As a seamstress one of my biggest peeves is not having what I need on hand and constantly having to run to the store to get what I need. For example, not having the right color thread or not having the right size zipper etc. Fortunately for me I now very rarely have to make those emergency trips as I am very well stocked.And it is all thanks to Ebay. The lovely DMC embroidery threads believe it or not only cost me about $23, a bargain for sure, and the zippers were about $27. Even machine sewing thread I buy the same way......I usually keep them all color co-ordinated in these plastic containers, I haven't brought thread for years, it is so lovely to have all the colors I need. I know a lot of people are not that crazy for Ebay but when it comes to stocking up on supplies for very reasonable costs I have to give it high marks.
A few of you have asked where I purchase my felt in past posts, (I would get that from Ebay too if they sold it in bulk). I get my felt from Prairie Point Junction, a link is over on the right of my blog under favorite shops, I have always had great customer service from them and that is the only place I buy felt from now.
Well there you have it, tips of the day for Monday, now I am going to go and use some of the stuff I just talked about.
Have a wonderful day!
