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. Simply remove the release paper and stick on over the bridge of your nose. Or, you can sew a channel into your mask and insert the Mask Nose Bar to make it permanent. It is washable but don’t iron over it.
Now, they have become a fashion statement and my kids want an assortment of colors. The Gypsy Quilter® has done it again. Next month we will have elastic in five yard put ups in a multitude of colors. Each box includes three packages.
These are the perfect companions to the Creative Grids® Face Mask Template 3 Sizes in 1. This template is so popular that we can’t keep up with the demand – but we are trying! We get shipments every week and send them out on a first-order/first ship basis so place your orders now!
Each box contains 3 bags of 1/4 inch elastic in a 5 yard cut. Washing Instructions: Machine washable and dryable in temp up to 200º F. Chlorine bleach safe. Dry Cleanable. Do not Iron
I do not have an embroidery machine YET so I have deferred to an expert for this post. Nichole Schneider is a Checker buyer and knows everything there is to know about the subject!
Hoop Easy Cotton Batting from The Gypsy Quilter® Stitcher Series
Do you ever have a need for just a little bit of batting? This easy to use roll of 100% natural cotton batting is perfect for all your quilt-as-you-go or in-the-hoop projects. I love it for small projects or for use in limited spaces. The convenient roll is super easy to use and space-saving to store. The 10 or 12-inch roll is a great thing to have on hand for small projects!
When combined with 100% cotton thread and fabric, batting is microwave safe for up to 6 minutes- in 2-minute intervals.
Pro tip: Hoop your preferred stabilizer and float batting in the hoop. Use this batting to give a little extra loft to in the hoop projects- especially the arms and legs of stuffed animals.

Finally! Batting that supports your stitches WITHOUT additional stabilizer. Hoop the embroidery batting and off you go! Supports up to 8,000 stitches per layer. 11% Scrim for added strength and stability, this batting will not shift.
I love this batting for
fully enclosed in the hoop projects. The batting IS the stabilizer! Nothing to
remove. Simply trim when finished. This is a GREAT stabilizer
to use for stuffed animals, pouches and more.
Your project is soft after embroidery and has a really nice loft to it
Pro tip: if you need more stitch count support, simply float a piece of tear away under the hooped batting.

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!
These bowls are great gifts – and now have never been easier. The Gypsy Quilter™ has chosen 100% cotton batting that is microwave safe – and even cut it to shape. The darts are even cut out!
Just place pre-cut batting on the wrong side of a 10.5 inch square of cotton fabric. Using 100% cotton thread, fold and stitch darts 1/4 inch away from the batting cut edge. Trim out fabric excess. Repeat with the second square of cotton and pre-cut batting. Put right sides together and stitch around the outer edge. Leave an opening for turning. Turn and stitch the opening closed. That’s all there is to it! OR sew five 2 1/2″ strips together to equal 10 1/2″ and make two bowls from a strip set!
This is such a brilliant idea! I can’t wait to use them on my Creative Grids Trim Tools! Cutting fabric accurately is the first step in creating quilts that lay flat, points that line up, and pieces that fit just right. The Gyspy Quilter Spot on Dots allows you to see exactly where you’ve lined up your fabric on your ruler by giving you magnified visibility at the point that matters most. For precision-perfect accuracy, Spot on Dots is the perfect tool for you!
The small dot is 1 inch in diameter. The large dot is 2 inches in diameter. At the center, magnification is 3x.
Place Spot on Dot adhesive side down onto your favorite ruler at the spot you want to magnify. The reusable adhesive ring will prevent the Spot on Dot from shifting while you make precise cuts. The Spot on Dot stays in place until you remove it. Store in its case after use. You can reactivate the grip on the Spot On Dot by simply washing with mild soap and water.

Roma of RJ Designs has added a new pattern to her popular jelly roll rug series – Pillows, Placemats, Coasters and Trivet Too!
What a fun and easy Make It/Take It class for the holidays! Roma has endorsed the new Gypsy Quilter Jelly Roll Tube Maker that removes the tedious folding step.
I don’t want to miss anything so I am quoting the description:
To make the Fabric & Batting Tube, place a thin batting strip on the wrong side of a 2 1/2″ fabric strip. Feed the layered (fabric & thin batting) strip, batting side up, into the wide end of the Jelly Roll ™ Tube Maker. If needed, place a sewing awl in the slot on the tool to pull the layered strip through. Then fold the now magically folded, layered strip in half as it comes out the other end & place under the sewing machine presser foot ready to stitch. Keep the Jelly Roll Tube Maker close to the sewing machine & slide along as you sew. The metal Jelly Roll Tube Maker may be used with or without an iron (with caution) for other similar technique projects.
Endorsement: “As the creator of the original Jelly Roll Rug & subsequent patterns, I have dreamt of the production of this amazing, helpful notion. The strong, sturdy & durable Jelly Roll(tm)Tube Maker will ease the sometimes tedious & painful folding process of creating the fabric & batting tubes. The Jelly Roll ™ Tube Maker will save time, produce consistent width tubes & help to provide amazing results.”
