Stitching Bloggers #9: Stitching Tools and Aides

Welcome back and happy October! Blog Hop #8 has been closed, but you can still visit the page to see all of the participants and read about their favorite projects. It was a lot of fun for me to visit those and have a peek into everyone’s faves 🙂

For this round of the blog hop, I want to talk about stitching tools and aides. Things like magnifiers, thread cutters, counting pins, laying tools, and we can even revisit lap stands and floor frames as part of this category if you want.

The blogging prompt for blog hop #9 is:

What are your must-have stitching tools and aides? Other than your trusty scissors, of course. Is there a problem you have had when stitching that you created your own solution for, or have you purchased a tool that helped?

I suppose in addition to that also would be if you’re having a problem while stitching that you haven’t found a solution for yet, what kind of tool are you looking for? Maybe we can make some suggestions or you’ll find something in this blog hop round that will help making your stitching more enjoyable.

How to Participate

To participate simply write a blog post on your own blog about the above topic and then at the end include this piece of code to display the link widget.

Including this widget on each participant’s response makes it easy for readers to “hop” from blog to blog to read about the topic, leave comments, and meet new bloggers.

After you’ve blogged your response just enter the link to your blog post here:

**note** Enter the direct link to your response, not the link to your blog’s homepage. That way blog hoppers will go straight to your response in this edition of the blog hop.

Use Our Banner (Optional):

Including the banner on your post is optional, but appreciated as it helps identify the post as a blog hop posting and links to the category here on the site so others can click through and participate as well. You can just copy and paste this code to display the banner like I have at the top of this post:

Or if you prefer you can just link to the blog hop post from your response post. Either way, a link is always appreciated 🙂

Stitching Bloggers Blog Hop at STNA will be twice a month, on the 1st and 15th of each month. Be sure you’re on our newsletter list and you’ll get a reminder for each posting.

I look forward to seeing everyone’s responses for this round. Happy stitching 🙂
