Fat Quarter Tuesday!

Tuesday February 13

All Day Long!

It's just about my favourite time of the year! Pancake Tuesday! Yumm, delicious pancakes, waffles, crepes, loaded with butter and REAL maple syrup!

What better way to enjoy these delicious treats than with a stack of fat quarters!

10 cotton fat quarters for just $25

or

10 batik fat quarters for just $30!

Special Single price $3 cotton/$4 batiks

There are some great patterns and books using fat quarters whether you are looking to make a table runner, baby quilt or even a King size quilt!

Fact: Fat quarters are taken from a 1/2 metre of fabric, and then cut in half on the fold, creating two fat quarters from every half metre. The dimensions are approximately 20 x 21″

This pattern is a free download from Art Gallery Fabrics, they have more lovely patterns on their website too.

Jennifer has been working on her Urbanology Quilt. This is a block of the month class using the Mini Quick Curve Ruler. The blocks are fun, my favourite are the adorable birds! but the arrows and houses are extremely attractive, not to mention the butterfly and pear....

There is still room in her next class Tuesday February 28 from 1 - 4

We have both the ruler and the book in stock.

 

By the way...I just googled "Quick Curve Ruler" and clicked on the Images tab and there are some truly inspiring quilts to be made using these rulers! We have lots of patterns in the store and both Jennifer and Sue B have the knowledge to guide you through your next project or class!

Sewing Machine Needles

Change your needle today! We often overlook this very important piece of advice. We change our blades, make sure our scissors are sharp, throw out pins that are bent or dull but we keep using a sewing machine needle until it breaks!! "Start a new project - start with a new needle" is good advice.

Tony often checks a machine where the owner complains about poor stitch quality or skipping stitches, often a new needle is the only remedy needed.

We also struggle with which needle to use. Our go to needle is a Universal 80/12 when we just need to piece our fabrics together. When it comes to sewing different thickness or types of material; using different types and weights of threads, a different needle may be needed We have a free ABC Pocket Guide for you this week when you purchase a pack of needles. Hopefully this will help when you go to select a needle for your next project.
