We have a winner!

A great shoutout to Karen of GA who inspired me to organized my sewing tools!  Meeting you and seeing your sewing organizer was one of the memorable moments in my travel-teaching adventures.  I hope you keep inspiring others to organize their sewing tools!


Hello Friends, I hope you are still keeping well.  I want to thank all of you for entering the giveaway for the pink Yazzii Quilters Project Bag, and sharing the different things you consider important in a sewing organizer bag!

Giveaway is now closed for the bag shown below (CA880 Quilters Project Bag), but you can read about how I am using it HERE.


Many of you expressed —

#1.  Good quality zippers is a must!

#2.  Multiple sized organizers to organize the various notions.

#3.  Durability is a must!

#4.  See through pockets so you don’t have to hunt for notions already organized in your organizer.

#5.  Appearance of bag is important.

I think the Quilters Project Bag definitely meet the requirements!  AND I AM HAPPY TO ANNOUCE THE WINNER of the giveway is: JoyceO — CONGRATULATIONS!  I will be sending you an email.

Yazzii is offering free shipping for any orders over $50 in the US.  You may purchase the Quilters Project Bag (CA880) by clicking HERE.

NOW — I would like to offer a quick note of caution.  Since the pocket systems of Yazzii organizers provide easily see through plastic windows, I personally would not place sharp-tip scissors straight into the pockets for fear the tips would poke through the plastic.  

2 solutions:  Store your scissors in the pocket with a scissors sheath, or store scissors in a separate pouch before placing the pouch in the organizer pocket.

Yazzii has some fun pouches that would fit the window pockets… like the CA405.  Click HERE for more information.

And I would advise buying contrasting color pouches to go into your organizer, like I have done here.  That way, you can easily spot your pouches!  I organizer my pouches according to the notions I need for various techniques.  The one below is my hand applique pouch.  Just in case I can only take my hand applique supplies with me, I would grab that pouch and use the notions in it.  After I am finished, pouch goes right back to the organizer.


For those of you who travel to classes, or retreats, I think the Yazzii Carry All (CA120) might be for you!  It allows you to fit a cutting mat!  I think that’s absolutely cool!  I have never seen this item in person, but from the website, it looks like the ultimate of the ultimates!

I am also thinking with the shoulder straps, it could even double as a travel bag if you travel to classes or retreats.  As long as you don’t have prohibited items, I am thinking this would be a nice bag to take when traveling by plane and have long layovers.  How nice it is to be able to sit at the airport and just break out a sewing project to work on, AND have everything for the project right there!

The other bag that I found intriguing is the Maxie Yazzii (CA375).  I think this is a great bag for taking to classes or retreats because this bag actually holds fabrics (2-3y according to the website information!) + notions and tools.  Click HERE for more information.

Now I personally LOVE large purses because I pack almost my entire house in my purse — because one never knows what one might need at any given time! Hahaha.  So I am naturally gravitated toward large totes or purses.

Some of you expressed a liking for a more compact sized bag.  I highly recommend the Oval Organizer (CA140).  I have written about it HERE.


Well, window shopping for you was really fun!  I hope you will take a look at Yazzii’s website, and hopefully you will find the organizer after your own heart!  Take a look at their smaller organizers — I think they would be perfect for organizer EPP pieces if you are into it.  EPP is on my to-do list (I already have designs in mind), but right now my life schedule doesn’t allow taking on EPP.  One day…

Thank you for stopping by!  I hope you have a lovely day.

I hope to be back later this week to share with you tips on my Elliptical Quilt.  Log cabins that have gone hip is how I describe these blocks.  You may purchase the pattern HERE.

But I have to run for now — the dreaded deadlines await.  Take care, Friends!!!
