A new product allowing those of us who love to applique (who doesn't like to applique???!!) with a non slip surface to place our pattern and pieces on. We have usually recommended a teflon sheet or parchment paper, but those tend to shift a bit everytime we place a piece of material on them. Fusamat stays in place! Now your pattern will stay where you want and won't shift a bit here and there distorting your placement. The mat is easy to see through making it perfect for tracing pieces for hand or machine applique. Fusamat can be rolled or folded for easy storage.


The mat comes in two sizes, Fusamat 1 12 x 12" $49.95

and Fusamat 2 12 x 18" $79.95

This week, take $5 off the regular price!

Here is a video of with the creator of Fusamat showing how easy it is to use.

Pineapple Trim Tool

During Shop Hop, Laurie was one of our Daily Demo Divas. She showed us how easy it is to use the Pineapple Trim Tool to make a quilt or a bag. This is a perfect project for scrap lovers, as you just need to have lots of strips ready to sew. Since you trim each time, accuracy is not needed! Just stitch, press and trim.

Laurie also used this pattern to make a wonderful tote bag, the pattern is just $5.00 or check out the book with so many projects and inspiration, you'll want to start digging through your stash today!

Watch the video to see how easy it is or drop by the store for a demo in the Wed. Oct 17 anytime between 9 -12. We will have lots of samples to try!

Enchanted Forest Flannel - Northcott

You have to feel this fabric to believe how lovely and soft the flannel is! Create a cozy quilt for anyone in the family and they will be wrapped up all winter.

The Enchanted Forest collection features rabbits, deer, fox and owls amid a winter scene. We have kitted two options for you to make a lap size quilt. Choose from Wanda's design with staggered blocks of flying geese surrounding the panels, or an attic window classic approach. This pattern eliminates the mitred seam, making it a simple process to achieve the corner seam! Choose either kit, just $89.95

Add a co-coordinating flannel backing for an additional $49.95

Check out the entire collection on the Northcott website Click Here
