Register Notions

The Gypsy Quilter is releasing several new notions next month – all would be a great register display. They are reasonably priced and functional – a great combination!

These Heat-Resistant Thimbles protect fingers when pressing. The nubbed surface also works perfectly when pressing seams open. Each container holds 16 of three different sizes. The large one fits my thumb (which I use to fingerpress seams open).

These Silicone Iron Rests come in three different colors: red; green; and purple. Raising and lowering an iron as often as we do when quilting can cause carpal tunnel.
Do your wrists a favor and rest your hot iron on this silicon rest.

No-Slip Grip Dots can be applied to the wrong side of templates and rulers to stop slipping.

These are the type of notions people don’t know they need until they see them – and then can’t live without!

Grids Girls Take Note

This new book by Deb Heatherly is flying off the shelves but don’t worry – more are on the way! Her newest book – Creatively Yours – features 10 quilts in a multitude of sizes and four table runners.

This book is a must-have for all of you gadget gurus! These quilts combine several different Creative Grids® tools with stunning results.








This book is a perfect companion to any Creative Grids® or Grids Girl program. Demonstrate a different ruler each month and build as they learn to show how they all work together to create the quilts of your dreams!

Time for a Coffee Break

Karla Alexander of Saginaw Street Quilts has a new Cut Loose Press™ pattern #CLPKAL012 that is going to fly off the shelves like her Crazy Christmas Tree #CLPKAL009! Look how cute this is …

I can’t wait to make it! Actually, I want to design my dinette around this. Can you imagine covering a cornice board with these and framing individual ones for the wall? Of course, I’ll make the table runner too – but who can stop there when they are so darn cute?????

Just like the Crazy Christmas Tree and Crazy Hearts #CLPKAL011 – they all use the Creative Grids® Spider Web Quilt Ruler #CGRKA6.

.

Crazy Christmas Tree is the #1 selling Cut Loose Press™ of all time!

Crazy Hearts uses the same ruler and same technique. Why not start a series of classes? These are great classes and demos!



There are TONS of companions for this ruler so check out the patterns shown on the website under the ruler for more possibilities. Why not demonstrate those techniques in class? Everyone loves getting more bang for their buck – but make sure you have THOSE patterns in stock as well.

Boo!

Two of The Pattern Basket patterns have hit the top 100 and a new one is expected in September. And once you see how cute it is, it will be too!

Boo is just so darn cute and is just pieced with squares and rectangles.

Pumpkin Season can be made out of five inch squares and is a great way to use up scraps. Once again, simple piecing.

Drumroll please…….This is the newest pattern due in September. Order it now because who can resist???

Set up a display with these patterns and random oranges, grays and blacks

Panels and Purses

The new patterns that will be showcased at Market are starting to arrive – and these two are sure to be hits. After all, they are from Aunties Two!

Happy Hauler is a BIG bag that goes together very quickly because the fabric is center stage! What a unique use of a panel – and what great results!

Cork Totes features either an open or zippered top and cork accents that elevates this to a boutique exclusive. Simply stunning!

Both patterns will be available next month.

Stitchin’ in the Kitchen

I love, love, love these kts by Bareroots. Each kit includes a high quality Dunroven towel; floss; pattern and the rickrack trim.

What a great foundation for a project of the month program. All of the designs are also available as patterns and additional towels can be ordered separately. Design a program that works for you!
