NEW on the Market!!! Be the first to see it here!!!

Virginia Lauer of Illinois has just come out with her "Easy Reach Thread Carousel" and I'm lucky enough to be able to carry these in my store!!! I thought they were so neat and I'm all for supporting other women who have an invention or creation and they want to take it to market. There are two Carousel's. One is for regular size spools of thread and the other is for king cones. The notions caddy can fit on the side to hold your tools. Isn't this soooo cool? I think they are so cool that I'm going to offer everyone who leaves a comment on this entry the opportunity to win their choice of 4 Bag Tags or 4 Magnets!!! Just leave your comments on what you think of Virginia's Thread Carousel's and I will draw a winner on the 15th of April. Now that is two give aways going on at one time on this good ole blog. Wooo Hooo!!!

All you have to do to have a chance to leave a comment. Only one comment per person please. If you are interested in purchasing one or 10 of Virginia's Thread Carousel's please click on the link to my store on this blog....upper right....


  1. I love the idea! Now if it only had a dust cover

  2. I also have a dust cover pattern that can be purchased for the Easy Reach Thread Carousel :)

  3. Nifty tool for anyone who sews!

  4. While admiring your blog I saw this carroussel. I love it! What a great idea.

  5. I've never seen anything like that and i like the idea of having all my threads easy to reach.

  6. I saw this "lazy susan for threads" at a quilt show and it was wonderful! Imagine being able to just turn it and VOILA! there is the right color you need. Beats the heck out of digging in a drawer like I have to right now..

    I also love your blog! Think I'm going to make myself one of the chest pin cushions. Thanks for sharing!

  7. I love the thread "lazy susan"... I saw one ( maybe even the same one! ) at the quilt show not too long ago... it would be so easy to just spin and get the right color you need. Beats the heck out of digging in a drawer like I do now!
    I am going to make one of the chest pin cushions, too! Why didn't I think of that??
    Thanks for sharing

  8. I love the thread carousels! No matter how I organize my threads, they are never handy when I need them. I really like the two sizes also because I have both large and small cones and it takes a lot of space to store them in more conventional ways.

    I just happened upon your site and have now bookmarked it. I have enjoyed reading about your favorite gadgets and I'm glad to see that there are others that love their Hot Piping Binding and small vacuum tool!

    Thanks for sharing!

  9. What a pretty carousel! Wouldn't it be nice to have a clear vinyl cover with the seams made of a colorful fabric?

    I saw your post on Quiltville Chat and I'm going to check out your store and bookmark your site. Thanks for sharing!
