This is brilliant! You can now order a multitude of fun 58/60 inch cuddle prints in 2-yard cuts! These will be arriving in June. Here is just a sampling of the variety Shannon Fabrics has available:
I put this on the back of almost all of my throws – my kids and grandkids fight over them! But, do the math! If I have a throw that measures 54″ x 66″, I would have to pieced the back and even if I ieced it horizontally, it would take about 3 1/2 yards of fabric. At $12 a yard, that would cost $42. Since Cuddle is 60 inches wide, the back would not have to be pieced AND would retail for under $40….and it FEELS SO GOOD!!!
And now you can offer more choices without having to store over-sized bolts and having the fussies from cutting! Think about what kits you have and what classes you are teaching and order them now! By the time your customers finish the tops, the backings will be in stock!
Nobody knows how to add that awe factor to any holiday like Nancy Halvorsen! And she is back with her latest fabric line with Benartex – Better Not Pout. Of course, there is a book with 20 projects to support the line as well!
Houses are everywhere this season – including in the companion fabric line, available in a white or navy background:
She also included some stocking panels which are so cute, you will want to make some just to fill with gifts instead of wrapping paper. There are two different panels to choose from and she even remembered the cat and dog!
Each panel is approximately 2/3 of a yard.
Her tea towels are so popular that she is now offering them in packages or on bolts!
Everything is due to arrive the end of May so place your orders now!
Have a Heart is a top-selling pattern that gives instructions for two different sizes. The large (74 x 90) is a perfect throw size for your favorite couple and is made with 2-1/2″ strips. The smaller size (37 x 45) is a great wall hanging or baby quilt and is made with 1-1/2″ strips. Why not personalize it by having the machine quilter quilt in the names of those you love?
As shop owners, here is the GREAT news! Wilmington Prints makes an entire line of pre-cuts called Essential Gems in multiple sizes in specific color ranges. This quilt takes one package of heart fabric and two packages of background. How easy is that to kit???
It takes 32 2-1/2″ strips for the hearts and 80 2-1/2″ strips for the background. That means the binding can be sewn from the extra 8 heart strips and the scraps! These packs come in 24 and 40 strips so make sure you order the right size!
Cotton Ginnys does cute so well – and this has to be the cutest!
If this place mat or table runner doesn’t make you smile in the morning, nothing will! We even have some chicken wire fabric from Elizabeth Studio to go with it! But checks, stripes and polka dots would be just as charming!
What a great combination! AND, a great choice for a make it/take it class! They could easily finish it in an afternoon! The fabric is in stock now, the pattern is due later this month so order now!
I just love her stuff – and she is such a great marketer that she makes my life so easy! Her book Create with Cork is a must-have. It includes all of the tips and tricks that make sewing cork a breeze!
And now she has packaged the hardware for all of the projects in the book – in five finishes: gold, antique, silver, nickel, and rose gold.
That’s right – any of the hardware required to make all projects in the book. What a great series of classes!
The cork is pre-packaged in 15 x 18-inch pieces as well:
They can mix and match in class and have several gifts on hand! The book and cork are in stock now. The hardware is expected next week.
Bird Brain Designs – need I say more??? Her latest fabric line features her classic red that is the perfect compliment to her redwork. Sheltering Tree by Bird Brain Designs Collection from Maywood Studio.
This quilt kit is the perfect showcase for the Sheltering Tree panel. #KIT-MASCOH
