    I love it when I can get 50% off items like cutting boards, rotary cutter, etc..

    I would like to find a discount on an adjustable dress form. It’s one thing that I don’t have and can’t afford. The other discount I would dike to see is on thread. I use a lot of colorful fabrics and the cost of matching thread begins to add up.

    I love discounts on fabric and notions. Although it seems like discounts on fabric are much easier to come by!

    I love thrift stores for really awesome vintage fabric that is super-cheap. You can also get tons of buttons and zippers for almost nothing. I would appreciate a student discount for when I buy new things at joann or other fabric stores. I’m broke but I love to sew!

    My favorite discount is when I have a 40-50% off coupon and purchase something on Senior Citizen Discount day each month. I get an additional 10% off for being old. Sorry to say it does not include sewing machines, irons, etc.

    Ha ha ha – at this point in my life, my most needed discount is on diapers!!! They disappear so quickly and if you try to stretch it out, you end up spending on rash cream (don’t worry, we only tried it once!) Other than that, some fabric discounts would be nice, or discounts for sewing machine tune-ups!

    My favorite MOST needed discount is the 50% off coupons from JoAnn’s Fabrics that I get in the mail. I also really like their 10/20% etc off entire purchase coupons. I couldn’t make the amount of costumes I do for such a deal without those!

    I have yet to experience anything other than the common drugstore iron. Must admit, I’m quite intrigued by the hype…

    zippers – they’re rarely on sale and can get quite expensive.

    I love a place near where I grew up…“THE FARMER’S STORE” --my favorite discount finds…zippers for 5 cents, mounds of crazy colored vintage pearl cotton (I got 30 balls of kelly green for 5 bucks) and awesome prints and fabrics that you can’t find someplace like JoAnns. On a sidenote, they also have tons of cowboy boots and soft, cotton undershirts that come out of this weird closet in boxes with tissue paper. The same women have been working in this place for 40 years plus! It is an experience.

    The discount I most need is a deep discount on a longarm quilting machine. Those tops just keep stacking up!! (like bunnies!)

    I love, love discounts on patterns…sometimes they’re too expensive to pay full price. I like to buy 3-6 at a time, so 50-70% is always good! Also more cool fabric discounted online would be great. I love my local joanns, but they have way too much quilters & fleece fabric…not anything unique.

    Pattern discounts are my favorite. The reality of it is that fabric purchasing is an addiction I can’t help and I have lots of fabric already; its the patterns I’m lacking so a discount on those is always welcome.

    I would loe to have a discount on good Burda patterns and on quality fabric. It would be great if the shipping cost could be reduced too.

    My favourite discount is on fabric. This is why I tend to focus on recycled clothing projects.
