Random post: fabric store deal!!!

This is actually an accurate depiction of how much fabric I'd like to buy with this deal.
Whenever I hear about a special deal on anything sewing related, I get super excited. I am one of those people who checks Craigslist at least once a day for steals and deals on anything for sewing. So, without further ado, let me share with you the latest awesome-for-sewing-enthusiasts deal I've found lately.

The deal: for anyone in the Washington, DC area, there is a great livingsocial deal going on for a few more days. You purchase the deal for $25, which gets you a certificate for $50 to spend at G Street Fabrics, a local fabric store chain.

I bought this one (about a year ago??) last time it was available and was able to stock up on a bunch of great stuff and definitely took advantage of their well-stocked zipper selection! This time, I'm looking to pick up a hem gauge like this, maybe an invisible zipper foot, some more zips, and OF COURSE fabric. Yay!

Alsooooooo, I know this sounds tacky, but it just so happens that if three of you use my link to purchase this deal, I'll wind up getting the one I purchased for free! (Then, you can get three of your fabric-loving friends to purchase it, too, and yours is free!) So there's that.


  1. If only DC were a little closer to Philly!

    By the way, I nominated you for a Versatile Blogger Award. If you're interested--and you're so not obligated to play along--feel free to check out the details on my blog http://retrorabbithole.blogspot.com

  2. I wish Living Social or thos Groupon/Scoopon deals in Australia offered something sewing related!!!! That's an awesome deal!!! I think I need a new invisible zipper foot, mine is malfunctioning i think! The last invisible zip i sewed ended up with thread in the teeth. Last night I tried again with a different zip and I was bright and alert, slow and careful, and again it stuff up. I gave up and used a regular zipper foot.

    Oohhh Thanks for the Versatile Blog Award nom, I don't know much about it, but I'm excited!! Thank you :):)::)

  3. I've taken advantage of the G street living social deals several times now and love it- it basically makes every 50% off, and if you tend to stick to the $2.97 / yd tables, like me- an extremely economical way to hoard fabric!

    Glad to find another DC sewist!
