The Latest Thread – Shopping, Fashion School, & Textile Designs

Every week this summer has been packed full of fun! I received my collection of presser feet, I’ve been looking into the Fashion School Crash Course, prepared my next textile collection for sale, and looking forward to my grandson’s birthday especially pictures of his little outfit!  So here’s the latest weekly thread…

Shopping, Fashion School & Textile Designs

(Before we get started  I have *affiliate links in this post and if you buy a product mentioned here I will receive a small commission on your purchase.  The products mentioned here are items that I have used or are planning to use. Thank you in advance for supporting to this blog.)

I’ve had my eye on the sewing machine presser feet I found on *Amazon for a while now, and I finally ordered them.  I decided on the reasonably priced set that fits perfectly!  But now I know why I saved $10-15…. that’s because the kit didn’t come with a plastic storage kit.  The cardboard box works well for storage for now, but I know I will have to find a container to store them as I use them more.  I plan to write about my use and testing of the presser feet so that it may be helpful.

I fell in love with these options when So Sew Easy shared the pin tuck foot functions. Read more here….
