Hello Friends, it’s me again! I hope you have been well. I want to thank those of you who have left comments on my last blog post! Please know that I always read all your comments, and do appreciate your friendship!
Today I am happy to share with you about my “almost hold-all” sewing bag!
Backstory: I taught at a guild in GA early spring last year, and one of the ladies there had the most amazing hold-all bag for all her sewing supplies that she uses for all her at-home and away-from home sewing purposes. What a neat idea — if I have my sewing essentials with me in one place at anytime, and no matter where I am, that will definitely cut down on my stress level as I prepare for my teaching trips. I am always worried I don’t bring something important I need for a particular teaching trip.
SO ON TO MY SEARCH!
I came across the Yazzii bags years ago, and really didn’t look into their products until my search for the ultimate hold-all bag progressed in earnest!
#1. It has to be a manageable size for travel!
#2. It should reasonably store ALL my hand and machine sewing essentials like my most used machine feet, thread spools, needles, scissors, markers, embroidery hoop, pins and clips and such.

And here you can see how I have used RED my oval organizer —
Here is where I keep my basic machine tools and feet, including my cleaning brush and machine oil.
Next up are my bibs and bobs.
And I use one of the pockets to store one of my current handwork projects.
And of course, threads. I always bring my own threads when I travel… because I get a chance to share my threads with ladies who haven’t used my favorite Aurifl threads!
So now, I keep this organizer by my sewing table with me as I sew. And I make myself return the notions I use BACK into the organizer. Now I don’t have to worry about what I might not have brought on trips etc! And it saves me time having to hunt for my notions even when I am working at home.
The reason I wanted to share about my oval organizer with you is because I received an email a couple of days ago (valid as of 4/21/2020) with the news that Yazzii is offering free shipping to the US for orders $50 and above. I am not sure if it is exclusive to their email subscribers, but do check out their website HERE.
The ONLY thing I wish I could fit in my organizer is a 8″ x 11″ pattern for my cross stitch piece. It would have been nice to be able to have everything I need for my leisure handwork in one place. I probably should eventually upgrade to their larger bags like the Quilters Project Bag or the Crafters Companion.
Meanwhile, I am most thrilled that my notions are finally organized to my liking!
Happy Shopping, Friends!
