We’re happy to have Debbie here as a guest writer today—here’s what she has to tell you about her new book!


Debbie BusbyTrying to imagine my life without sewing is impossible, and even more so without the right tools or notions.

I spend a lot of time in my sewing studio surrounded by the notions I need to stitch up my projects. The notion collections I’ve acquired over the years inspired me to create the notion-themed projects in Sew Many Notions.

Glass jars filled with buttons, bins of old wooden spools, jugs of red tomato pincushions (and shelves of other pincushions), and mugs filled with old scissors are a few of the collections I have, and they remind me of my grandmothers and great aunts.

The projects in Sew Many Notions are created with beautiful wools and cottons. They are fun, quick, and easy to make. There are projects with motifs that are wool appliquéd to wool, as in the A Stitch in Time Saves Nine collection:

A Stitch in Time Saves Nine collection

And there are projects with motifs that are wool appliquéd to cotton, as in the Button Love Wall Hanging.

Button Love Wall Hanging

When I put the book together I imagined the projects being made by sewing groups, in classes, and as personal gifts to give to your friends. I encourage you to change the colors to your own personal favorites and to go with your decor.

One of my favorite projects is the button pincushion set. There are no limits to the colors of buttons you can create and give to all your stitching friends. I am planning on making one for each of my stitching buddies for an upcoming gathering.

Button pincushions

Another of my personal favorites is the tomato pincushion collection! Who can stop at owning just one? Make them from cotton and wool, add them all together in a bowl, and you’ve got an adorable centerpiece for your next sewing bee.

On Pins and Needles Collection

I hope you find joy in creating these notion-themed projects and using them in your sewing space.


Sew Many NotionsDebbie, thanks for sharing your nifty, notion-inspired projects with us!

Who might you make a sewing-themed project for: a friend, a sewing group, yourself? Tell us in the comments and you could win a copy of Sew Many Notions! We’ll choose a random winner one week from today and let you know by email if you win. Good luck!

Comments are closed for this post.

Thanks to all who entered the drawing! The winner is Susan, who says:

“I always take a basket full of snacks and, of course, chocolate, every time that I go in for chemotherapy. The patients, their families and caregivers, and the staff, always appreciate it. I think that I would like to make some easy sewing notions that have sayings like "You are sew special." I could work on them (hand sewing) while receiving my treatments also. I think that the staff would appreciate little needle books as everyone has times they need to do an emergency repair and I could add safety pins, threaded needles, and of course, a special message on top. Being surrounded by so many seriously ill people in the chemo room as well as though who truly care for us and help us through these difficult times, makes me appreciate the many blessings we still have. I would love to win your book and get started with some projects as my last week’s chemo has left me bed bound and hurting. Distraction, especially sewing and crafts, is my favorite way to deal with (or rather ignore) the pain. The projects will also give other’s joy and comfort too. Thank you for the chance to win your book—It’s so cute!!! If I win, I hope to take two baskets of goodies next time! You are sew clever!!!”

We’ll email you about your prize, Susan—congratulations!

This lovely book is a great source of inspiration – thank you for the chance to win it!

Sometimes there isn’t room for all of our machines, or sometimes there isn’t room in my head for successful machine piecing or quilting. Could be therapeutic!

    —Carol on July 13, 2017

  • I always take a basket full of snacks and, of course, chocolate, every time that I go in for chemotherapy. The patients, their families and caregivers, and the staff, always appreciate it. I think that I would like to make some easy sewing notions that have sayings like "You are sew special." I could work on them (hand sewing) while receiving my treatments also. I think that the staff would appreciate little needle books as everyone has times they need to do an emergency repair and I could add safety pins, threaded needles, and of course, a special message on top. Being surrounded by so many seriously ill people in the chemo room as well as though who truly care for us and help us through these difficult times, makes me appreciate the many blessings we still have. I would love to win your book and get started with some projects as my last week’s chemo has left me bed bound and hurting. Distraction, especially sewing and crafts, is my favorite way to deal with (or rather ignore) the pain. The projects will also give other’s joy and comfort too. Thank you for the chance to win your book—It’s so cute!!! If I win, I hope to take two baskets of goodies next time! You are sew clever!!!

  • I would love to make a little sewing themed something for my best sewing buddy Shirley, when we’re together I tell people my name is Laverne and then everyone remembers us. She has made me several wonderful gifts so it’s about time I made her something!

  • Friends and family is who usually gets my things I do. But I see so many things in this book that I would like so I maybe selfish if I won this book. But if someone said "I love it" then it would be there’s. Wool is so much fun "Sew Many Notions" has a lot of what I love.

  • Have been felting (for the first time) some old wool sweaters from Good Will-some shrinking right up, and a few other others, well… let’s just say I’m not sure what’s happened. Would like to make some pin cushions for friends from them, and begin using the GIANT bag of ground walnut shells I bought on-line! Maybe one for me too!
