I love it when I fall in love with a pattern – and see that it is “Volume One” – which means there is going to be more goodness to come! In Kim’s own words: Kimberbell Noteables are composition book covers that turn ordinary writing paper into a noteworthy journal. Each machine embroidered cover is fully lined, durable, and reusable and best of all, each are made (even pieced!) entirely in-the-hoop!
There are four different options for the small size; two for the medium size; and two for the large. The best news? They are all totally done in the hoop!
Wouldn’t these be great gifts for children and adults alike? Who wouldn’t love a personal journal or diary? Or, personalize them for members of your book club….or make them for your favorite teacher. Have shower participants write encouraging notes to the future brides or expectant mother. The gift possibilities are endless!

These “holsters” are designed to organize your sewing, office or craft area. They are made from a patented silicone. The flap sticks to any smooth, clean an dry surface. Once positioned, simply spray with water to secure in place. Drainage holes are included so objects such as paintbrushes can drain and dry. The Lil’ Holster is 3.25 x 5.25 inches and is dishwasher safe – which makes them the perfect organizers for your kitchen sink as well! They are so easy to place, move and clean!
The Hobby Holster is heat resistant up to 400 degrees so it can actually hold a glue gun. The flap can double as a work mat. Any glue will peal right off- or anything else you want.
The Lil’ Holster mini measures 2.5 x 4 inches and has all of the great features of the original.
These are the perfect gift for every quilter who dreams of being organized! Visit the website to see the entire range of colors: Holsters
I love, love, love, this new product because it has a wealth of uses! These stickers by Gudrun Erla of GE Designs are reusable, repositionable, and stick to rulers, mats, fabric, and sewing machines!
Each package contains one sheet of each color – turquoise, pink and lime green. There are 64 arrow stickers per sheet – for a total of 192 stickers for just $7.95!
They are easily removable and don’t leave any residue. Mark the cutting lines on your mat for fast, accurate and consistent cutting. And, if need be, write on them with a permanent marker or wet erase pens.
And, since this lovely lady also developed the Stripology and Stripology Squared rulers with Creative Grids®, they are the perfect companion for that tool as well.

They come in a variety of styles and fabrics. Check out the entire collection by Everything Mary. Many are in stock. Others are due to arrive any day.
Don’t forget to suggest a gift certificate for a class – and give them a class schedule. Be sure to have beginning quilting classes as well as some handbag classes on the schedule so that you can appeal to everyone!
It is no surprise that Annie Unrein of Patterns by Annie has created the perfect mesh for all of your purses, totes, and storage needs! Vinyl mesh has been around for a long time and still is the best choice for some applications.
But this polyester mesh is easy to sew; soft and pliant – the perfect choice for pockets so you can see what is inside.
It is available two different ways – pre-packaged in 18″ x 54″ size or on 15 yard x 54″ bolts (the bolts are Drop Ship only).
It is available in several different colors – and will be available next month. Please help our buyer by placing your order now. Obviously white will be popular – but what other fashion colors will you choose???? Visit our website to see the entire collection and the patterns that support it: Patterns by Annie.
Having the right tool for the job applies to quilters too. I have learned that the right ruler can save time and money – as well as guarantee that my final project will be something I can be proud of. Storing them, however, has been a problem – until now!
As you can see, it is made to fit over a hanger so you can now “hang” your rulers so they are easily accessible and protected. An added bonus? The clutter has been removed from your cutting table!
The pockets are designed to hold 12 and 24 inch rectangles as well as squares from 6 to 12 inches as well as a rotary cutter. Adjust the pockets as needed.
In my case, I have a LOT of Creative Grids® specialty rulers so I need to include more than one ruler in each pocket. Annie Unrein of Patterns by Annie has created a polyester mesh that is lightweight and the perfect divider for these pockets. Item #SUP209-15WHT
