Cut Loose Press™ patterns are designed for shops to demonstrate products. They are reasonably priced and are easy projects to showcase tools, notions, and techniques.
For instance, Rainbow Swirls was created with the Creative Grids 6″ Curvy Log Cabin Trim Tool.
Drum roll please!!!! The minimum order has been changed from twelve to six – which means smaller shops can now participate. AND, they have added a hang-hole at the top so they can be easily hung for display. Everything else you loved about CLP stays the same.
For those of you who haven’t tried Cut Loose Press™ (CLP), here is a perfect example of why you should.
This six inch log cabin trim tool designed by Jean Ann Wright is one of a series of trim tools – and is a great demo! The technique? The strips for the logs are cut 1/4″ larger than needed. Each round – which consists of two wide and two narrow logs – are trimmed before the next round is added. Any variation caused by cutting, sewing and pressing are corrected before the next round is added! Perfect results every time!
Item #CGRJAW6 Retail $17.95
Now that you have everyone’s attention, why not offer a class immediately after the demo? Why not offer the class FREE if they buy the tool and kit for Roundabout – this gorgeous tablerunner – another favorite CLP!
Once your customers see how easy it is to create these intricate designs, they will want to do more. Many of these patterns are fat quarter friendly so it is easy to kit. If you don’t sell a kit, just return the fat quarters to inventory! Absolutely no risk!
These patterns also suggest other notions that your customers may want. For instance, since these are scrappy quilts, a Bitty Buddy by Gypsy Quilter is convenient because it is a tabletop waste basket that collapses to carry to class.
