Some of you have asked for the Havel's
double curved embroidery scissors, advertised in various sewing magazines. We
now carry two styles. They will both give you a closer cut, when reaching over
your embroidery hoops.
You may have already seen the Clover mini irons. They're
great for Celtic and Stained Glass quilt designs. Now we have a neat little
ironing pad and holder specially made for the mini iron. From the same local
manufacturer we have great wooden stands for all of your quilting rulers.
We have a new circular bobbin holder. Its very easy to get
each bobbin in and out as it is made from a very soft and pliable plastic. It
holds at least 20 bobbins.
Another new storage item is the new Slimline Thread Storage
Box from Sulky. This holds up to 104 regular spools and weighs only 41bs. full.
Last but not least, have you tried our new polyester
embroidery thread? 1100mts. on the spool, and complete with end cap. Its a 36
weight. 100% polyester means the thread is stronger and more colour fast than
the rayon threads. We have the full range of solid colours and some GORGEOUS
Things to look for when "bunching up of the thread
happens underneath your fabric" - 99% of the time the machine is not
threaded correctly. Check to make sure that the thread has not come out of the
take-up lever. Make sure the thread is in the tension discs all the way. Some
of the older machines may build-up or have threads caught or broken in the
tension discs. Finally check the tension dial to make sure it is not on "0".
Sewing is fun when you get the results you want. These
classes are small and feature personalized instruction. You will be encouraged
to do your best while enjoying successful experiences. Because each student
cuts and sews at a different rate, please expect some work will need to be done
at home between classes. Check out the details by clicking on the above link.
