Sewing related purchases

I was in Richmond for the past three days.  Sometimes while there on business, I get an opportunity to visit Hancock's, not this time.  It was mostly all work and no play.  I was happy when I arrived home this evening to find two boxes were waiting for me.  One was from Sawyer Brooks; I ordered two fabric pieces from their current sale.  Both pieces are for spring/summer garments.  The other box was from Birch Street Clothing; I ordered two rolls of Swedish Tracing Paper and you get the third one free.  I use this paper a lot.  They are so prompt in sending.  I have another order from Denver Fabrics that I am not sure when it will arrive.  I really have not received any response from them as to the status of my order. 

I got an email regarding my zipper order.  Some are not currently available and are on back order.  The key separating zipper is on its way to me and hopefully the others will follow soon.  I have to say I am envious of those of you who live in or near a large city with sewing notion sources near by.

I am so anticipating doing some sewing this weekend.  Later.


  1. Can't wait to see your new fabric purchases.

  2. I hear you on being envious of those who are close to good sewing notions and fabrics!

  3. Linda did you know you can get a whole bolt of Pattern Ease, which is very similar to swedish tracing paper, from (NAYY). It's 46" wide and 50 yards. I used this before I switched to 48" wide tracing paper from an art supply store.
