We’re continuing to show off our wonderful admin/moderators along with their pick for the Admin Love Bundle that is part of the Grand Prize in our Fall in Love with Sewing Giveaway and a little bit about how they fell in love with sewing!
Today is our last day of showing off all our lovely admins, their picks for the Admin Love Bundle included in the Grand Prize for our Fall in Love with Sewing Giveaway, and how they fell in love with sewing shares. I hope you enjoyed them as much as I did!
Lindsay’s pick for the Admin Love Bundle was a pair of mini duck scissors. Once again, something I don’t happen to use! I usually use small embroidery scissors, but I might need to pick some of these up and see if I prefer them!
Sylvia loves a good thread bundle! It’s nice to have a match for whatever project you start up without a trip to the store to grab a matching thread color.
Amy suggested pattern weights. And I couldn’t find exactly what I would think of pattern weights available on Amazon very easily and Angela suggested hockey pucks! That is what she uses and loves! So here are some hockey pucks that would work fabulously for pattern weights! Pattern weights are so nice for knit and delicate fabrics that you don’t stretch or puncture the fabric.
Bekah and Amy above suggested a bundle of measuring tapes! It’s always nice to have on within reach and a back up in case a little one decides they’re on a measuring mission that day 😉
Morland brought on some great stretch needles for her pick! Using a stretch needle with knits makes a huge huge difference! I even love a stretch needle much more then a ballpoint for almost all knits. Stretch are better for spandex blends, which are most common these days. Ballpoint does work for interlocks and sweater knits though.
Jody went with a chalk marking wheel. This is so quick and easy to mark and take off your pieces. I use one all the time, especially on darker fabrics or fabrics that can’t handle heat (I love using frixon pens, but you need heat to remove the marking).
Teri loves to have a can of 505 temporary basting spray handy in her sewing space! It’s great to temporarily hold anything in place while you stitch it.
Up next we have the Made for Mermaids team. Megan is my sister <3 And they help out admining and monitoring the group when they aren’t busy handling their own group!
Tomorrow we will be highlighting our fabric sponsors that generously donated to our fabric bundle included in the prizes! Don’t forget to enter the contest and take advantage of our huge site wide sale! It’s the last sale of the year!
