Posted by Annette on Friday, March 2nd, 2012
Crafty Chris has turned into Chef Chris for the weekend and she's serving up terrific tools and tips at our Sewing & Stitchery Expo "Diner" booth in Puyallup this weekend. Click on the pictures to see a larger image and take a look at her fresh cooked demonstration menu!
This is the luscious, lovely Leaves Galore Ruler. If you're not wild about leaves, don't worry - the cool thing about this is it's ability to help you make wonderful curved shapes without pulling your hair out. So, cool curves and more hair - such a deal!
Isn't that just a spool knitter? Oh, no, it's Clover's NEW French Knitter! You better sit down for this one, because you can make stunningly, fabulous jewelry on this simple little tool. Really! Look below:
See! It's amazing!!! (were you sitting down?) Definitely, stop by to see how Chris is cooking this up! (I bet you could even knit with this. lol)
So what do you think this is? Clover's NEW Basket Template makes basket design super easy and pretty quick. Once you get the rhythm down, you'll be turning these out by the dozens.
Isn't this cool?! Three different shapes and sizes for making gifts and storage baskets using fabric strips or yummy yarns. Wouldn't this be fun to do with kids, too?
Ta Da! Fusible Placemats! SO Quick -SO Easy, you will LOVE these! No picture, but Chris will show you how to create these wonderful Craf-Tex Fusible Placemats and just the thought of fusing placemats together is kind of spa-like, don't you think? This stiff two-sided fusible interfacing comes 4 to a package in a pre-cut-ready-to-go oval shape. So VERY tasty!!
Kanzashi Flowers continue to be one of our favorites and Chris has marvelous samples and tips for you. Embellishing was never so easy, or so pretty! Cotton, wool, silk, so stunning!
I saved the best for last - WONDER CLIPS!!! Finally something that will hold multiple layers of fabric together securely. You can stitch right up to these, then use them over and over again and they even have seam allowance marking on them. These are pretty new, but they've been so popular already that we brought in special 50 Clip Packs for you to buy at the Expo booth. This is a "can't-sew-without-it" tool. Gotta have, gotta have!
And . . . you'll find Expo Booth Only Specials on everything Chris is demonstrating at the show. So, get up now, get going and make your sewing life better!!!
See you soon! ~ Annette
