Pin Cushions, The Magic Threader and Maddisons

The (now huge) bag of goodies that are to be sold at The Feast on the 7th June is getting bit and this Saturday’s Stitchees made lots of pin cushions and cushion covers for the stall – we evan had two boys help make labels in preparation for the stall. They even left comments on our wipe-board saying they really enjoyed themselves and want to come back. 😀

Some of the finished ‘products’ for The Feast stall 🙂

We spent some time cooing over a magic needle threader… never thought I personally would do that but seriously, it was cool. Pop the needle in, press the little leaver and the needle comes out threaded and there is a little blade to cut the end of the thread.

If you are like me and starting to need magnifying glasses to thread needles then this is fab!

I did see a tutorial over on Creativebug that said you should ‘needle your thread’ and not ‘thread your needle’ –  you hold the thread still in one hand and you move the needle to the thread – I tried it and it does work… I still want one of those magical needle threaders though


We got Gifts!

As well as giving the group multiple sewing machines, Ian from Maddison’s came in with another large bag of goodies.

After cooling like mad people over the magical threader in a big bag of donations from Maddison’s, the house clearance specialist on Knights Hill, we found this… does anyone know what it is?

Maddison's gave us a box of tools - we would love to know what these are though - look complicated!!

I think the group have a new cool tin for all the buttons which Tara couldn’t resist buying in the shop.

They do have some cool stuff and I had to leave quick before I became tempted!
