Now that masks are mandatory in many areas, there is a whole new demand for them. They are like reading glasses – you need one for your car, your purse, by the front door…you get the picture!
The Gypsy Quilter® has developed these nose bars that help keep the mask where it needs to be.
They come in packages of 100 and are due in the warehouse this month. Use these self-adhesive Mask Nose Bars to customize a mask you already have.

I am hard pressed to make something as common as template plastic exciting – but it kind of is!
This template Plastic comes in packages of four 14 x 20 inch sheets. It is translucent so you can trace the template right onto the sheets and cut them out with scissors or a craft knife. Or, you can skip the tracing step altogether and use a die cut machine! The matte finish prevents skid and as an added bonus? It also reduces glare from overhead lights. This product is due in next week so order it now!
