What little gifts would you include for a quilter in their advent calendar?

What would you like to get as a gift? Maybe something you've seen, and thought about but didn't pick up?

Or maybe something new you've seen at a quilt show?

The Golden Eagle metal thread clipper. These clipper are super sharp, and very durable. I learned about these clippers from Jordan Fabrics.

depends hmm lets see a new pair of gloves for FMQ. A set of the hand sewing needles my friend swears by for doing binding sorry I am blanking on the name brand. A thimble, another set of clover clips or more of the long pins with the flower heads a bunch of mine just died :) Chocolate is always good

The best seam ripper, in my humble opinion, of course, is the "Seam Fix".

How about a cute tape measure, a spool of thread in a fun color, or a quilting-themed charm?

some cute band-aids, I tend to always prick myself and drops of blood are NO NO on quilts. I think they even make some with sewing items on them. I just use happy face ones or whatever else they have at the dollar store.

lint roller for threads, ladybug needle threader, clean wipes for glasses.

I was just at a village fair and found the perfect gift for the person who has everything! Someone took a super glue lid and stuffed the two ends of a short piece of pipe cleaner in it. It's a belly button lint remover. Had to buy one for my brother!

I just ordered the LAST PAIR. I have some from M* that are 'sponsored' by Tula Pink that I love. But a girl can never have too many clippers.

I sometimes get more of the wonder clips with the JoAnn Fabric's percentage off coupons.....That way it's a great deal.
