My dream gift is a sit-down quilting machine. Of course, the odds of getting that this year are slim, so gift cards to quilt shops are a totally welcome and appreciated alternative. -- soparkaveataoldotcom

Always crazy for more fabric. I have a small stash, as I buy for specific projects. So, I have a lot of scraps and thread, but not many larger pieces (just those that ended up not working out and needed a different color).

Looks like a great shop. Thanks so much for sharing. I'm looking for a new set of embroidery scissors this year.

Anything fabric is always a terrific gift!!

Margaret said...

Hmmm. This may be kind of mundane, but I am hoping fot a new rotary cutting mat. The one I bought this year feels like I am cutting on concrete, so I'd like a replacement. Do you think Santa knows of a good replacement? And of course, fabric. A quilter never has enough fabric. ;)
