Thrifty Finds and some fabric news at Sew Sisters

I hadn't been to a thrift shop in ages but I managed a quick visit the other day.  I found some vintage rick rack along with some other treasures.  Don't you love the pose on the pattern?  So stylin'!  I think I will practice that pose.  I am intrigued by the needle threader, complete in the box with instructions.  I have yet to try it.  Something tells me the fact that it is all complete in the box means it did not get a lot of use which could mean that the "witch" is not that great.

And the fabric news.  Sew Sisters has lots of stuff in their clearance section for as little as $8.99 a metre and some lovely new Art Gallery fabrics by Bari J and Katrina Roccella.  Go have a look.  To die for.  Yep.


  1. Love that green / red colour combo! Yummy

  2. What's funny is the major pattern companies are re-releasing their 'vintage' patterns. Of course, not at vintage prices! 40 cents, I actually remember those days. I wait until Joanns has their monthly pattern sales.

  3. I was in Florida a few weeks ago and my niece who is 9 is inspired to sew. She pull out this old sewing box someone gave her and she has one of those needle threaders and uses it. I had never seen one before and now 2 in a couple weeks. Love your other finds too!
