This and that…

SuperHanger

Laura D., the creator of the SuperHanger, was kind enough to send me one for review. Click here to see more about it. I like it! Her website shows that the hanger can be used for over-sized clothes (like sports uniforms) but it's really nice to hang a quilt over.

I roll my quilts and store them on high shelves in my closet but there are times when I have a work in progress that having this sort of hanger for will be terrific. They are reasonably priced and I happily recommend them to you.

In other news, I received the box of fabric that I bought at the Sewing Party last week. (Many thanks to Jean for sending the fabric so quickly!)

My favorites may be the grays. They are lovely with the clear colors that I mostly use. The fabric that looks like newsprint was a gift from the owner of the shop. I will think of her smiling face when I use it!

Many of the fabrics I bought are from Yuwa and are hard to find. These imported Japanese fabrics are more expensive than typical cottons and they are hard to find unless you have a shop that stocks them. I think I'm going to start stocking them. I may have to wait until Fall Market, but soon, they're coming…

FYI – I always, always, always wash and dry my fabric before adding it to my stash. Here's what the same fabric, ready to be put away:

Gotta love new fabric!

  1. I am lucky enough to live with in a 30 min drive of Sewing Party and have lots of the Japanese fabrics sneaking into my stash too!
