Welcome to Country Treasure’s brand new blog. We are calling it Threading The News!
We hope to be able to “blog” once a week or so to let our quilters know what’s happening !
Carolyn and Sarah sat down a couple of weeks ago with our sales rep, Pauline, from Checkers, our notions distributor. In the next couple of months we are expecting a lot of new items that we can’t wait to show to you.
We just received our first shipment which includes:
Mary Ellen’s Best Press, a great spray product for removing those stubborn wrinkles in fabrics. There are six scents (say that 3 times fast!) to choose from and one scentless.
A new ruler for cutting triangles for ½ square and ¼ square triangles
Sarah has already tried our Print ‘n Fuse which is sheets of Wonder Under that go into your printer, eliminating a lot of tracing! Come in and see her Valentine sample – Wrapped in Love by Patch Abilities.
Have you tried Betty Bands? This is an alternative to machine quilting gloves that leaves your fingers free to manipulate while still gripping the fabric.
New fabrics arrived last week too:
Hydrangeas from Clothworks
Hurrah – patriotic and Ember Reds and EverGreens – reproductions by Jo Morton, for Andover.
We have been kitting up lots of projects for you:
Life on The Farm – Wilmington Fabrics
Tangled Threads – Red Rooster
Best Friends – Clothworks
Don’t forget the Vermont Shop Hop will be here before you know it! Passports are available. 17 Shops are participating this year!
That’s it for this week. Please check back with us in a week or “sew” .
