9/7/17 - Last chance to sign up for the Fall Mystery Quilt!
~Notion of the week~Wonder ClipsClover Wonder Clips are a great alternative to pins, especially when working with heavy weight fabrics or when sewing the binding onto your quilt. These clips can hold layered sections of sewing projects such as handle connectors to handbags and piping without distortion. The base of each clip is flat for easy feeding to the presser foot. Wonder Clips also have convenient seam allowance makings for 3/16", 3/8" and 1/4" seams.
