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.

Sew Stars for Texas

Amy Barickman has been attending Market for over twenty years so Houston, Texas has become a second home.  In addition, her mother’s quilt shop was flooded several years ago so she personally experienced the devastation that a flood can bring.  So when the hurricane hit Texas, she wanted to help and came up with a brilliant idea.

Amy is donating $1.00 for every Wall Art Stars pattern sold.  Think of it as a Texas Star.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Don’t forget to order plenty of interfacing packages as well.  These packages include a free ornament pattern as well as a pressing sheet.

 

 

Why not add a class or demo to your Fall schedule and collect donations to help the cause?  Once your customers know the technique, they will want to have more options.  Visit our website to see all of the Fabriflair options.
