Which Sewing or Embroidery Supply do You Have Too Much of?

Bonnie has always encouraged well-stocked Resource Centers. Is there such a thing as too much?

Who would have thought that our Resource Centers would prove so important? In these scary days of isolation and distancing, they have never been more useful. You can keep busy and not have to leave the house.

A couple of months ago, Bonnie asked her loyal Facebook followers if there was one supply that they had too much of. Here is what they said.

Scissors: 6%

Every tool has a specific use, right? One lady said she had in excess of 50 pairs of scissors. You can see some of Bonnie’s favorite scissors here.

Ideas/Projects: 11%

Do ideas for projects always seem to exceed what your hands can produce? You are not alone. It is the same for many of us. So many ideas, so little time. Bonnie did a video about organizing your patterns/projects here.

Thread: 11%

Thread tied with Ideas/Projects and it is no wonder. Thread is so pretty that it is really hard not to buy it, especially when it is on sale. Besides, you can’t embroider without thread. See how Bonnie organizes her thread collection here

Oh, the designs! Who can have too many? One lady said that if she were to stitch one design a day, she wouldn’t get to all of them in ten years! 

Fabric: 24%

You might think that most people would have said that they have way too much fabric in their Resource Centers. (My husband would.) Actually, it was a close second. When you see fabric that you like, buy it. I found out the hard way that if you don’t get it when you see it, you sometimes can’t get it at all. See how Bonnie organizes her fabric here.

No Such Thing, Silly: 26%

Some people said they had too many interruptions or too many thread scraps on the floor, but the majority of responses went something like this, “You're kidding, right? I'm positive there is no such thing as having too much of any sewing/embroidery supply. I need it all.”

If you have a well-stocked Resource Room, you have been preparing for this for years. Keep embroidering and sewing and be safe!
