To use, simply peel off the Digits and stick them on the top of your SewTites. Remove and reuse as needed. The package includes 50 clear stickers, with 1 to 25 numbered in white for you, the rest blank to letter or number how you see fit (since we all sew a little differently!).

Pattern by lillyella Stitchery, this cute little folio is designed for storing SewTites magnetic pins with two pieces of metal (sold separately) in the body to keep them in place.

A double layer of felt acts as a buffer between the SewTites on the front and back and also provides storage for pins and needles. The Hold Tite Folio is perfect for tucking into a project bag, keeping on your sewing table, or using for extra storage to help prevent a clump of SewTites and everything they stick to!

Pre-fab sheet metal inserts for lillyella Stitchery’s Hold Tite Folio pattern.
Includes two (2) – 2in x 5.625in 26-gauge galvanized sheet metal pieces with rounded corners and edges (to ensure the edges don’t cut your fabric).

Bowl Cozy Template Set

Creative Grids® has joined forces with The Gypsy Quilter® to make it even easier to mass-produce one of their all-time favorite products, the bowl cozies. This nested set includes both sizes of bowls. The small bowl cozy template works with the precut bowl cozy batting (TGQ036), and the other template with the large (TGQ103). If you prefer to cut your own batting, we recommend The Gypsy Quilter® cotton batting (TGQHECB12 or TGQHECB18) which is microwave safe.

Just two squares of batting and two squares of fabric make one cozy. Simply fold the fabric in quarters and rotary cut around the template. It doesn’t get any easier than that! A complete set of instructions is included with the templates.

Note: Since the finished product is intended to be used in a microwave, you MUST use 100% cotton thread, batting and non-metallic fabric.

Creative Grids Bowl Cozy Template Set


This 100% cotton batting is great for other projects as well. Tired of leftover batting scraps when working on smaller projects? This 100% cotton batting is designed just for you! It is the perfect choice for quilt-as-you-go projects, placemats and table runners. There are 10 yards on a roll, so you can complete multiple projects with just one roll. Since it is needle punched, it can be quilted a maximum of eight inches between quilting lines. Weighing 4-oz. per square yard, it has just enough body to add dimension to your project. This batting is microwave-safe in 2-minute increments, up to 6 minutes, when you use 100% cotton thread and fabric.

The Gypsy Quilter Cotton Batting 12in x 10yds

The large bowl cozy required an 18-inch width.

The Gypsy Quilter Cotton Batting 18in x 10yds

This Color-Blocked Bowl Cozy from Cut Loose Press™ is created with the Gypsy Quilter® Large Bowl Cozy Pre-Cut Batting which is microwave safe. All you need is 1/3-yard of two coordinating fabrics and a few hours of your time. Both sides of the cozy are cut from an over-sized quarter-square triangle block, the perfect choice to accent the quarters of the bowl.

The pattern is written for one cozy, but since the pre-cuts include enough batting to make four, you may want to make them all for gifts! To make all four, you need just 1 yard of two coordinating fabrics. Invite friends or teach a class. They will love going home with a finished project.

Vintage Notions

Amy Barickman is re-releasing her Vintage Notions book which was inspired by a correspondence school in Scranton, Pennsylvania. This school existed over 100 years ago!

Amy Barickmans Vintage Notions

In her words:
This book is an inspirational guide and creative collection that features needlework, cooking, sewing, fashion, and fun. It was inspired by the wisdom of Mary Brooks Picken, a pioneer in the domestic arts and international authority on dressmaking and fashion. Mary’s sole purpose, which resonated so deeply with me, was to educate women, encourage their entrepreneurial spirit, and elevate the value of their work. Mary’s name may not be familiar to you now, but in these pages you will be charmed by her vision and inspired by her blueprint for living a simple, fulfilling life.

In Vintage Notions, I join creative forces with a previous era to preserve Mary’s work and showcase it alongside my own extensive collection of vintage textiles, needlework, illustrations, and memorabilia, for a new generation of sewing and crafting sisters.
The book features:
– Inspirational essays and projects for each month of the year
– Seasonal recipes and decorating ideas
– Four storage pockets one for each season
– Twelve Magic Patterns easy-to-make, chic sewing projects
– Vintage timeless advice on health, character, beauty, style, fashion, parenting, communication, friendship, spirituality, community
– Glossary of Stitches with 28 illustrated hand embroidery stitches.

Amy has also released a series of YouTube videos – one for each month that provides additional insight into each chapter.:

If you would like to do this as a book club on a monthly basis, study guides are also available:

Skinny Pineapple not a Diet

Create perfect 6, 9, or 12-inch finished Pineapple blocks by squaring up each round of strips as they are sewn. Since each round is squared up before the next set is added, the blocks are perfectly square. The cutting requirements for the strips and center square are printed right on the tool.

The widths of the logs finish to 3/4-inch so even a six-inch block looks impressive. Add two more rounds to complete a 9-inch finished pineapple. Add two more rounds to complete a 12-inch finished block. It really is that easy, and accurate.

Creative Grids 12in Skinny Pineapple Trim Tool

There are five new Cut Loose Press™ patterns to support this tool.


Pineapple Pinwheel combines two favorite blocks, pinwheels and pineapples The pinwheels are created by piecing the corner triangles before the final block trim. When four blocks are sewn together, the secondary pinwheel pattern is formed. Magic!

Pineapple Pinwheels


Pineapple Puzzle utilizes this Tool to its full potential. This pattern combines 6-inch and 12-inch finished blocks to create the puzzle design. There are special markings on the tool to guarantee that the 6-inch finished block is trimmed to the exact right size. What a great way to learn how to use the tool!
