I won one of these at the casino today and tried to trade it to Caerlyna for a token, but she said "I'm sorry, I don't have a token for this bag at the time. Try back later, and have a wonderful day!"

Just turned a Deluxe Sewing Kit in today and you do get a token in return.

I can't remember the date of the patch without doing some research, but they now *can* be turned in for a token. I know because I now have eight Deluxe Sewing Kit Tokens in my bank.

I confirm that you can win those in the casino. I have won one on February 10. Casino may be a very costly way to get them.
How much...

They should bring these things back. They had a legitimate use. Tailoring items requiring more than 8 ingredients when you are far away from a loom. I don't see how these could possibly kill the tailored bag market, since there is no weight reduction. I would have preferred to see VI give tailored bags a bigger weight reduction and lower the amount that the bags themselves actually weigh, rather than take an amazingly useful item such as this out of game permanently.

When they made rockhopper hides usable in place of HQ bear skins and made them a lot easier to get than HQ bear skins, nobody complained. This encouraged people to take up tailoring to make their own bags for fun and profit and flooded the game with bags and people with the ability to make them. Has that hurt prices?? Not much by what I have seen. What makes you think the Deluxe Sewing Kit would have hurt the bag market?

And why hasn't anyone ******* about the Deluxe Toolbox in the same way that they ******* about this? It also holds 10 GIANT sized items and weighs .5 LESS than the Deluxe Sewing Kit!! You people should be in a bigger uproar over those than the sewing kits.

Please think about all the other trade skills out there like brewing, smithing, and pottery, which can't be done on the run like all the others before you ask them to come out with some thing that lets you do all you combines in the field.

That's interesting... I never did know why they took them from the game. It makes sense to me, but then again, the Deluxe Toolbox point was a good one. I remember when the DT came around (or at least when I first saw it), I thought... well this is a nice compromise between the backpack and the handmade one. However, it DOES kinda suck that the gnomes get these, yet we don't get to keep our 10-slotter. In the end, though, I don't think it is such a big deal. There aren't many combines that require more than 8 components, and well... I think there should be SOME added feature of a loom. Also, tinkering is simply a different type of skill than tailoring. At least we don't have to look for a forge or pottery wheel anytime we want to make something. I think it would make sense for certain tinkering to be done in special "toolsheds" or something, but that sounds a bit contrived I guess.

Anyhow, just my modest 2cents. :)

Can't Open Sewing kit
# Mar 08 2002 at 10:41 AM Rating: Decent
I decided to start my tailoring skill even though I picked up a Deluxe sewing kit many ages ago and never used it. My problem is that I can't open my sewing kit to put the items. I bought a tailoring book and I can't open to read it. I am sitting and I have my kit or book in the general store inventory. I right click and nothing. I heard that maybe it was because I was in full screen mode and is a bug. Is this true?

If you want to read books, you have to leave full screen to get the classic view (by F9 or F10) then put the book in your inventory (not in a bag) and right click on it, it will open...
10 slot storage
# Mar 04 2002 at 7:26 PM Rating: Default
It's been posted here before but if you are just looking for a cheap 10 slot storage item (ie for the bank) that holds giant size items go to iceclad and get a deluxe tool box from the gnome pirates. I got my sewing kit a while back and thought "Gee, I should get some more of these and put them in the bank." Of course I was too late. VI had taken them out. Fortunately all of my chars that tailor have one. Now I also have all my bank slots full of toolboxes. Really nice for us packrat types.

Even easier would to be to go to one of the vendors in Shadowhaven. Forgot his name, but he sells the Trader's Sachels. They're 10 slot and cost only 1pp. Problem is that they weigh 25 stones. He's right next to the bank though, so getting them in your account is a snap.

If anyone has one of these for sale on Tunare, I will gladly buy one, please send me a tell in-game. Thanks!

I finally worked up to the level in tailoring where I actually need one of these babies (to make Wu's pants, cloaks, and Gis). After complaining that they were no longer sold, a GM told me today that they were, in fact, still sold SOMEWHERE.

So where are these sold? In the meantime, can anyone tell me which cities have a loom?
# Mar 04 2002 at 1:22 PM Rating: Decent
Try looking at for a list of where you can find a loom. As to where these are sold I have no idea but that info might be at the website also.
I have some for sale

I saw that they changed them to 10 slots and jumped all over them. I now have about 6 in my bank as well as 1 in my guild bank in case anyone in my guild would need to use it. I am on Brell serilis and if anyone would like one of my deluxe sewing kits they could give me a bizuzz. I currently carry around all 10 slots and 1 sewing kit. I am working on tailoring and I like having one incase I need to loot a giant Item. Thanks Verant for letting me have a bunch of 10 slots in my bank for about 1pp each hehe

Note that these aren't the only cheap 10 slot containers you can buy anymore. If you go to the gnome pirate outpost in Iceclad Ocean, you can buy deluxe toolboxes for about 1 1/2pp each. They are 10 slot containers, weigh 3.5, no weight reduction, and can hold giant or smaller items. Obviously this is a crappy container for lugging things around in, unless you really had no other container with a giant capacity, but they're excellent to keep in the bank for storing items. These items can also be used with gnomes' tinkering skill.

No point in paying the rediculous prices deluxe sewing kits go for anymore. They now only exist in the hands of players who owned a large sewing kit before the patch changed them to deluxe sewing kits. Merchants don't sell them anymore, and any that were sold to merchants were instantly destroyed. If you want to make a tailored item with more than 8 ingredients, you have to find a community loom if you don't happen to have a deluxe sewing kit.
a bit of history

Way back at the dawn of time, two kinds of tailoring kits were available from vendors: large (8 slots) and small (2 slots). Then, when cultural tailoring (for halflings, erudites, and wood elves) was added, new kits (10 slots) were introduced that could only be used by those two races to make their cultural armors. When Velious came out, another kit was made available from stores in Velious cities, the coldain tanning kit (8 slots) that must be used to make the Velious tailored armors.

Then, because they were about to introduce old world armor that had more than 8 ingredients, the old world original large kits were increased to have 10 slots. But then, people started complaining more loudly because this change meant that the large tailoring kits had as many slots as tailored backpacks but weighed less and held bigger items. So, the Powers That Be decided to remove the 10 slot tailoring kits from vendors. The problem was that they couldn't simply change them back to 8 slots, because that would cause problems for people who had items in all 10 slots. So, they changed the existing 10-slot large kits into a new item, Deluxe kits, and changed vendors back to the original large kits with only 8 slots.

Therefore, the only deluxe tailoring kits in existance are ones that players had in their possession when these changes were made. If you find them on a vendor, it is because someone sold it to that vendor. For those who need 10 slots for the recipes with more than 8 ingredients (Wu's Fighting armor), they also added Looms to some cities. Looms are stationary containers that you go to in a city and use on the spot, like ovens or brew barrels or forges.

I got a Deluxe sewing kit
# Jul 11 2001 at 6:16 AM Rating: Decent
Never paid much attention to trade skills, but I was in WC and bought me a Deluxe sewing kit from the merchants by the inn. It's a bit too heavy to use as a backpack, but i use it in my bank account. I suppose if I start tailoring (very unlikely) I will be glas to have one, but fro now, it just holds all of my large weapons and armor in storage :p
sell of
# Jun 29 2001 at 7:38 AM Rating: Decent
i heard that the deluxe items are sold in the velious area only and is not only sewing kits
little info
# Jun 16 2001 at 2:50 AM Rating: Default
fyi, there are now sewing 'thingies' in most cities which have 10 slots, so you don't NEED a deluxe to make the new Wu's armors. They were also added with the patch which made these no longer sold.
No more
# Jun 15 2001 at 6:02 AM Rating: Default
Last night I checked all the vendors that used to sell the 10 slot large. THe only thing for sell now is the 8 slot. Even the vendor in Erudin only has the 8slot. If you see any on a vendor my guess is it was sold to them by a player. This also is per V's info that the 10slot kit will no longer by sold.

I would be surprised if that were still the case after the 5/30/01 patch. According to Verant the Large Sewing Kits now being sold on merchants are back to being the regular 8-slot Large Sewing Kits we had before they increased them to being 10-slot containers.

See my post under the subject "Verant's offical word on these" below for the details.

more items?
# Jun 13 2001 at 6:37 PM Rating: Default
you think they made bigger containers cuz they mad more complex items so they needed more room?
just a thought.
RE: more items?
# Jun 14 2001 at 4:33 PM Rating: Default
Yes, that is it exactly. Some pieces of Wu's Armor (monk only upgrade from Cured Silk) require 9 slots to make.
