Shop Hops and Shows – Part Two

We can’t keep these Hello Pouches in stock! A bargain since the pattern has instructions for four sizes.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Once again, a sample is worth a thousand words – or in this case – patterns! But don’t make your customers search for what they need! Have the Soft and Stable; vinyl and zippers as a part of the display. Include fun fabrics.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

One half yard pack of Soft and Stable is enough to make an entire set of four pouches – and it comes prepackaged!

The vinyl comes in a roll – and should be arriving soon. Cut that into 1/3 yard cuts – after all, who wants to stand in line for something so basic?

Two of By Annie’s 30″ zippers will make a complete set so include them in the display as well.

These are also a basis for a great class. Remove the intimidation factors. Teach a machine quilting class that will be used for the bases. (This is a great way to showcase the Creative Grids Angela Walters templates). Then show how easy it is to insert zippers and sew through vinyl.
