Everyone needs great storage and Creative Options brings us practical storage solutions with flare. The Tapered Tote is the perfect sewing basket that will fit all your sewing basics and currently comes in two great color choices.

Love the idea of a thimble but never could find a comfortable one that would stay on my finger. Clover brings us the solution.  Protect and Grip Thimbles have flexible rubber for a comfortable fit that stays put and a metal thimble cap to protect your finger.

Wonder Clips and the New Jumbo Wonder Clips hold multiple layers together without damaging or distorting the fabric. Perfect for vinyls, piles, and heavy weight fabrics. Wonder clips all have a flat back that makes it easy to feed to the presser foot. The clips also have seam allowance markings. Check out a few clever ways to use these great tools… here.

And last, but certainly not least, Accuquilt.  Have you ever envisioned the die you need for a project, just to find that no matter how hard you looked and how many companies you look at, your perfect die just doesn’t exist? Well Accuquilt has the solution in Create your own GO! Custom dies. Send them the concept, approve the design, and your die ships in 5 business days! And if you are one of the first 100 you get a little something extra. Go check it out at

  5. This will be a fantastic gift for one of my daughters for this Christmas! We can’t afford much this year, so this will be a great help. I’ll make her some mug rugs and paint a mug or two, to go with this super gift!
