The Fabric Maverick says... Plan B may be necessary!

December 16, 2008

Dear Readers,

If you are anything like me, you may have overcommitted to making your own presents this year. I will be able to meet most of my deadlines, but a few might slip. Of course, I also have some friends who are such good sewers that I prefer to give them notions that they can use. I have a few suggestions that you might consider.

As far I am concerned the best notion is the Sidewinder Portable Bobbin Winder (NR-473). This sells for $29.98. If you give this to a friend, you will have a friend forever. When we first put this into inventory, I thought who would ever buy this. It is a good thing that I am good at eating my words. I own one and I do not know how I ever lived without one. In fact, I ask myself why I could not have invented this machine myself. I sent one to my sister for Christmas. She has already opened it and used it. She loves it.

If that is not to your liking perhaps you would like to prepare a little stocking stuffer of:

1. Craft needle compact- $1.79 (NR-453) This is a variety of craft needles from cross stitch -tapestry needles

2, Coats and Clark thread in basic colors of black, natural and white. A 500-yard spool is $2.85.

3. Fiskars Thread Trimmer for $7.95 (NR-418)

4. Steam-A-Seam 2 Double Stick Fusible Web- $4.50 (NR-185)

For under $20.00, you have created a good basic stocking stuffer package.

Do you know anyone who has the wool felting bug? We have recently added a whole line of wool felting products.

Last, but not least, Merchandising has just added a new notion - The Seam Squizzers. This seems to be a very popular notion. I checked several websites and they were all sold out.

 Also check out the holiday store for some great deals. We have aprons, sewing baskets, market bags and more. There are many items for the non-sewer on your list.

Merry Christmas!
