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.

Machine Quilting for Everyone Including the Tools

I love it when a best selling book and a new line of tools can be showcased together for a perfect class!  Angela Walters wrote Free-Motion Quilting and it has been in the top 20 ever since!  She shows how to machine quilt on a domestic machine.  Her techniques and designs are fresh and creative and a favorite of the Modern Quilt movement.

Item #10860  Retail $22.91

Many of her designs can be created with the following templates.  Accents in Design has created a line of quilting tools that are cut from 1/4″ thick acrylic with laser scored lines that increase the design possibilities dramatically.  Finger grips are placed 2 1/2″ apart so they are easy to manipulate but they stay in place when pressure is applied thanks to the resistance strip centered on each tool.  These tools work on any machine – long arms or domestic machines and are available in several shapes and sizes.
