The box arrived yesterday, and this is what I found inside:
Now, what to add to the box to get it ready for its next journey and let the fun begin again! I've been a participant in SewCalGal's Free Motion Quilting Challenge this year (link to this challenge can be found in the right sidebar), so it seemed fitting to add several items of interest to budding free motion quilters. Into the box goes a copy of Don Linn's Sophisticated Stitches, a copy of Maurine Noble's book Machine Quilting Made Easy, a rotary cutter, and two spools of variegated cotton machine quilting thread to add to the two spools of Gutermann quilting thread already in the box.
Something old, something new ... I've collected vintage sewing items for many years, and since there was a bit of extra room in the box, it now contains two vintage 1940-50s needle books (Happy Home and Sewing Susan), two packages of vintage 40s-50s transfer patterns, a circa 1950 automatic needle threader with thread cutter, and the ultra-new Groove Quilt Pattern by Emily Cier! Who knows what else I'll find to add before the giveaway ends!
Sewingly Along blog where Cherise manages to keep track of all of us! A copy of the rules is also included in each box, along with a list of where it has previously traveled!
I'll choose a winner at random next Tuesday evening and post the winner on Wednesday, November 28! Hope to send the box your way!
