STEAM-A-SEAM-2-LITE!

Steam-a-Seam-2-Lite-220x300

As you may know, Steam-a-Seam-2-Lite was unavailable for a time because the manufacturer was left without a parchment paper supplier.

The good news is that this great product returned to our inventory and is even better than before!

New Improved Benefits:

A grid aids in tracing.

It's easy to see through and Write on and is now printer friendly.

'DANCING' DESIGNERS GUDRUN ERLA AND BRIGITTE HEITLAND

Gudrun, from Minnesota, and Brigitte, from Werther in the north of Germany, are good dancers, as you can see. (On your mobile device, tap the picture then tap outside it!)

They are also great fabric and pattern designers who have displayed their talents while on visits to Quilty Pleasures! You can find pictures on our Scrap Bag page!

DESIGNER SUSAN CLEVELAND AND HER PIPING HOT BINDING!

Piping Hot Binding Booklet


Like Gudrun Erla, Susan Cleveland is based in Minnesota who brings a lot of fun on her visits. She is also featured on our Scrap Bag page!


Piping Hot Binding includes a detailed booklet of instructions, Groovin' Piping Trimming Tool and 5yds cording.

Groovin' Piping Trimming Tool
To create a perfect seam allowance on piping, simply lay the tool over sewn piping with the cording in the groove then cut along the tool's edge with a rotary cutter. Voila ... a perfect seam allowance. The tool is 11.5" in length so I'm able to  trim 400" of piping in about 20 minutes! Two grooves are available offering 1/4" and 1/2" seam allowances

  • Use with cording up to 1/8" in diameter.
  • Turn the ruler for use left-handed.
  • Use any size rotary cutter: 28mm, 45m or 60mm.

CREATIVE GRIDS RULE!


CREATIVE GRID LOGO
When it comes to hydro, we'd all like to be off the grid, but when it comes to rulers, leave us on the Creative Grid! The markings are clear and easy to read, their exclusive turn-around feature eliminates confusion with full- and half-inch measurements, and the imbedded grippers are tremendous at preventing slippage.  
Click on the fox logo to open their website in a new window, and see the huge variety of rulers, both basic and specialty, that are available for all of your projects.

THREAD CANDY!


Have you tried our Wonder-Fil threads yet? Konfetti (50-wt solids) and Tutti (50-wt variegateds) are fantastic for both piecing and quilting – made of high quality long-staple cottons in a yummy range of colours, they're smooth, strong, and practically lint-free. Spagetti, their 12-wt cotton quilting thread, comes in the yummiest solids imaginable and is perfect for dramatic quilting and thread painting. You'll love them all, guaranteed. 

And be sure to try Invisifil, too, for proof that it's time to rethink the old rules about polyester and quilts. Available in amazing colours, this 100-wt thread carries more than its weight: used in the bobbin, it lasts almost forever; used for quilting and appliqué, it just melts into your fabric for texture without threadiness. Try it and become a convert.
