14 Places to Score Cheap Sewing Supplies

Like anything else, your hobby is dependent on a budget. Not many people out there can spend as they please on their hobbies.  And therefore saving on your sewing stash is not a bad idea.  Don’t we all want to get more for our money?
Most needlecraft aficionados prefer their sewing rooms fully stocked.  However, this usually means having more than they would ever need.  After all, who wants to run out of thread or fabric in the middle of an exciting project?  Hobbies are supposed to relieve stress not cause frustration.  And I don’t know about you, but I jump at the chance of getting more for less! A dream stash of just about everything you need is certainly not as farfetched as you would have thought.

Another good thing about finding affordable supplies on sale is to be able to test out the quality of a new brand. Finding an item for less brings excitement.  Or if you have been wondering about a product, but leery about forking out the full amount puts you at an advantage.

Just be careful of buying things that may be old, especially thread. It’s very important to always buy the best quality thread, as older means weaker. That would just defeat the purpose of sewing in a big way!

Dollar Store Holiday Deals

Need party or craft supplies for Thanksgiving or Christmas?  Dollar store holiday deals await you. I’ve always been able to find cups, plates, napkins, and table cloths to compliment my theme whenever I host a party or family gathering. Buying items from the Party Supply Store can get expensive, so I get creative and add complimentary items from the Dollar Store, Dollar Tree, Dollar General.  If it says Dollar, I’m there. Why should I spend $5.00 on a plastic table cloth when I can get it for a $1.00. This momma works hard for the money and I don’t just throw mine out the door.  
 
The Dollar stores always have a nice selection of holiday table items, cookie tins for gift giving, and trays to hold your delicious treats.  I get major compliments on my table displays when I’m hosting a party.  I accept them with a giggle, the Dollar stores never fail me.   

I have found good deals on:

  • wine glasses
  • seasonal decorations
  • picture frames
  • craft supplies
  • gift wrap
  • party supplies
  • holiday items

I love filling wine glasses with chocolates and other candies as a little token of my appreciation for my guests time during the holidays. If you’re into making your own holiday wreaths or center pieces check out their supply of berries and other greenery.  I stock up on items for stocking stuffers too.  I found flash cards, games, candy canes, Golden Books, coloring books you name it.   

Big Lots and the Christmas Tree Shop are other stores that I love.  I’ve found great gifts for baby shower prizes there as well as wall art and throw pillows.  If you’re a bargain shopper, head to your local Dollar Stores and get your hunt on.  I’m sure you’ll find a bargain or two as well.  

Black Friday Shopping Tips

Black Friday is the biggest shopping day of the year. It’s the day to grab steals and deals, but your planning must start before you hit the stores.   Check out the ads days before and especially Thanksgiving Day. Make a list of the items that you are seeking.  If you get chance, check out the more expensive items prior to Black Friday. You may find that the quality of item is not worth the time that you will spend obtaining them.

Many stores start Black Friday around 8:00 pm Thanksgiving Day. Here are a few Black Friday shopping tips to help make your shopping experience easier:

  • Be patient and wear comfortable shoes.
  • Carry a list of the items that you’re shopping for.
  • Set a budget.
  • Map out a route so you don’t have to back track to stores.
  • Carry the ads with you, you may encounter a discrepancy with the sales clerk.
  • Be an Early Bird shopper, between 5:00 am and 11:00 am, for the best deals.
  • If possible, leave the children at home. You can accomplish more if you don’t have to stop to feed the little ones or leave because they’ve had a major meltdown.
  • Shop on-line in the comfort of your home. On-line retailers offer Black Friday deals too.
  • Get a gift receipt for any holiday purchases for exchanges or refunds.

Remember the true meaning of the holidays, and don’t overextend your purchasing power. Just because an item is on sale doesn’t men that it’s a bargain.
