How to save on a sewing machine with Amazon Prime Day

July 10, 2017   /   byJenny Rushmore  / Categories :  Feeds

If you haven’t heard, Amazon have their own version of Black Friday every year, called “Prime Day“. It’s actually a day and a half, and it gives pretty big discounts to people who have an Amazon Prime membership. If you’re wondering if Prime membership is worth it for you, here’s a great little calculator. You can also get a 30 day free trial of Prime.

I am a HUGE user of Amazon Prime, but the reason I’m mentioning it today, is because there are some great sewing related offers for Prime Day this year!

The offers roll out during the day, so I’ve highlighted the time (Eastern Standard Time) that they’re going live – until then, the discounts aren’t announced, but they’re usually pretty great. As a caveat: I haven’t used all these machines and tools, so definitely do your research and read the reviews before buying, and double check other sites to compare pricing. Also note that they have a limited number of products on sale, so if you want to buy, you need to do it pretty quickly!

Rotary cutting mats

Paragon Cutting Mats. Goes on sale 7.50pm EST July 11 (Currently $29.99)

Here are my top two recommendations:

The Curated Closet. Want to define your style and just be more… stylish? I highly recommend the Curated Closet! You can read my review here.

Fit For Real People. This is my absolute favourite book for fitting, period. The ONLY book that I think all sewists should have on the shelf at all times.

What do you think – will you be scoring any amazing Prime Day deals this year? I’m still pondering an Instant Pot….
