Plan Ahead for Lori Holt

I normally don’t write about a book that isn’t due to arrive until May, 2020 – but when that book is a collaboration between Lori Holt and Its Sew Emma, rules don’t apply!

Quilter's Cottage Book

I don’t know anything about this quilt except the size – 74 x 89 inches and the cover design. But when Its Sew Emma has four out of the top five best selling books, you know it is going to be good. And, since many of you are going to Market to plan your year, this has to be on your list!

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!

Applique in All its Glory

Organic Applique by Kathy Doughty just blew me away. I love to applique but her designs are breathtaking!

Just look at the cover quilt. She has combined a HUGE elongated courthouse steps block with quirky appliques in stunning colors to create a true masterpiece! And the photography is inspired! Don’t you love the paper umbrellas hanging from the ceiling?

Even her more traditional pattern – a vase of flowers – takes on a whole new look with her choice of colors and borders.

Just look at the variety of projects! Paper-piecing, applique, Broderie Perse – Kathy walks you through every technique!

Opening the first page of this book is like the first time you opened that big box of crayons – and never looked back!

Guide to Interfacings

Kristine Poor has written the absolute BEST pocket Guide to Interfacings! This is a must have for every shop; sales rep; and sewing enthusiast! And, should be a must read for every shop employee…

Let’s face it – the world of interfacings has gotten a lot more complicated over the years. And, to add to the confusion, each manufacturer calls similar products by different names!

In the beginning she explains the difference between wovens; non-wovens; and knits – and the advantages of each.Should you use a fusible or sew-in variety? Kristine will help you choose!

This 64 page pocket guide retails for just $8.50 and lists the type of interfacings, common uses, and the popular name brands of each. Over twenty categories are represented in an easy to follow format.

I love these pocket guides by Landauer – and this is an excellent addition!

Perfect 5 – the Perfect Companion

Its Sew Emma has created the perfect companion to the Creative Grids® Perfect 10 Quilt Ruler – the Perfect 5. This little sister was designed to sub-cut and trim those five inch squares – and fits perfectly in the palm of your hand. It even has a diagonal line to square up half square triangles. Versatility is the key

They have designed FIVE new Cut Loose Press™ patterns to showcase the features of this ruler. All of these quilts measure between 36 and 56 inches. My first reaction? Why not start a class and call it Oh baby! Every one of these projects is perfect for a baby/toddler quilt.

AND, they can be completed in two to six hours! Everyone needs a stash of baby quilts on hand so the class would appeal to all of your customers. And what a great class for beginners! They can learn a different technique each month and actually finish something beautiful!

Since they are all made with five inch squares, just have a large assortment of pre-cuts available with possible border and binding options. No kitting required!

Offer a discount on backing if they bring their completed top to the next class for show and tell. No UFO’s when they are this fast and fun!
