Donna shares her secrets on the elusive “travelling sewing kit.”  This applies to the tools that might be used most often at a meeting when the Sew Crazies are sewing. A kit should have:  fabric scissors, thread scissors, assortment of hand sewing needles, basic threads (black, white, tan, red), seam ripper, tape measure, sewing gauge, assortment of needles for your machine, 2-3 bobbins, tweezers, small screwdrivers (flat and phillips) and bandaids.  A few misc. buttons, chalk, a dime and nickle (for buttonhole placement) are also handy.
