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!!
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.
It was a fab surprise once I started delving into it and realised it wasn’t just magazines!
What a great surprise bonus! The swatch thingy is a new one on me, I must admit, but could prove quite useful.
Hope so, it might spur me on to get my stash a bit more organised 🙂
Good idea! Sounds like their party planner was very smart! I saw the spools of thread right away. Not the cheap stuff even!
No, it’s definitely the good stuff, and full spools at that! 🙂
Oh I need the scissor buddy for sure!! I usually have 4 pairs around and still not in the place I need them!!!! ✂️✂️✂️✂️
Beats hanging em round my neck! I’ve seen some do that but i think i’m too accident prone!
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!
Oooo no, your Bernina wouldn’t tolerate them at all! 😉
Wow! I love free stuff, but free SEWING stuff is the best! Looks like a great & useful selection :-))
Yea, it’s fab, someone had been really thoughtful when they’d put it all together! 🙂
Love the swatch key ring thingy, sounds like a great idea!
Maybe could do with one 10 times bigger to sort out my unmanageable stash, lol 😉
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! 🙂
The reusable swatch kit looks very interesting. I think I need one too! LOL
I wish I had a load to give to all my blogging friends! 🙂
Me too! LOL I’m going to search the web to find it.
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!
Love the swatch kit & the scissors buddy best inventions ever 🙂
I really need to see if I can find another one as a giveaway on my blog! 😉
Ooh what a wonderful treat! Can’t beat a goodie bag!!!
