Firstly while I was browsing my feeds yesterday I came upon this lovely blog http://bunnyhill.blogspot.com/ and wouldn't you know it, she talks about her recent return from Houston Quilt Market and one of her purchase for her store. Thank you very much I think I'd like one of these.
Anne describes these as: From a Japanese company, they are simply the best around. You can use them to mark your quilting lines, applique lines, or trace your embroidery. The marks remove by fabric eraser or a little water. She has them listed on her website, just follow the link from her blog. I can't tell you how pleased I am that there is another option for transferring embroidery designs.
The next item that I think would be a real time saver is this little beauty.
The White's Sidewinder, now I know I read on someone's blog that they had just purchased one (sorry I can't remember who it was). If you have one of these or perhaps have seen it demonstrated, I'd love to hear what you think about it. There's nothing more frustrating that being half way through a seam, or a quilting line and running out of bobbin thread, and having to un-thread your machine just to wind a bobbin.
Next on my list would be a quilters calender with the patterns to make the quilts that are featured. Or perhaps a new book, I've seen that several of you have been purchasing this book.
I'd love to hear your thoughts on the book, whether it's a good purchase, and if you have suggestions for which calendar to buy.
My "sweetie" works hard for his wage so I don't want it wasted on items that wouldn't be well used.
Now to complete the Christmas flow here, I know I've already mentioned to you that http://www.sewmamasew.com/blog2/ is having a month of Christmas gift making idea, but did you also know that http://www.cottonspice.com/CSblog/ is running a similar thing, only not quite so long. Both well worth a visit, you may just find an item that you want to make for someone.
Happy Stitching, and thanks so much for taking the time to give me your opinion and thoughts.
Has anyone used those magnetic bag/purse closures? They don't come with instructions. I need to know if I'm supposed to make 2 buttonholes for the prongs to go through, or do you just hammer then through the fabric?
