Last year, we posted a gift/wish guide for the holidays. If you missed it, you can see it here. We had so much fun, we thought we’d do it again this year. Who knows, maybe this will become an annual thing. But for now, let’s get this party started…
First up for 2019 is the Yazzii bag. Imagine having your sewing, knitting, or even jewelry neatly organized in a bag that you can grab and go. You can visit their website at yazzii.com. To top it all off, they have a page called Inspirations full of ideas on how to personalize the bag to make it your own. Check it out: yazzii.com/inspirations/
The people at Quiltfolk put out a beautiful magazine four times a year. The publication is ad-free, and some of us think they should be called books rather than magazines. Well, Quiltfolk is getting into the gifting market with some beautiful stationery, jigsaw puzzles, kitchen goods, mugs, and even journals. You can see their shop at quiltfolk.com. You can even find gift bundles with past issues included. Perfect!
Ever wish the sewing area on your machine was just a little bigger? You can have your wish granted at Sew Steady. They make acrylic tables and cut them to fit your machine. There are many sizes to choose from and you can even get one for your Featherweight. Hop on over to their website to see what might work for you and get it on your wish list early.
When someone mentions EPP, do you know what they are talking about? English Paper Piecing, of course. And I have to say, EPP is not your Grandmother’s Flower Garden anymore! At paperpieces.com, you’ll find designer projects, quilt-alongs, tutorials, and fabric as well as all those great pieces and templates. Many of the new patterns are very modern. If there is travel in your future, this might be just the thing for you while you’re away from your sewing machine.
Have you seen these? Maybe I’m the last person on the planet to find them, but I think they’re pretty awesome. They are called “Bobbin Buddies” and are used to keep your wound bobbins with the spools of thread they contain. Brilliant! If you have many variations of neutral, imagine having the ability to know immediately which neutral thread spool goes with the correct neutral bobbin. Or keep your cotton bobbins away from your polyester blend threads. Mine have been put to good use and I may need to get more. You can find them on Amazon.com.
We hope you enjoyed this week’s guide. Check back next week for more fun suggestions for your holiday gift or wish lists. And if you have a gift idea, leave it in the comments below.
