What is the one item in your sewing room/area you couldn't live without?

I'm a material girl....Want to see my fabric collection?

Only one?  And I'm guessing you don't mean the machine & basics (scissors, pins, ripper)?  It would have to be my Purple Thang.  I use mine ALL the time!  I even had to get a second one because I thought mine was long gone.

My Reliable brand  stem iron, I love that thing, best present I have gotten in a while!!  2nd place. Would be Nikita my long arm machine!  Have to mention her,  superstitious, she might break down if I don't.

Most definitely my longarm!  I like to make large quilts and I like to do the whole thing myself. So if I didn't have the longarm, I probably wouldn't be making very many quilts.

Carol:

What longarm do you have. I am in the market to buy one and I am so confused as to what I want.

I usually don't make my quilts larger than a queen.

since i learned to quilt in the dark ages,  i know what i don't need.   just give me fabric, needle, thread and scissors.    as long as i can sew i don't need anything else.

Now that I have one, I can't live without my Barnett's Lap Top Hoop.  I don't think I could go back to the old oval hand-held now that I am spoiled.

Sewing machine.  I don't like to do hand sewing, so if I didn't have a sewing machine I would not be quilting.

Carmel, I have a Gammill with Statler Stitcher. I love it!  About the size of the quilts, I can easily get a king size on my 12' table. The best way to find a machine you like is to attend a quilt show and try out a few. The vendors are all very helpful. Also, a lot of LQS have longarms that you can use in the store.

I am going with the notion that you aren't talking about basics.   The one thing I couldn't live without at this time in my quilting would be my Ott lights.  Don't see as good as I used too...LOL>

 Design wall.  Although I really love the pre-wound bobbins too, I'd hate to go back to winding all my bobbins again.

Jacy,

I order them from superiorthreads.com. They have several kinds, I use the masterpiece ones. They can wind way more thread on them than you ever could, so you can sew longer without changing your bobbin. I order several neutrals grey, tan, cream and I use them for just about everything.
