Butterick Sewing Patterns all now one low price of NZ$8.90, or $8 for a VIP (member). Sale for 12 days only (ends Sunday, 8th June).
Several sewing machines are reduced from between NZ$100 - $150. Machine-buying tips: test-drive it in the shop, and make sure the shop offers an accessible repair/warranty service.
20% off 'Klasse' scissors and needles. Even a beginner seamstress can't get along without a quality pair of sewing shears. A good metal pair isn't cheap, so grab one while it's discounted.
25% off Creation Stations washable trims (braid, ric-rac, etc) that add that classy look to your garment.
Broderie Anglaise, that delicate embroidered cotton, is reduced to NZ$6.99m. Stock up for summer! Available in several pretty colours.
All plain Flannelette is 25% off. Available in a range of pretty colours. Most people make cosy nightwear out of it. I recommend it for winter skirt linings! Cheap, sturdy, and oh, so warm! Even a store-bought skirt can have a lining added, although it does make it easier if the skirt waist has a free-hanging facing. In subsequent posts, Boutique Narelle will demonstrate how to do this, so get your fabric now while it's on special! All you need is double the length of the skirt.
