Plan Ahead for Lori Holt

I normally don’t write about a book that isn’t due to arrive until May, 2020 – but when that book is a collaboration between Lori Holt and Its Sew Emma, rules don’t apply!

Quilter's Cottage Book

I don’t know anything about this quilt except the size – 74 x 89 inches and the cover design. But when Its Sew Emma has four out of the top five best selling books, you know it is going to be good. And, since many of you are going to Market to plan your year, this has to be on your list!

Register Notions

The Gypsy Quilter is releasing several new notions next month – all would be a great register display. They are reasonably priced and functional – a great combination!

These Heat-Resistant Thimbles protect fingers when pressing. The nubbed surface also works perfectly when pressing seams open. Each container holds 16 of three different sizes. The large one fits my thumb (which I use to fingerpress seams open).

These Silicone Iron Rests come in three different colors: red; green; and purple. Raising and lowering an iron as often as we do when quilting can cause carpal tunnel.
Do your wrists a favor and rest your hot iron on this silicon rest.

No-Slip Grip Dots can be applied to the wrong side of templates and rulers to stop slipping.

These are the type of notions people don’t know they need until they see them – and then can’t live without!

Looking for something totally new and creative? Offer these tote kits – made of seat belt material! This material can be easily sewn on a domestic machine. The kits include the pattern, belting material and hardware. You just need to provide the interfacing, fabric, and zippers.

There are two different styles to choose from – each available in two different colorways.

These Schoolyard Sparklers are collectibles that can hook onto your favorite child’s backpack. They are made out of a sequined fabric that changes color when the sequins are flipped. How cute is that. And, once again, they are available later this month – just in time for the holidays.
