Creative Grids® Rotary Cutter and New Multi-Pack Blades

The “weight” is over! The Creative Grids® cutters are back in stock just in time for holiday gift giving.

The sleek red metal body adds weight to the cutter so less pressure is required when cutting fabric. The cushioned comfort grip is designed to fit your hand, reducing slips and muscle fatigue.

The easy-to-toggle button allows you to move the blade guard for both right and left handed cutting. Push the button in before moving to the L for left handed cutting, or to the R for right handed cutting. Push the button in again to move it back to the center to fully protect the blade when not in use. The button will click into place in all three locations providing safe cutting and storage every time. The exposed blade is specifically designed to extend beyond the guard to work with the Creative Grids® slotted rulers.

Creative Grids 45mm Rotary Cutter with EVA Case

A new addition to the line are these multi-packs of quality replacement blades. They fit our cutter as well as most brands on the market.

Creative Grids 45mm Replacement Rotary Blade 10pk
Creative Grids 45mm Replacement Rotary Blade 30pk
Creative Grids 45mm Replacement Rotary Blade 50pk

At these prices, they are the perfect stocking stuffer and are due to arrive the beginning of December. Why not offer them individually at the beginning of classes and eliminate that dull blade frustration? Place your orders now.

The Four Seasons Table Runner Spring

What sparkling colors shine in this beautiful flower quilt. This design takes you outside, to Summer, to your garden. You might even get a vacation feeling when you look at this gorgeous quilt. We do get very happy when we look at this quilt and we hope it evokes the same feeling in you. Beautiful Day is made in the 24 colors of the BeColourful Collection of Anthology: BC01Q-X – BC24Q-X.

New Kits from Creative Abundance

I love these new kits by Creative Abundance. Not all quilt shops carry quality linen so the fact that the linen is included in the pattern AND pre-printed is a huge plus. And, framed items are made to fit a standard embroidery hoop so they can be stitched and hung in the same day! Check out these new offerings:

The time for me notebook cover is fully lined and designed to fit an A5 notebook/ journal. This pattern includes full color instructions and the stitchery design pre-printed on white linen.

Time For Me Notebook Cover

Sometimes in this busy world we can forget the ‘little things’ and we need a little reminder. This pattern comes with six designs digitally printed on white linen. The finished embroideries can be made into a 12” Flower Hoop as pictured. Full instructions to complete this are included in the pattern with a copy of the full size designs so that you can trace and re-stitch onto your own fabrics. The pattern also includes a stitching guide for all six designs.

Remember the Little Things

This fun project incorporates a little English Paper Piecing and hand embroidery. The embroidery features a range of pretty flowers that utilizes a simple combination of beginner friendly stitches, making this project achievable for all skill levels. The pattern is presented in a full color A5 booklet and contains all the instructions, including beginner friendly English Paper Piecing tips, a stitch guide for both projects, an explanation of all the embroidery stitches used and full sized template sheets. Pattern includes digitally printed designs on white linen. The pin cushion is so cute!

Sophie's Garden

New from Patch Abilities

Who doesn’t love instant gratification? Make any of these new projects in a day and display them that night. In their own words:
This is THE ULTIMATE BEGINNER PROJECT! We didn’t skimp on the cuteness, but we used long sweeping lines and curves. It’s great for introduction classes, beginner projects, or even the seasoned veteran looking for a big, fun wall hanging. The fringe on the ends of Will E.’s scarf and the hand embroidered snowflake and “”Brrr”” offer wonderful finishing touches. But, wait! There’s more! We have also downsized this onto an included Mug Rug pattern. Use the same fabrics and zip up a quick and cute mug rug with our darling new snowman. Pattern includes the buttons for Will E.’s mouth. Step-by-step instructions with helpful tips, techniques, and easy-to-use tracings will be appreciated by users of all skill levels. This is perfect for those quilters who know a few basics and a little hand embroidery, while using fusible web and machine applique. Pattern includes beginner tips, great hand embroidery figures, enlarged layout guide, and complete binding directions.

Will E Melt with Buttons

Snow, snow, snow! It won’t be long before … well, you know the rest. And what is winter snow without a darling antique sled? This pattern includes detailed instructions on how to embroider the greenery adorning the sled — it’s not as difficult as it seems and it looks amazing on this pattern. Check out the two different versions we made with this single pattern — so, pick your favorite fabrics and they’ll look great. Pairs well with a number of our winter hangers and don’t forget the buttons for the sled.

Vintage Sled

This is a wonderful wintry pattern with nested evergreen trees. Christmas trees? Winter trees? You pick and use the fabrics to tell your story. We couldn’t decide, so we paired it with both the 12″” winter snowflake hanger and the Christmas presents hanger. Step-by-step instructions with helpful tips, techniques, and easy-to-use tracings will be appreciated by users of all skill levels.

Wintergreen Dream

All three patterns are also available with hangers. Check out our website for those options. All are due to arrive the middle of November so you can still have them done by the holidays.
