Giveaway Tuesday #4

Are you a messy fuser? Do you get fusible web stuck to your ironing surface and lament the errors of your ways?

Then maybe you need a Teflon sheet to protect your ironing surface from that sticky fusible web mess.

Here you see a handy Teflon pressing sheet saving my ironing board from the glue. You could be a lucky winner of that very Teflon sheet this week!

In celebration of my first online class on Creative Spark, called Little Bird and Daisies! I’m giving away items for the workshop every Tuesday until the end of the year. Leave a comment below, and you may be the lucky winner of today’s giveaway!

Creative Happy Hour for You!

I haven’t had a drink in years, but I hope you will join me in a Creative Happy Hour!

Hosted by Creative Spark, a panel discussing Embroidery: Hand Stitching Past, Present And Future will be held Friday, December 4, 2020, @ 12 pm PST. Cost is $4.99

Here’s the run down:

  • Join expert embroidery authors and instructors Laura Wasilowski, Jason and Shannon Mullett-Bowlsby (the Shibaguyz), Aimee Ray and Sharon Boggon to discuss all things embroidery, Sashiko, mending and more!
  • This is a one hour LIVE event packed full of knowledge and fun. Find out what inspires these stitching masters, embroidery trends, favorite tools, upcoming projects and other creative advice.
  • Have your questions ready for this crew of crafters because this is a conversation, not a lecture.

To purchase a seat at this event, click here. The event is hosted on a private Zoom Webinar accessible through the Creative Spark platform. 

Hope to see you there!

What Fabrics to Use and a Giveaway Winner!

When making a fused art quilt, your fabric choices can make a difference between a successful quilt and a disaster. (Ask me how I know!) Here are a few tips:

  • Choose fabrics with no finish like 100% cotton hand-dyed and batik fabrics for raw edge fusing. The color in these fabrics goes through the cloth. (Printed fabrics with a white back will show a white edge around each element when fused and cut.)
  • Select fabrics with a high thread count. They fray less when cut.
  • Wash your fabric to remove any starch or sizing before fusing. Do not use fabric softener.
