Around the Net: New Sewing Machine Tool & Sponsorship (123)

So I'm gazing around the net and I come across Sheila's Blog and she's writing about this new gadget for our sewing machines...interest piqued?

It's used to make perfect circles & curves and is supposed to be adaptable for all makes and models and years - can you say, bliss? Someone actually invented something so universal? Check out this site Just Curves as she is the inventor of this great gadget. I love piecing and I love piecing curves even more :) Thanks for this!!

Don't forget to sign up for our Quarterly Newsletter chalked full of all of the most exciting posts, new stuff that's coming, classes, patterns and sew much more next one will be ready to send out in July.

Don't forget to vote on our Block of the Months coming up this fall there as there is something for everyone and we need YOUR help deciding :)

Until next time, have a happy and creative day!!

Around the Net: Sublime Stitching (entry 109)

Jenny over at Sublime Stitching posted a question on her Facebook Fan Page asking her stitching followers what are the tools that you can't live without? I'm becoming more of a stitcher everyday, incorporating embroidery into my Block of the Month Clubs I'm loving the stitching part. I love the patchwork and the combination of stitching in the same block, I do some work at my beautiful sewing machine and I also can do some of the work in front of the TV, it's perfect!

Anyway, back to Jenny, here's the list she compiled and all of the links for you to find these goodies:

This iron-on transfer pen seemed to be #1, sounds very interesting

Clip-on reading light "for PM stitching" know ladies who have this and love it

Lightbox - which I was recently given one and boy do I LOVE my lightbox, thanks Carla

Thread Heaven, haven't used this but heard good things about it

Seam Ripper, here's a link to the one I carry.

Sticky Stabilizer, sounds like that sticky wax paper stuff?
(different from iron-on)

Magnifying Light, haven't needed this

Punch Needles - this is something I'm very much considering getting into - any of you do punch needle?

Needle Nest, personally I love my tuffets.

Water Erasable Pen, have one of these

Tracing Paper, haven't had a need for this

Laying Tool, I want one of these but not sure why?

Floss Organizer, have one of these and LOVE it!!

Thanks so much Jenny for posting this list now I have a shopping list of my own :)
