    I always shop discount fabric, patterns and notions. I stockpile stuff so it is there when I get inspired so seldom buy for a specific project in mind

    Most needed discount is: TOOLS!! Machines, Irons, Tables… they are all priced over my head. Starting a new business, discounts on these items- MUCH NEEDED ITEMS, helps my business out emensely. Especially after my work horses are losing steam! YIKES!

    Being a self-taught sewer, and a novice/intermediate sewer, I’d have to say, a great price/ discount on an iron is so needed!! Even the smallest projects that are made of “not-so-high-quality” fabrics can look professional with a great Ironing. I didn’t know that before when I was a complete novice but I definitely see the importance of it now. Especially because I have an Autoimmune disease- effecting my joints and muscles, I’d say a great Pressure iron/ Steamer that offers “effortless ironing and easy gliding”, and most importantly, “less STRAIN to iron out wrinkles”- like the Rowenta Pressure Iron and Steamer, would be a life saver(and would make me less likely to put off my projects)! I wish there were some discounts offered on high quality Irons/steamers. They always offer promotional coupons on fabrics and notions, but never on high-quality Irons/ steamers. Second to that, discount on pattern making classes would be great!

    I just love a 50-75% discount on just about anything that I normally buy. And sometimes on that little something that would just be nice to have/try-out….

    Fabric, absolutely! The best store in my town is now closed, but still it was pricey.

    Quality fabric at discounted or more reasonable prices. There is nothing worse than making a garment or any titem for that matter and have it fall apart after one washing.

    My favorite discount would be 50% on almost anything. the cost of sewing has gotten quite expensive and the economic times have made it harder to stretch the little money I have these days. Obviously a discount on anything I needed at the time would be the best. :)

    Definitely discounts on sewing supplies, most notably fabrics, as they are prohibitively expensive to buy online due to high shipping costs.

    Some descent looking fabric! Haha I have a fabric store here but it holds a lot of cotton for quilting and home decor fabric. I would really love some fashion fabric and also some for my school’s fashion show which I’m making clothes for. I don’t know if they’ll even have what I’m looking for and everywhere else is too pricey!

    My favorite discount has to be dollar patterns – I love collecting them and mixing and matching. My most needed discount? A steamer! It would really help me give a professional look to my projects.

    would love discounts on patterns and shipping of patterns from the us! I live in south africa and have seen some great patterns on colette but can’t afford $28 dollars for 1 pattern.
