    Santa's quilting gift list...

    So I asked santa for a Mega Hoop for my bernina for christmas and a bias binding speciality foot.
    It got me to wondering what you girls have asked for relating to your quilting. ???

    I asked for specialty threads and sewing tools. No one wants to buy those items for me. They all asked for other sugestions. It is sad when no one listens when you tell them what you really want. Guess I'll be my own Santa Claus.

    My DH and I are not exchanging gifts; however, I put the accuquilt cutting machine and some dies on my amazon wish list just in case he changes his mind... LOL. otherwise, I will eventually buy them for myself when I see a major sale.

    The only quilty gift I have asked for is a Prairie Pointer and a gift certificate to my favorite LQS. My family doesn't have any problem buying me anything quilting related. They know how to google! I was suprised last year with the apple core die for my Accuquilt Go. I had just mentioned in passing that I wanted to make an apple core quilt and Santa brought me the die!

    I want another sewing machine with a bigger throat. Since they are expensive I want cash to pay for professional quilting for the really large quilts. Maybe I'll get enough for one. That would be great

    Besides some other tools, threads and fabric, I've been thinking about the TruCut rotary blade sharpener. Seems to be almost 50/50 as to whether people think it works or not. Still thinking. Just not sure about spending so much for a blade sharpener.

    I don't think I have ever gotten anything quilt related for Christmas, but I have received lots of beautiful smiles and seen lots of joy in faces, from the quilts I have given.

    My dream is to one day purchase a mid-arm quilting machine. I did not ask Santa, at least not this year.

    I ask for finances to go to NC for a few weeks but will not get it. I normally go to New Bern NC at the first of the month and come home when I feel like it. I have 2 daughters, 6 GKs and a GGD there plus many friends. I go in Dec. and take the sewing machine, ffabric and a box of crafts. We just have a great time.

    A mat on the rotary base. My family has no problem, either, with getting me quilting or sewing supplies. I just send links to some of my wants!! My daughter loves to get me books or GC to Barnes and Noble for my Nook.
    Have a great day sewing and remember to "not sweat the small stuff"!!

    I want a new sewing/office chair. The hydraulics in mine don't work and as I'm sewing it keeps sinking lower and lower til my backside is almost on the floor. Quite a sight!! Also wouldn't mind a few LQS gift cards.

    I let the kids and DH buy whatever they think I may want. They would ask what I want and then say you don't want that. LOL. I bought my Christmas to me during the Black Friday online sales. I am stocked up on kits, pre cuts, thread, and new Go dies until the next big sale.
    Got fabric?

    Maybe it is because they don't feel comfortable picking those items out. If you have a shop that you would use to purchase those items maybe suggest a Gift Certificate to it so you can choose your own.

    I had been looking and researching the Janome Horizon 7700 for quite awhile and finally purchased one, just before Thanksgiving. Now, if I only had time to sew - I have been working on hand quilting a hand pieced quilt top that my grandmother gave to my ds and ddil. Would like to finish this by Christmas so I can finish another one of her hand pieced tops for my other ds and ddil - that I started late 2005 or early 2006 - life just keeps getting in the way...... I have played with new machine but no projects yet.

    Dear Santa, Please bring me a fat stash of fabric and a skinny body for Christmas and please don't get them confused. I have been mostly good. Gail

    I am blessed because my adult son called my favorite LQS to purchase a gift card for me for Christmas several years ago. They were so thrilled that he called that they gave him a "dude" discount of 10%. Needless to say, he and my daughter have gone in together for the last several years and given me a big gift card from my LQS. I love it and it is quick and easy for them.
