* trim

Posted on July 26th, 2007 by maitreya. Filed under Sewing/Fabric Crafts.

I mentioned a while back that I’d sent in my meticulously saved Wrights trim wrappers for my special! offer! as advertised. It came a long time ago, and a nice commenter reminded me that I never posted it. They really do mean it when they say it’s a “generous package;” it came in one of those big yellow envelopes. Some of it is fairly awful, like iridescent lace, and lace that appears to be made out of tinsel, and a second type of iridescent lace. But I like enough of it (check the cool bandanna print bias trim) that it was totally worth the $4. In fact, it looks like I’ve already saved up 3 more wrappers….


Oh, and the other cool thing that came with it was an order form for the Wrights Factory Outlet. It’s crazy, like 15 assorted packs of bias tape for $3.30, and 12 packs of rickrack for $2.75, all discontinued, irregular, or overstocked. I think it’s worth an order to find out.

    Wow, I had no idea about the “special offer”, thanks for the tip! That’s all from 3 wrappers??

    The factory outlet store is in Sturbridge, Mass. It is a hoot to go to- the prices are amazing- 12 pkgs. of rickrack for $1, 3 sets of knitting needles or crochet hooks or $1, all kinds of quilting notions, embroidery ribbon… so much fun!

    Ooo! A long time ago (gosh, I’m getting old) I ordered supplies from a big discount place (gone now) that sold those packs of bias tape and ric-rac. They were AWESOME.

    The 15 packs of bias tape were all solids in varying sizes. With a large stash of fabric, no car in the country, and 3 small kids at the time, I made them a heck of a lot of clothes with bias tape. I used it allllll up.

    Dang, now I want more.

    Nice to know they still have the “grab bags” available. I still have some from when I was a twelve year old learning to sew, thought what a deal! (it was free waaaaaay back then). Have fun w. them, someone else will probably love what you hate.
