    I thought about this one for awhile, and I decided that discounts are always very, very helpful, no matter what they are for. :)

    I need a sewing machine discount…badly! But discounted fabric would also be nice!

    Any discount is great! I think I can call myself the outlet and sales queen… Nothing more exciting than getting your hands on something you really want for a fantastic price!

    I would say an iron as well. Mine is old and was cheap at the time I bought it! It leaks water all the time and I can’t control the steam when I use it. I also have a very small board, so a discount on a good iron would let me buy a better, bigger ironing board :)

    Interfacing! I use it on everything so I need a lot of it -but it can get pricy if you have to buy a lot.

    fabric, especially wools and wool blends. it seems that the prices are just outrageous, at least at my local shops

    That’s a really good question really,a discount on anything is well appreciated.But,with Christmas in only a few days and with me still needing to finish up a few gifts that I’m sewing….I’d say a great discount on a well working sewing machine would be excellent.

    (Other than that,I’d say food because thats super important.)

    Congrats to the person who wins.Happy Holidays:]

    Fabric, fabric, fabric. All of the fabric I want to use is wildly expensive and it is an ongoing expense.

    That would certainly be fabric and sewing/ knitting supplies!

    I usually shop for bargains, but especially on books. I love books to fill my shelves. Sewing books, craft books, art and design books. And as a grad student every little discount helps!

    I love free shipping, half price thread, 99 cent patterns, half price notions which means sewing machine needles and the ott-light bulbs discounted! What would be really cool is discounted dry cleaning fees. I sew professionally and need those services often (the pressing part of it) but it adds up big time!

    At the moment it’s discount on vogue sewing patterns because you can’t get them where I live and the shipping costs to Europe are quite high already. But I would love to get discount on quality fabric as well. (Basically for the same reason)

    My favorite discounts are for 20% and up on fabrics; 40% for one item from a hobby site that carries sewing supplies. So, these are my “favorite things” Nehmah

    Right now, I can barely afford thread but usually it’s quality fabrics. A dressmaker’s form in my size, to replace my homemade one, would be great too!

    Special fabric days- I am lucky to have a Mill End store near me which gives a great discount on designer and specialty fabrics which I could never afford at standard pricing

      Hi Weather!
      Have you thought about making your own? I have seen the step by step directions for making a custom dress form perfectly fitted to YOU, using an old t-shirt, duct tape and some kind of batting or filling. (You need a friend to help tape you up).

    A discount on fabric and patterns would be great. Would love to see unique fabric which is so hard to find at the chain fabric stores. Of course a discount on a great iron would be wonderful.
