Here are my new treasures:
|I got some fabric. The prices were so much better then the prices in the Edmonton Quilt shops! I may never shop in Edmonton again - for fabric.|
|Ha ha, this says Sew or Die. It was a free tattoo at the till. I'll wear it at my next retreat!|
|I got these two glues, the Unique Stitch is a permanent glue that is supposed to never get hard or gum up your needle. I am looking forward to trying it out.|
|This pointer is a light you wear on your finger to illuminate your work - like when you are paper piecing or seam ripping.|
|This lets you pick up single pieces of fabric with ease when you have stacks of little cut squares or whatever. Hee hee, I like gadgets and tools!|
|This is fun, its a finger cutter. I tried to get a side picture, but the sheen from the packaging made it impossible. There is a little rotary cutter on the end that lets you cut around applique or free cut your fabric.|
|This mat cleaner you just drag across your mat to pull out all the fibres that are stuck in there. It is supposed to make your mat and your rotary blades last longer.|
I really only want the giraffes, blue/green elephants and the blue owls.
The other fabric I found that I thought was lovely is again from Timeless Treasures - the line is called Shimmer.
It is shiny! Love it!!
This one I have found in some other US online shops - it would be cheaper for me to order from the US, plus I would get it right away where as Quiltessential told me they are getting this one but it will be 6 months. To support local would be good though. Hmm decisions. Quiltessential fabric is up to 16 dollars a meter which is three inches longer then a yard. It's not like I need it right away. ha ha I do have enough fabric here to last the rest of my life - just ask Mr Hunter, he will tell you.
What do you think - keep it local, or save my pennies and shop online?
