Fingertip Stiletto
I like to call this my little Hexie Helper!   Click HERE for a short video.

This tool is awesome for preparing Applique or English Paper Piecig with starch and freezer
paper as you may have seen on my blog.  It saves your fingertip and fingernail from a hot iron.  It
becomes a natural extension of your finger, helping you handle your pieces.  It is adjustable to fit
your finger.  Click HERE.

It also works great to offer finger protection when using sewing machinery by keeping your
fingertip away from moving needles / parts.

This is a notion you can
not do without!  
Also check out the video on the Home page for additional information on how I use it.

Premium Freezer Paper  
This is the perfect paper to use with Missie's technique of Starch Basting English
Paper Piecing and Applique shapes.  See video on the HOME page.

It makes a huge difference in the quality of shapes and makes my technique
easy and precise.  It does not shrink and distort like other freezer papers so you can
use your shapes over and over...more than 20 times!

This Premium Freezer Paper runs through Ink Jet printers wonderfully and makes
nice thick shapes when double layered for EPP.  

This is the Freezer Paper I use because it works
so nicely!

Long Arm Stapler for Wool Applique

Use this stapler to hold wool applique pieces in
place rather than pins that tend to catch on your
thread.  Works great!  I also use washable glue
stick or Soft Fuse along with the staples.  No more
loose pieces!

Twist Ease  Protect your nails and
knuckles when twisting the Morgan
Hoop tighter.  Really gets those
hoops tight!!  A life saver!

be sent.

Choose a marking pencil to go along with the Sandboard-
