he's getting…"

"The first time it alerts, it just vibrates. If you don't confirm with a button push, then it will alert again (in 5 minutes I think) and will vibrate and then beep. I really hate this "feature". I wish it could be set to always beep…"
