Favorite Stuff!

Shades of Soft Fuse
Great new product for fusing! I use Shade of Soft Fuse for ALL of my fusing needs and most especially for my new book, Bobbin' Quiltin' and Fusin' Fun! It's so soft between your layers of fabric. It's thin and flexible allowing easy sewing through four (yes, FOUR) layers of fusing! I'm offering it in two sizes: ten 8" x 9" pieces and an 18" x 3 yard roll.
Each set comes with a set of instructions for use.

10 pieces / 8" x 9" each

18" x 3 yard rolls

505 Spray and Fix
Temporary Fabric Adhesive
I love this stuff - the best for basting or spraying down your fabrics for raw edge appliqué!  Temporary aerosol adhesive for paper patterns. Eliminates the need to pin paper to fabric. Avoids torn paper patterns from pinning. Does not gum up scissors or sewing needles. Leaves no residue on finished project. Cleans up with soap and water. Acid free. Does not spot fabric or transfer onto fabric surface. It's very hard to find, but I always keep a full stock of it!
505 Spray and Fix - $12.00

YLI Invisible Thread
Great for practicing your machine quilting or if you just want to add some dimension, not color, to your quilting!  I've never had problems with this monofilament!  This is also great for using with your decorative threads - yes, I use it in the bobbin!  Size .004 thread. Very very fine, soft and pliable, this monofilament thread may make you change your mind about invisible threads forever. 
YLI Invisible Thread - $4.00

Schmetz Topstitch 90/14 Needles
I have found these to be the best needles when using a variety of decorative threads.  Use where larger eye size is beneficial.  Extra sharp with an extra large eye and a large groove to accommodate topstitch thread. 
Schmetz Topstitch 100/16 Needles
When using the thicker threads, the 100/16 needles are the way to go.  Schmetz Top Stitch needles are extra sharp and have an extra Large eye which reduces thread abrasion and breakage, and a large groove to accommodate topstitch thread.   
Machine Quilting Gloves
Use these gloves and your machine quilting will instantly improve!  Why the low cost??  I get them from an industrial supplier!  The hand coating gives full control with less resistance and drag on fabric.  At this price, why not pick up a pair!
Machine Quilting Gloves - $2.00  
Check back often for new items!
YLI Metallic Thread - $ 3.00 / each

I use this metallic exclusively.  It gives me no problems in my machine, as long as I use the Topstitch 90 needles. 
Each spool contains 100 meters of metallic.
Carnation Pink
Persian Blue
Sapphire Blue
Spring Green
Very cool colors, huh?
