    Lots of good ideas here!
    I don't know if you get their flyers, but, hancock fabric store has the notions wall all on sale for 50 percent off this month. I am not sure the dates but, they are on line to read the flyer. Many of the stores have great sales during this time of year and often there are coupons for better savings.

    No one mentioned a pattern. There are some cute ones that you could get for that amount. But, I am not sure they would qualify as a notion.

    I suppose until you go tot he store, you won't find the perfect thing. Sorry...

    I think I would make a cute felt flower pin to pin to your shirt and use it for a needle holder. The fashion pin backs are easy to get ahold of in the crafts section of walmart.

    Another notion that would be cute would be a quilt book book mark. It would be in the budget and it is handy.

    I like to have a little Omni Grid 6 inch ruler (1 inch wide). I think they're around 4 dollars at JoAnn's.

    What great ideas.. our guild always has an exchange too.. I have gotten a pencil box and put a few little things in there, like a seam ripper, thimble, package of needles, and perhaps a small spool of thread, then tied a ribbon with a double knot, closed it in the edge of the box and left some space, tied a bow..... we hang ours on a small tree.. looks cute hanging there...

    I like to applique and have used the white marking pen by Clover. Recently, I purchased a new one in blue made by Pilot. It looks as though I have marked with a ball point pen, but alas, when touched with an iron it goes away as the Clover one does. BUT, using the top of the pen, the marks will disappear with friction or rubbing like an eraser (the iron is easier). This one, obviously, is used to mark on lighter fabrics. The Pilot also comes in black and other colors.

    Hey, I'm a Sharon B as well! Go to Harbor Freight or Big lots and get the magnetic bowl mechanics use to hold nuts and bolts-you can paint it or decoupage scrapbook paper or fabric to decorate.

    I like home made pin cushions. One year I made rustic looking heart shaped ones for my quilting buddies. They were different sizes, hand drawn shapes, made from scraps, crazy patch style. For a folk art look, I made sure each one had a bit of open weave fabric on the top (think burlap) and a bow. That and a package of pins or needles, and you will receive lots of "Wow's."

    My favorite is my thread snippers. The squeeze ones, they are so quick. I have 3 of them, one by iron, one by sewing machine, and one in my sewing kit to go. The magnetic wand I don't have yet, but lately I have been losing more needles and pins all the time. That would be really handy!

    I like my bamboo double pointed knitting needles that I use as stillettos and my thread nippers (I think they cost more then $5.00).

    Agree, the seam ripper. Add to that a lint brush; tweezers; pin cushions. Most anything related to sewing under $5.00 works for me. I love all things sewing!

    How about those adhesive lint pickers on a handle, they make all sizes, surely one must be under $5 and most of the rest of what I would suggest has been suggested already!

    I recently purchased an ergonomically styled seam ripper--I love it. It has a larger cushioned handle which fits my hand with rheumatoid arthritis. Love it! Also flat headed pins are great.
