I use Perfect Circles by Karen Kay Buckley in two ways: as templates to draw around, and as a way to make circles ready to machine applique with the edges starched under. either way, they are a dandy tool to have!
Leave a comment to enter the drawing. A winner will be chosen by the random number generator tomorrow. If you are not the lucky winner, you can find Perfect Circles here.
I like short pins when I applique, and you can’t get any shorter than 1/2″! Short pins hold your applique neatly in place and they stay out of the way as you sew. What’s not to love?! Elaine is the lucky winner!
I started off the new year off with a Giveaway of a To-Go size container of Lo-Lo Head-To-Toe moisturizer. This ‘Plain Jane’ container is unscented so even if you are allergic to scents, you can use it. Margery is the lucky winner!
If you were not the lucky winner, you can order yours here. f you are not Margery, you might still consider buying your own Lo-Lo moisturizer. You will love the way these unique bars moisturize rough, dry skin. Once applied, the moisturizer deeply penetrates the skin and lasts through multiple hand washings. The artisan-quality bar moisturizers are handcrafted using locally sourced beeswax and essentials oils. This is the perfect size to carry with you.
When you need to make long stems that are uniform in width, Perfect Stems and the perfect tool. Linda Bell, this week’s lucky winner, will receive this package of 8 plastic strips in a variety of widths that help you press your bias stem ‘tubes’ flat
Virginia Frederick is this week’s winner of a cake Needle Nanny.
Needle Nannies are magnetic jewelry that can hold your needle, pins, and even a small pair of scissors! You can wear them on your clothes, or attach them on something close to where you are stitching.
This Piece O’ Cake Needle Nanny is special and one of the last ones that I have… and it can be yours! But wait, there’s more! To celebrate the season, I’m including a holiday scissor charm with this Needle Nanny. Ho, ho, ho!
