We’re continuing to show off our wonderful admin/moderators with a little bit about how they fell in love with sewing, along with their pick for the Admin Love Bundle that is part of the Grand Prize for our Fall in Love with Sewing Giveaway .
First up today is the lovely Aretha! She picked a pack of needles. It’s so nice to not have to worry about breaking one, needing a sharper, newer one mid project! This pack is an assortment of different needles so any project you decide hopefully this pack will have you covered!
Lacy said she absolutely loved having a travel sewing machine! Now, this is something I do not have personally! She has this smaller Janome sewing machine she can travel easier with and can sew while she’s gone!
Katy added a nice rotary blade. I have to agree whole heartedly! I love having a nice rotary blade to cut out my pattern pieces, especially a rectangle piece with a quilters ruler! This is a Kai brand that is my personal favorite! There isn’t a safety button though so you must be careful if you have little ones around!
Kaara suggested a big cut mat. Oh yesssss! I loved when I could finally afford a really large cut mat! When you’re cutting out larger adult size pattern pieces the larger the cut mat the better!!
Rachel wanted to add a bodkin. A bodkin is another that I must confess I don’t have in my own sewing space, but maybe I will grab one and try it out 🙂
Stacey went with a bodkin as well! It must be worth grabbing and trying there were several admins that suggested this for the bundle!
Amanda suggested yet another thing I’m missing out on currently!! An Ottlite LED Lamp. She has one and loves it! I’m currently hoping Santa hears my call for one! 😉
Caitlin wanted to share a dressform! I’ve never used a dress form much other then to look cute in my sewing space and snap a picture on every now and then. I could find a small size (Bust: 33-40″Waist: 26-33″Hips: 35-42″ ), medium (Bust: 39-46″Waist: 32-40″Hips: 41-47″), large (Bust: 44-50″ Waist: 37-43″ Hips: 46-52″), full figure (Bust: 48-54″ Waist: 41-47″ Hips: 51-57″), petite (Bust: 30-36″ Waist: 22-28″Hips: 31-37″), and child that you can pick which suits your sewing best!
Megan went with one of my favorite things in my own sewing space: Frixon pens. They’re so great for marking pattern pieces quickly and then the ink dissapears with a little heat. You can use your iron or throw it in the dryer to remove the markings.
Riley suggested a roll of Pellon 810. This is great to use for tracing off patterns. It’s almost cloth-like, but sheer and has a grid which makes it great for pattern tracing.
Beth suggested adding Wash Away Hem Tape. This is something I used constantly before I had a coverstitch machine. It really helps stabilize a knit while hemming on a machine so you don’t get waves from the machine slightly stretching the knit fabric as it pulls it through the feed dogs. It is also handy just to temporarily hold something in place perfectly while you sew!
Liesel was one of the first to find her bundle item and we were all in awe of it! It is a small rope light you can stick to your sewing machine to give you more light right were you need it! Genius! I have to put that on my wish list for sure!
We have another fun batch of admins tomorrow as well! If you missed it here is the first day of admin love bundle!
