Blue hardware

hooksThese made me absurdly happy today, so I thought I’d share them with you.

I’m planning on making three or four special bags for carrying my quilts when I travel to teach workshops or speak at quilt guilds. As I was searching the internet for a source for the hooks and D-rings I need for the bags, I ran across The price seemed reasonable, but the kicker for me was that for 25 to 50 cents extra, they will paint the hardware your choice of twenty-two different colors! When I compared the cost to some of the other online retailers, the cost was still less, even after my frivolous splurge 🙂

So, if you’re planning on making a bag, it might be worth it if you took a look. They sell various webbing, straps, cording, velcro, and other supplies you might need, too.
