New Fabric, new tools, events and whatnot!

Spring… time for a new font.


It’s been awhile since I wrote and I hope you are all well. Many of you I’ve seen at the recent Abbotsford and Boundary Bay shows, so you know some of what is new. But I hope there will be something new for most of you in this newsletter.


New Serenity line just arrived…


















A new set of tools for mitering and hemming…


When I was in Savannah at Quiltcon I stopped by the Clover booth for a demonstration of two relatively new tools. I love Clover products because they work… and these tools, the hot hemmer and the hot ruler are useful for projects that require hemmed edges or mitred corners. Here is a link to a YouTube video by Nancy’s notions about the products... Mitering and hemming. I brought in both products. The hot hemmer is $20 and the other is $22.


A tip about colour catchers…


Found these by accident at London Drugs on sale for $3.99 a box… First time I’ve found them in Canada. These are perfect for when we don’t pre-wash fabric and then wash the quilt for the first time.
