    I have been going through my storage boxes and realised i have purchase far too many items that are the same including
    8 packs of quilters sewing needles,<20 needles in each pack>
    234 threads some the same colour
    8 pairs of scissors, some the same sizes
    4 templates are the same size and shapes
    I could go on but i guess i purchased when its cheap and never look at what i actually have until i decided to sort out my storage boxes i do think i am becoming a quilting hoarder lol whoooops

    I found five packages of rotary blades with five in each package. Every time I went to Joann's with a 50 % off coupon, I stocked up not realizing how many I had. Now, I'm so glad I found them and while start changing my blade when I need to.

    Ha ha....you'd better stay out of the Vintage Sewing Machine section, of the forum, because there is some serious hoarding going on over there but it's more difficult to find places to put all of the vintage beauties that follow us home :roll:

    Indeed i have had to purchase 2 more mini storage boxes to add all the small items i have purchased over the months gone by. Everything new has to have a place to go ,
