The pattern name is even adorable! Sew Cherished created the Snowflake Squad to help you with your winter decorating. Using the interchangeable banner and attaching the appliques with magnets – these little banners change out really quickly for a big impact. Each wool applique measures approximately 5″ in diameter.
This is the winter version of the Gouly Gang pattern I shared a few weeks ago. Made of hand-dyed wool, each pumpkin head is approximately 4″ x 4″. Designed to fit in the banner with magnets, they could easily be made into separate ornaments as well.
Both patterns are designed to work with this 67.5″ garland from Kraft Klub. Simply affix the wool work with magnets. The circles have a chalkboard finish you can write on them with chalk, too.
Here are the magnets designed to work with everything above! They are1″ inch enamel magnets that come in a 12 pack.
Don’t you love having a handwork project this time of year? Let’s sit in front of the fire and stitch away!
I love these wool designs by Dawn Shuck. The height is an added bonus since you can still display pictures, etc. beneath them. And the magnets make it easy to change out the designs.
These are great projects for those newbies that came from knitting or cross-stitch. These newest additions to the line are expected at the beginning of October. And, don’t forget to order your stand! From Kraft Klub, Black Round Stand# KK8864-B.
I LOVE this new round the year series by Sew Cherished! All of her designs have that awe factor that you just can’t resist! These 10″ wool circles are the perfect handwork project and would be a great wool Round of the Month!
We already have pics on the website for the first three. The next three are entered – but we don’t have the pics yet! Don’t you love a surprise – especially when they are this cute???
I love the stand because it is 22″ high so it adds height to any display. Smaller things can be showcased around the base to create a charming vignette! The designer used sew-in magnets to attach the wool design!
The patterns and stand are all due to arrive later this month.
Many of you have had to close your stores during the quarantine and are looking for ways to connect with your customers. Kitting these Gathered Hearts patterns and mailing them as a block of the month might be just what you need!

Lisa Bongean is famous for working and wool and her eye for detail. She adds that awe factor to everything she touches. Her latest book – shipping this week – is full of all of the tips and tricks Lisa has learned along the way.
Ditch the trial-and-error and learn from Lisa’s decades of experience step by step: wool appliqué, embroidery stitches, and much more. Filled with close-up photos of Lisa’s hands working her magic, this book will show you how to master each technique down to the tiniest detail.
Start with Lisa’s fabric tips; then move on to her favorite tools, templates, threads, and needles. How does she create her slim vines, pretty pennies, and flower appliqués? It’s all here, along with a dozen embroidery stitches in photos so clear, you can’t go wrong.
I LOVE this! I have had my big board for years and loved being able to press entire quilt tops with ease. But, when the wool mats came out, I had THREE so I could put them end to end to iron tops. Not an ideal solution, but once you’ve used a wool pressing mat, nothing else will do. Then I got a phone call from the folks at Gypsy Quilter asking me what sizes they should add to the line! Well, that was a no-brainer – and the Big Board size was born!
This wool mat fits the Big Board perfectly – and guess what, we have those too…..
You can buy just the Big Board by Tracy’s Tables which is made to fit over your existing ironing board, or in my case, on a counter in my sewing room.
Or, you can buy the Big Board with it’s own collapsible legs.
Now, they even have a fabric corral so the fabric does not fall on the floor!
And, now there is a new portable size of Big Boards which will fit in your car. This size is perfect for retreats and classrooms!
Remember, every seam you sew has to be pressed and pressing can make all of the difference! Quality products make that difference!
