Secret Santa Can Suck It: My Gift

December 16th, 2014 by Cobwebs

The matches for our Secret Santa Can Suck It exchange have been made and sent to their assignees. After everyone posts about their “gift,” I’ll list all of the entries to peruse. To kick things off, here’s mine.

My recipient is Pixel Pixie, and I was delighted when I drew her name out of the hat because I know just what to get her. She likes to sew, so she gets a deluxe sewing room makeover!

She’s going to need some storage space, and some nice big work tables.


Lots of drawers, and flooring that’s easy to keep tidy and pretty to boot.


Her equipment will be upgraded as well, with professional-quality sewing machine, serger, and embroidery machine.

Sewing Machines

When they’re not in use, the equipment can stay out of the way in custom Victorian-style cases like this one:

Sewing Table

All of her supplies get a makeover as well, with some laser-guided(!) precision shears, plus interesting goth touches like “wicked” embroidery scissors:


Speaking of goth, she needs a couple of vintage iron dress forms:

And a closet full of bat-shaped clothes hangers:

Finally, just to help her settle in with her new gear, we’ll arrange for a couture apprenticeship in Paris:


So happy holidays, Pixel Pixie! I hope my “gift” meets with your approval!

    Wow! Love those wicked embroidery scissors!

    And hmmm, I have been in the market for some new clothes hangers! (mumbles “No Wire Hangers”)

    That is one thoughtful, generous, absolutely amazing gift.

  3. Pixel Pixie Says:

    Hooray, I love it! It’s perfect!

    Coincidentally, I just redid my sewing room. (Purged the ex-husband’s crap from the computer room and moved my sewing stuff in there, since it’s bigger.) Yours is way better though!

    That is all MANNER of awesome!

    So many of us need our workspaces made over with no worry about pesky things like finances and space. It’s great you thought of this.
