    I bought the Sew Line portable needle threader that looks like a lipstick. No, I don’t recommend it because it broke after a couple of uses.

  2. Ruth Quinn says:

    HI,
    I just discovered tracing paper. Great for tracing motifs and pinning on your quilt. Stitch away and it rips off great,leaving little residue.

  3. Tammy says:

    I just bought my second Ottlite and I love them, so yes I would recommend them to any crafter. Thanks for the chance to win.

  4. Jean Bissell says:

    Most recent purchase was full size easy angle. I gave my junior size to a friend who is just getting into quilting.

  5. GwenH says:

    The most recent quilting notion that I bought was a pair of Duck Bill Applique Scissors and I just love them, makes cutting applique piece’s out so much easier.

  6. Lori Smanski says:

    So far I have only purchased the necessities to get started. I love my mat and rotary cutter

  7. Vivian says:

    I bought a binding ruler, no more fudging my binding, it’s fit’s perfect every time.

  8. Carol says:

    I bought the “Twister” tools – both large and small and they
    have been great fun to use. Not only do you get the pinwheel, but the leftovers can be made into a scrap quilt….very little waste and lots of fun…..been thinking
    about getting the Strip Tube Ruler….we’ll see….

  9. rosemarie says:

    most recent tool/notion was 1/4″ tiger tape. helps me to sew even stitches. thank you for the give away.
