Celebrate the Holidays with Creative Grids

Need demos for that holiday open house? We’ve got you covered. There are excellent Cut Loose Press™ patterns that feature Creative Grids® rulers that will have your customers making multiples for gifts as well.

Capiz Lanterns looks like a modern version of our favorite tree ornament.  It is oh so simple to make with the Oval Always tool by Karla Alexander.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Deb Heatherly creates these ornaments with the 4″ version of the Log Cabin Curvy tool.

 

 

 

 

 

 

And just look at the variety of trees….

Jean Ann created this tree by combining the 8″ log cabin trim tool with the curvy version of the same size.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

These trees were all made with a 30-degree angle.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Karla Alexander’s Crazy Christmas Trees has been in the top 10 patterns since its release!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This snowman table runner is a great choice for the entire winter!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Best news? Everything is in stock and ready for your holiday events!

Crazy Trees


I love this!  In fact, I love this so much that I am teaching it this weekend!

 

 

 

 

This is a Karla Alexander design – and is SO her! A little wacky, a little wonky, and a whole lot of fun! This combines every aspect of a great pattern:

 

 

  • It looks hard but is so easy and so forgiving – anyone can do it!
  • It takes just eight 10 inch squares and eight 11″ x 14″ rectangles of background so it is easy to kit.
  • It makes a great demo.
  • AND, it is a Cut Loose Press™ pattern so it is affordable. Crazy Christmas Trees #CLPKAL009

It uses her ruler. Creative Grids® Spider Web Quilt Ruler #CGRKA6

 

 

 

 

Saturday I am making this in Fall colors – but kitting it for Christmas as well. After all, who can stop at just one! An added bonus? This runner is 17 1/2″ x 40 1/2″ so if I make four of these, I have a great throw!

Great size, Great gift

These newest additions to the Fabric Confetti table runner line are just darling!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

They remind me of the counted cross stitch samplers that were so popular years ago.  Who would have thought now you can make them in a matter of minutes!  They all require a hoop with an embroidery field of at least 5 3/4 x 10″.

Visit our website to see the entire collection.  What great hostess gifts!

Table Runners for Every Table

When a book is already in the top 100 – and isn’t due to be released until August, I take notice….and so should you!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sherri Falls of This and That has created 20 table runners showcasing a variety of techniques.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This book would be a great basis of a series of classes.  Kit and create a table runner each month and demonstrate the featured techniques.  Order it now so you will receive the first shipment.  This one is already a hit – and less than $20, it is a bargain!

Snow is in the Forecast

Lisa Bongean of Primitive Gatherings is releasing a line of “snow” patterns next month – just in time for your Christmas in July events!

The vintage cars remind me of Christmases past.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 
And who could resist these guys!  They are just full of personality!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Most of the patterns take only a few evenings so there is plenty of time for your customers to make them for everyone on their Christmas list!  Check out all of the Primitive Gatherings patterns and set up a display. Don’t forget the pearl cottons and wools!

Stacy West is introducing several new patterns this month.  And based on past performance, these designs will fly off the shelves!  Her vintage truck went to pick up the Christmas tree and became a top selling pattern.  Now it is at the pumpkin patch!

Easter Should be on your radar

These wooden eggs in three sizes – and two colorways by The Bee Company will be arriving next month.

These eggs can be purchased individually or come with a pattern for a cross stitch banner.

But my first thought?  Wouldn’t these be an adorable way to personalize Easter baskets?  Machine embroidery instead of cross stitch would be darling – and give you the opportunity to showcase features of your sewing machines!  Carry Silhouette machines?  Design your own with that machine as well!  Think outside the box and your customers will make ALL variations!  What darling decorations for an Easter tree!
