    Hum… most needed discount would be on shoes to be honest. Need a pair of rain boots stat! But if that weren’t the case I would say on good fabric.

    Iron would be awesome, I have to steal my roommates when I need to iron.

    I love getting the Hancock’s Fabrics coupon for 40 or 50% off notions. I use it to try new sewing accessories or add to my needle inventory. Helps keep the cost of my hobby in control.

    Christmas discounts on gifts and food are great, it is such an expensive time of year, I love to give and finding things within a tight budget is hard. I enjoy making gifts but sometimes its not always cheaper.

    Definitely fabric. Good fabric reasonably priced is so difficult to find here.

    My favorite discount is the military discount! Sewing on the service members budget can take some major creativity.

    I really really need a good iron!! A discount would be awesome!! Mine is not working properly, it leaks water, because it takes a long time to get warm and then it gets way too hot!!

    Hmmm… any discount is fine as long i get what i need (the product) and it gives some satisfaction of a reasonable price!

    I could use a deep discount on a really good sewing machine. My cheapy Singer from Target does the job but now that I’m looking to do more serious sewing… could use a professional machine and not a hobby one.

    definitely fabric discounts! I am always surprised at the cost of fabrics.

    My favourite and most needed discounts are always for sewing and sewing appliances and anything else related. Like for instance a high quality Rowenta iron, i had the same iron as long i can remember and it barely works. Don’t even get me started on the ironing board. I can’t afford a new one until way after christmas.

    I would love to see big discounts on sewing machines at least once in a while. Or long arm quilter discounts. they are so expensive you almost need a second mortgage to be able to the upscale models.

    Most needed discount? Free shipping and cheaper price for sets of sewing – doesn’t matter if it is sewing, beading or quilting set for beginners. If I want to learn something new, having set helps me to understand if I love doing it or it is not really for me.

    I especially love discounts on patterns and books – can’t stand to pay full price!

    I think that free shipping is my favourite. That way I don’t have to think about the final cost as I know what ir will be before I get to the checkout.

    I am a discount freak, it is difficult to pick just one. It is to the point it is almost physically upsetting to pay full price for anything. Retailmenot is a site that I always check before buying anything online.

    Favourite discount is on fabrics. Most needed discount is on a new sewing machine.

    I love getting discounts on patterns because they can be pretty expensive at full price, and combined with the cost of fabric and notions, sometimes it’s not very cost efficient to sew your own clothes!

    I’m torn between clearance prices and free shipping. Sometimes free shipping makes even full price items well worth the cost.

    Favorite / most needed discount is on shipping when ordering online. In stores, I like to get a larger discount when I’m purchasing more.
