A Few of My New Favourite Things with Valerie Nesbitt
Classes with Valerie Nesbitt • Educational, G, 01-Dec-2015
What a wonderful range of products help us make our patchwork projects with ease and get a better result.
Here are just a few that Valerie feels are particularly useful:
Extra Fine pins by Clover – these will help you make your patchwork piecing more precise as they don’t distort the fabric at the seam junctions.
Heat Press – a easy way to join your wadding pieces, even polyester, so you can use up all those bits. Saves time on the traditional way of sewing them together, which when Valerie started patchwork was the only way of getting pieces big enough for your quilt.
Unpick with eraser Seamfix – this helps you get rid of those little straggly bits of threads that are left when you unpick.
Best Press – it makes your patchwork block look superb! A light starch style spray that leaves no residue.
Pins with Numbers – helps to keep blocks and rows in order, one for the gadget minded.
More information about all this products you can find in our website.
