    I love sewing but I love it when I can buy something for as cheap as I can make it…especially if it fits just as well too!

    Fabric discounts are a must given that they can get so expensive! I also would love to get a great iron at an affordable price!

    i appreciate fabric discounts the most, as they can often be surprisingly expensive. notions and such usually seem to be fairly reasonable…

    I’d like to see discounts on sewing/design workshops or short classes. These are often quite expensive and it would be great to make them more accessible.

    I could defintely use a great iron, I have a cheap crafting iron and it make pressing and adding interfacing so time consuming. I love any discount on fabric too!

    Most needed item? A new iron because it is very likely that mine will give up in a short time (it already doesn’t work half of the time…) but a most wanted item would be an embroidery machine :)

    I would love to see more affordable fabric that is unique. We can all go to Joanns to grab the same stuff Tom Dick and Harry are using. I get interesting stuff online but I am paying for it. I’s love to find a happy medium.

      i agree. also some of us (me) have to travel an hour & a half just get to a plain old joanns. i always try to find deals online but fabric seems to be one of the hardest things to get a discount on.

      Absolutely! Nothing beats feeling the fabrics in your hands.

      Its hard to go online and know what it really is going to look like. I would love cheaper fabrics that still have a great design aesthetic.

      This machine would be a happy medium between ironing and steaming… I purchased the Rowenta steamer and within seconds (as I was swiping it downwards it got too close &) burned my leg leaving a very funny polka dot tattoo which my husband adores. :) Back to Target it went.

      Agreed 100%, great fabric is so tough to find, and like Melanie said, I have to drive hours to get to the “local” fabric store here.

    I would also have to say an iron. I had a fantastic Rowenta for a long time and it did break. i have bought or have been given 3 cheap irons and none of them compare to a Rowenta, either they leak, cool off while I am ironing or spontaneously decide to get really really hot- I’ve ruined 2 projects because of an iron!

    It would be great if we could encourage an apparel fabric site to offer even a small discount for BurdaStyle community! It is rather difficult to find a decent selection in stores, most are overrun with quilting prints and that awful polar fleece.

    At this point, a great price on an iron!! I have one, but it leaks hot water all over the place…I’d love this one :)
