Free Label Template!
Image

In the last few week’s we have had lots of requests for quilt labels. Here is a great alternative…
EQ Printables are Inkjet Fabric Sheets – treated fabric that will go through your printer. Simply print out the free template onto the fabric, allow to dry for 15 minutes, soak to rinse away excess ink, and then once dry – cut to size and applique like any other fabric Available by-the-sheet in 2 sizes – A4 @ $5ea and A3 @ $9ea.
This technique can be done by you at home – we used Word to make up these – and you can add personal images such as photos and quotes. Remember – always test print on plain paper first to make sure that your printer settings and sizing is correct.

A Little Shot of Steam…

ImageThe Jeeves Mini Steam Iron is one of those tools that once you’ve borrowed it off of a friend you have to have one and wonder how you went so long without it. Small enough to fit into the palm of your hand , this little iron is more than just portable – keep it beside you at the sewing table to press seams while you piece without getting up and down to the iron board, or use it to press machine embroidery applique or patchwork projects while the fabric is still in the hoop! With the option of both steam or dry ironing, and the ease of a non-stick sole plate, this little unit makes an invaluable side-kick in the sewing room.

Low Fat Jelly Roll!
ImageA Jelly Roll is a great way to buy lots of colours at once. Containing forty 2.5 inch strips, each 42 inches long, it is a perfect way to get started or makes a great gift. With a total of 2.5 metres of fabric wrapped up in it, a Jelly Roll is available in lots of fabric ranges and is $54.95.
