Laura’s Little Book of Collage #LHFLBC
These projects can still be done in time for Christmas so check out these popular choices. For those of you who have a furry member of the family…
What seamstress wouldn’t like this work of art in her sewing room?
Or bring back memories of Old Blue…
Why not start your New Year’s resolution today – and throw that box out! Add some classes to the schedule that will expand techniques for your current customers – and may actually introduce a new audience to quilting. After all, no perfect seam allowance is required!
Many of you “winers” have heard, most wineries are going to screw top lids instead of corks. What are they going to do with all of that cork? Turn it into fabric of course – and it is arriving in September!
It comes in approximately 5 1/2 yard rolls that are 54″ wide. At around $60 to $80 a yard retail, this is definitely a statement piece – but oh what a statement it makes!
Laurie is the buyer for this and is also a machine embroiderer. She LOVED it so I can’t wait to see what the machine shops do with it!
We already have designers working on samples using your favorite patterns so we will keep you posted. But for now, I just wanted you to know it was coming – and start dreaming of possibilities. We would love to hear YOUR ideas! And look at these colors and textures!
Let the creativity begin!!!
When SEVEN books in the Checker 100 are books on free-motion quilting, you know that your customers now have the self-confidence required to complete their own projects. FOUR are written or co-written by Angela Walters!
Her latest collaboration with Tula Pink will be out this summer.
Quilt with Tula & Angela (#S3159) combines Tula’s knowledge of color with Angela’s quilting designs.
You have a front row seat as they choose the quilting patterns to accent Tula’s graphic designs. The book includes 17 designs by Tula and 24 quilting designs by Angela – and is filled with full color eye candy!
Who can resist a collaboration between two of the top names in the industry who have earned their stripes??? Its is worth the wait.
Shape by Shape Collection 2 (#11152) is a follow up to her first Shape book. Collection 2 includes 70 designs to enhance all of the geometric shapes in your quilts!
Her original Free-Motion Quilting book (#10860) has become the go-to source for everyone who wants to give this a try. This is the must have book that should be in everyone’s library!
Angela combined forces with Christa Watson – who is an expert on quilting on a home sewing machine in The Ultimate Guide to Machine Quilting (#B1350T). Learn which motifs are suited to which medium and why.
Why not set up a display of the books and notions that they recommend in these books? You probably already have the notions, needles, and threads you need in your shop – you just need to draw attention to it! Create an “instant” display today!
The original tuffet pattern by Sharyn Cole of The Tuffet Source has been so popular that quilt shops across the country have waiting lists for classes. And once they make one, they sign up for another class to make more!
The original pattern (Item #PPFP100) has been a top 20 pattern since its release. The pattern includes a fusible foundation and the instructions needed to create your own heirloom tuffet.
Since customers can’t stop at just one, fusible foundations (#PFI100) are now available separately for just $18. These do not include the pattern, but then, your customers already have that!
Or you can buy the foundations by the bolt. There are 15 foundations on a bolt (W-PFB115) bolt.
But now there is a “tuffet in a day” version (#TDFUS1 Retail $32.00) with instructions for a shirred, pieced or whole cloth version. The fusible foundations work for this pattern as well. The pattern includes a four inch button to complete your project in style. These products are due to arrive by the beginning of June so place your order now.
Combine hexies and 60 degree triangles to create true works of art.
Item #B1235T Retail $26.99
Katja Marek created 52 paper-pieced 6 inch blocks. Anyone can create these 60 degree kaleidoscope works of art. Simply amazing! In this case, a picture is worth a thousand hexies….
This is a great modern quilt – or would add interest to any backing!
Solids with black are always a winning combination and show off these designs beautifully…
Don’t you love the prairie points on the topper?
This is not your grandmother’s version!
Or, make a twin size quilt.
A perpetual calendar is due out in July – just in time for Shop Hop season. (Item #C147, Retail $23.99). Order it now so you get it as soon as it arrives!
