    Question What quilting tool is on your christmas wish list?

    My DH has a hard time finding "something special" for me for Christmas. I really don't "need" anything, and he feels a present should be something you want. Please post your quilting wants on this thread to help give ideas to other signficant others who have a hard time with gifts for their quilting enthusiast. On my want list is a wood wall mounted ruler that I saw on one of QB posts.
    Here is the website

    What is on your list?

    I want to take a few classes.

    Tool wise, I want a "rainbow" set of fancy thread. I need more color range.

    I want a cutting mat that has odd angles, diamonds, triangles, circle guides.

    Not sure what else.

    Oh and I need bobbins.

    My new machine uses a specific size. I'm going to need a lot of them.

    I told my DH about the magnetic screw and bolt, etc. pans that someone talked about on QB. He came home one day with 2 about 6" circular ones and 2 retangular (from the auto parts store) that are big enough to hold my scissors, ripper, etc., etc. They are both an answer for this rather unorganized quilter (when I'm quilting I concentrate on just that... until I need to find where I put the ripper, or little metal ruler, or...... The circular ones are soooo great for tossing pins into when pulling them out as I sew. Just toss them in that direction. I have 3 of the magnetic "pincushions you can get at the quilt store but they've all been dropped and are taped trying to hold the pieces together. The metal shop ones have stronger magnets AND they are heavier and I use them as weights when I need my quilt to be flat. Just like the LQS magnets you have to keep them away from the computer end of your sewing machine (which is no problem since I hit it close enough with a pin even if its 12" away)!

    I'm going to watch this thread, you bet!

    My Christmas gift is already underway. DH asked me if I'd like to enclose our small back porch for a sewing room, so after I thought about it a bit, I said yes, I'd love that! (I actually thought about it for oh, maybe 1.5 seconds! LOL) The contracter has already given us a quote (chi-ching), we have told him to move forward. He has to order the wall of windows - floor to ceiling - before he can get started, but it should be within a couple of weeks. It will be very small, but it will be MINE! So needless to say, I am not asking for anything else for Christmas. This will be the best Christmas gift ever ... with the exception of my sweet Gracie (my avatar!) My DH is a keeper for sure!

    I want a Sue Pelland Leaves Galore ruler. Either the small or medium sized ones. I have always wanted to do scalloped edges on quilts and this will allow you to cut those and so much more. Just a little pricey to go out and purchase for myself and no one around here carries them. Shipping would probably be as much as the ruler. All the kids live in large metro areas so that is at the top of my list. Ann in TN

    Just saw this mini suction cut gripper that can help stabilize specialty rulers on another thread today. I've lost the thread finding you again, but it cost $3 at a hardware store and says it will "pull" up to 16 pounds! And has quick release. Sounds like a great ruler "handle".

    How about a couple of classes at your local quilt store instead of a gadget made somewhere else? How about a
    gift certificate to your local quilt store? How about a cleaning lady coming in to clean your house, which includes
    your sewing room? How about hiring a professional organizer for a day to come in and help straighten out your
    sewing room? How about a gift certificate to your local movie theater? A gift certificate to your local hair salon?
    Nail salon? It keeps the money local and helps support local businesses and families.

    I got my my birthday and christmas present for the next two years! LOL, back in early summer I got the Grace Pinnacle frame and JUKI mid-arm.

    Think I better not ask for too much more.

    It wasn't before, but now this is on my list! I didn't even know it existed! What a great idea and the price is so good, that my DS is getting one for Christmas.

    I too am now asking for the wall mounted ruler shelf. I like the fact that it's hand made not MADE IN CHINA and it seems to be reasonably priced. Before seeing it posted here, I thought I wanted nothing.

    I already got my birthday, Christmas, anniversary for a couple years....LOL....he bought me a Janome 6600! Now if he gets to feeling extremely generous and wants to surprise me, then he can get me some shelving for the sewing room....the kind with nice deep shelves and glass doors.

    I want the rotary blade sharpener. Told DH, bet he's already forgotten. I'm sure he doesn't know he'll (I'll) have to order it.
    We would worry less about what others think of us if we realized how seldom they do.

    When you post an idea, maybe try to post a web site where the item is. My DD read some of the posts (not a quilter) and she would like to see what the items are (as potential gifts for her DM). I do order gifts from my DH for me, but when they get delivered I do not open them. My DD loves to give surprise gifts as does the rest of the family. Posting a web site Would probably help others find a surprise gift. Love the ideas, especially the cleaning lady, and the organization specialist. My DH would love me to have a 22 caliper semi automatic target pistol and if I didn't want to use it, he would!!!! (HA HA)
