    Love the thread nippers! And I just bought myself a great big long metal safety ruler and can’t believe I’ve lived without for so long, they’re the best. Also love the baker’s twine, I’m thinking of using it with brown butcher paper this year to wrap xmas presents. Oh, and my husband would die for that ukelele kit! Great ideas!

    That storage cabinet needs to be mine. Also, I’ve wanted those embroidery scissors forever but always felt like it was a silly thing to buy for myself, so I agree they are the perfect gift idea for crafters!

    Love your list. I feel compelled to add that you can get brass calipers from Fire Mountain Gems & Beads for about $ 4.00 USD. Like so many others, I too would love to have the cabinet.
