    Around a hundred dollars per year. I have a problem with hoarding them.

    Honestly, not that much. Maybe around $20-$25. My mom has a lot of notions that she has saved up through the years so I usually go through her stash first and find what I need. I’m a poor college student, so I try my best to work with what I already have!

    Oh boy, I don`t know if I really want to know how much I spend on notions. As I slowly use up my mom`s old stash I`m finding that I`m spending more than i would like to, even though I always shop on sale. I`d say about $200 this year. YIKES.

    i don’t spent very much, maybe $50-100 a year? i am a knitter by nature, many of my sewing projects use stash notions as they are small and easy.

    A lot less than fabric as I only buy when something really catches my eye or to match and item’s fabric. About $40-50 each year…much less than all of my yardage.

    I’ve been stocking up on quilting basics like rulers, etc. so this number might be more inflated than in other years, but probably around $200.

    I don’t usually track the cost – it might scare me if I did. Guessing $100 at least. Happy Holiday to everyone!

    I would guess around $50 or less. I’ve lucked out recently and found a lot of notions at garage sales!

    I’ve only started sewing. But based on the last two months, in which I spent about $5-$10, I would spend between 30 to 50 dollars per year.

    About $25 dollars. I buy when I need needle, thread and buttons.

    I love all kinds of sewing notions! I can’t resist them! It would be hard to say how much I spend on them, but probably about $100 a year. This would be a fantastic prize package for anyone! Gail

    Probably about $20? I try to use things already in my stash, or to reuse notions off pieces I’m upcycling.
