    I too have many duplicates and many triplicates etc. Of some notions. I have a bag of basic sewing supplies in a class bag that came with a ruler and mat. I usually add to it depending on what type of class I am taking. I have a small mat and ruler and rotary cutter always by my machine and a large mat with a larger ruler and have recently added it's own rotary cutter for there. I was constantly leaving the one cutter behind - it would be at whatever spot I wasn't at at the time! I had an extra cutter just didn't get the aha moment until lots of walking around the room to get the forgotten cutter!

    OH I see there are others like me. I get teased all the time because when others come over to quilt, I have plenty of extras to use if they forget anything, including sewing machines. LOL

    I find it easier to have a set ready to go to retreats. I don't have to think of what to take it is already packed ready to go. I do have more than two of several things I use alot.

    I too have duplicate sewing notions. I have 2 machines, both in the same room but don't feel like running from one side to the other so I keep a set beside each machine. This makes it super easy when I want to pack up one of my machines for travel in our RV.

    Now I'm thinking mmmmmmmmmm, I need 3 sets of notions. My sewing machine is in the family room because it's too crowded in my sewing room, but sometimes I set up my small classroom machine on my cutting table and sew in the sewing room (what a concept!) so I have a set of notions on my cutting table and in the family room, bit I don't have a set for classes. I could stick it in the roller case I use to haul my classroom machine around. Thanks for the idea!!

    We should think of a name for the second, or third, or fourth sets. but you are more organized, having a set packed and ready to go. Good plan

    I have duplicates of my duplicates! No way I would have just one of anything I need and use for quilting. Unless it was a long arm! I have more rulers and scissors then other tools.

    I have a machine and a complete stitching bag packed at all times ready to grab and go. I usually teach one day a week and stitch another day so it is a time saver for me to keep it packed. My quilt buddies always know that they can borrow from me because I've always got it in my magic green bag. I have a separate bag packed for everything (church bag, library bag, school bag etc). This habit has kept me organized and has saved me hours of packing and unpacking. I've always loved making bags so it has been a perfect use for them. As they are all different, once glance tells me that I have the right bag and I know it has the stuff I need.
