The Goodie Bag!!

When I went on the sewing with silk day we were all given a Goodie Bag!!   Can’t believe I forgot to tell you about this little beauty!

It didn’t look too exciting at first glance.  A couple of magazines and a few leaflets.  BUT!!! On a closer inspection, and over a cup of coffee there was all this in the bottom of the bag………..!!

A box of 10 full sized spools of thread!

I’ve not opened this but I think you stick bits of you fabric from your stash on these and keep them in your handbag for when you’re out and about. (correct me if i’m wrong!!)

Scissor Buddy- fastens your scissors to your sewing machine so you don’t loose them. Ingenious!!

Needles, tape measure, pen and a book a sewing feet!

There was also 2 magazines from sew direct which have the new patterns from Vogue and McCalls in.

I know how a kids feels now when he gets a party bag!!

So all in all a fab day!!

I sew and play golf. I blog about my sewing as I don't think you'd want to read about my golf. It's bad enough watching it on telly! Contact me via email -


  1. Lucky you! The class already seemed to be good value and now, even better. These are obviously the workshops to sign up for if you can.

    • It was definitely good value, I feel quids in!! A silk top, goodie bag, lunch and a day with Heather and all the other lovely sewers! 🙂

    I love a party bag and that looks a real goody. Really like the swatch key ring idea too.

  3. What a great surprise bonus! The swatch thingy is a new one on me, I must admit, but could prove quite useful.

  4. Oh I need the scissor buddy for sure!! I usually have 4 pairs around and still not in the place I need them!!!! ✂️✂️✂️✂️

  5. OOOOOH ! Total gadget envy! I could use them all, except the feet, which my Bernina mightn’t accommodate too well. 😉 Know you’re going to enjoy them all!

  6. I would say that’s a very good goodie bag! That day was such good value. I love sewing gadgets! Even if they don’t get used a lot, haha!

    • I’m thinking I should get in touch with Janome and see if they’ll let me have another goodie bag to give away!! They can only say no! 🙂

  7. What – no cake? Everything else looks well worth having, and I am jumping in with swatch kit envy too. All that and you learned to make a great top. Well worth the time and money!

    • Cake!!! You’re right, I never thought! Cake always goes in goodie bags. I’ll put it on my feedback form when I go to my next class there!
