My Aldi Bargain

I have recently started to do more stitching on my cards, and one of my struggles is at time is finding the right colour thread to match the paper or cards. I note that a lot of people use white on all the layers, however that does not always seem right to me. Although my mum has a huge box full of threads, it is hard at times to find certain colours i am looking for without spending more money at the local thread shop. So the other day I went to Aldi, and i found this at an amazing price of £3.50, and the little round things (no idea what they are called) as well already for you to use!

And look - it comes it its own little storage compartment. How cool is that. I know there is not a lot of thread on each one, but enough to do your cards and some of these colours you will only be able to use once! So I am happy and it is only £3.50. Did I say it was only £3.50?

The little round things are Bobbins- for use in a sewing machine to supply the bottom thread.I love finding a good bargain in places like this- do you have a Poundland, or similar, near you? Its amazing the bargains you can find there,I got heatproof baking sheets, like the Tim Holtz type, for £1, and some mens shaving brushes, like colour duster brushes, 8 in a pack! Shaz xx

I do have poundlands and shops like that nearby. I do look but you dont always find them nearby. I now know what they are called - bobbins, and do use them for sewing. Just forgot what they were called.

Hi Sarpreet - love your bargain hunting! I received a little sewing machine a couple of years ago as a Christmas present but lost patience with it lol so you have tempted me to dig it out of the craft room and have another go - maybe not tonight though lol :o)

Hello Sarpreet, what a great bargain. I have a lovely new sewing machine and those ready threaded bobbins would be just ideal. I wish you luck with your new business ventures and hope that it all pays off for you. Hope your weekend has been a good one so far. Elizabeth x #108
