Join in the excitement this month by visiting great craft industry manufacturers like Fiskars®. They’ll be celebrating all month long on their website, as well as on Facebook and other social channels. They are running an Instagram/Facebook contest in September which features ways to find inspiration for your sewing projects. It promises to be lots of creative fun! You’ll also find loads of inspiration on the Fiskars site. The Fiskars design team is one of the best, and they always provide great project ideas and tips.
Amplify RazorEdge Fabric Shears are designed to cut thick and heavy fabrics. These premium fabric shears feature ultra-sharp blades ideal for all-purpose cutting tasks. Perfect for a wide range of sewing and quilting tasks, the shears sense blade separation and force the blades back together to cut cleanly through heavy materials. This amazing innovation in scissors technology means that sewing and quilting enthusiasts can expand creative boundaries and work with more adventurous materials than ever before.
The shears are fantastic with denim, canvas, and a host of other heavy-duty fabrics. Here’s another fabulous project available on the Fiskars site; it’s a floor cushion made from a rug! Pricey floor cushions can cost $40 and up, even at discount stores, but you can now make your own from a $5 throw rug and a few everyday supplies. How cool is that?! Here’s a link.
For a chance to WIN a pair of the new 8” Amplify RazorEdge Fabric Shears for yourself, leave a comment on this post by September 29th at midnight PST telling us what current sewing project you’re working on. Limit one entry per visitor, please.

Good Luck and Happy Sewing!
