Penny Haren 8:00 – 9:30 Creative Grids + Cut Loose Press = Perfect Demo
Join me to learn how to combine two Checker exclusives – Creative Grids and Cut Loose Press – and make them the foundation of your class and demo schedule.
Creative Grids is the most complete ruler line in the world – but is made right here in the USA! Once you “Experience CGR”, you will never go back. Our rulers feature Non-Slip grip which stops the rulers from slipping on the fabric when pressure is applied. And, these rulers are not – and will never be – sold in chains. They are exclusively sold to Independents like you!
Item #CGRTKAL45 Retail $17.95
Cut Loose Press are reasonably priced patterns that are, again, only available through Independents. These patterns are printed on card stock on protected paper which makes it difficult to copy. Since they are printed on demand, each pattern comes imprinted with your business name – and therefore, are always in stock. Each pattern showcases four notions to encourage additional sales.
Surf and Sand
This pattern features the ruler above. The Dresden Plates are created with the CGRTKAL45.
Three other notions are featured:
The Creative Grids 8 1/2″ Square It Up and Fussy Cut Ruler is used to square up the blocks after the Dresden Plates are appliqued.
Item #CGRSQ8 Retail $22.45
The Hole Thing is used to trace the templates for the center circle on the Dresden Plate.
Item #CGRTPHT Retail $5.95
This template is created with freezer paper….
Item #FREPA8112 Retail $8.49
One simple pattern gives you the opportunity to share four different quality products with your customers! And, once they like the technique – and are comfortable with it – they can move on to other projects – a few are featured in this book:
Item #L113008 Retail $24.95
Kathy Seal has written three CLP patterns that support the Creative Grids Double Strip 90.
Item #CGRDBS90 Retail $26.95
These patterns all feature a specific technique using the ruler:
Hot Cross Stars
All of these blocks have bias edges, so it is a great opportunity to share the benefits of Best Press.
Item #560032 Retail $3.99
Janice Pope – Bias Binding Simplified
Janice designed the Bias Binding Ruler for Creative Grids and has made me a believer! I had always heard that you should use bias binding – but never thought it was worth the time – until I talked to Janice and watched her video!
Item #CGRABB1 Retail $18.95
This is the first CGR ruler that illustrates how to cut bias binding right on the ruler and the video shows the entire process: cutting the bias, turning the corners and joining the sides!
She even designed a quilt made with 2 1/2″ strips cut with this ruler and the 45 degree angles that are cut from the ends.
Item #ABB1207 Retail $8.00
Creative Grids designers love Creative Grids and are very supportive of each other. So when Janice tried Jean Ann’s Log Cabin Trim Tools, these two Southern gals clicked! Janice designed a quilt that uses all three sizes of the Log Cabins – 6″; 8″ and 12″! And, yes, she will be sharing this quilt with you too…..
These are demoes so no supplies are required. Just show up and be ready to learn! Then come to the booth to “Experience CGR!”
