I’ve been waiting very impatiently for the following book to arrive & it has not let me down.
Create your own DREAM FEATHERS by Peggy Holt
Use Peggy's original continuous line designs as the starting point to create unique quilting patterns-feathers, butterflies, hearts, paisleys, and more. Three concepts underlie her approach to free-motion quilting-dream feathers, standard feathers, and 10 full-size base shapes. Develop these for single line designs, furls, flourishes, borders, and medallions. Her designs work for longarm, midarm, or domestic quilting, and hand quilters can stitch them, too. Creative quilters will be able to adapt her how-to drawings as complete, ready-to-use designs. She includes exercises to develop free-motion skills and marking methods. This book is a comprehensive approach to continuous line design and quilting design creativity.

Read comments from our field testing below!
“As a professional long arm quilter for many years, with several prestigious awards, I have found this thread pic extremely useful in my trade and this product will fit equally well into the projects of the domestic and hand quilters around the world. This pic slips between the threads of the fabric so easily and leaves no trace of ever being there.
Remember that dark-colored thread that shows up under a light-colored fabric? No more worry, you can retrieve it, and pull it out effortlessly. What about that thread stuck to the batting which shows up under the backing or in the middle of a block, not seen until you finish the quilt? No problem, use the pic to retrieve it. Works every time, without fail!
I can recommend this tool with confidence, as well as the other Clover products such as the straight awl, seam ripper, and white markers. The best quilting tools are made by Clover, experience the difference for yourself!”

Stuffing Tool by Clover
Easy to use batting stuffing stick for Trapunto Quilting & Doll Making.
Convenient for small sections with a flat and easy to hold handle that gives stability in pushing and makes detailed work easier because the stick-tip is angled and wider for easy stuffing.
Self Threading Needles by Clover
Self-threading needles, have a slot for the thread, rather than an eye to make threading easier. Sometimes called 'cheater' needles, the Clover Self Threading Needles are threaded simply by placing the thread above the eye of the needle and pulling down.
Wonderful Tool for Machine Quilting
Self threading needles are handy for people who have difficulty threading a needle but they’re also a wonderful tool for quilters and should be in every machine quilters tool kit.
What Should You Do With Thread Tails?
Many quilters anchor their starting and stopping stitches by sewing several stitches in one place or backstitching, then clipping off the thread tails. These methods of starting and finishing your quilting may leave a noticeable bump that can be unsightly.
Another choice is to tie off and bury the threads. Hiding your quilting threads can be an annoying task but self-threading needles will speed up the process and the result is much more professional looking.
Which way you choose to deal with your thread ends will depend on how much your customer is prepared to pay for this service, the purpose of the quilt and how it looks.
The Clover Self-Threading Needles are available in a package of five assorted sizes.
Flexible Curve Ruler - 46cm/18" long
Covered with clear transparent plastic. One side is fully divided into millimetres. The other side is graduated into inches.
Quilting - Ideal for making quilted pictures with curved lines. Also for designing curved quilting designs. Width of ruler is sufficient to be used against the foot of most commercial longarm machines.
Decoration - Appliques with graceful curved lines are easy made. Measured or random curved lines can be marked for sequins, beading, pearls or ribbon trims.
Dressmaking - Ideal for duplication rounded shapes on patterns or for creating design lines (eg. armholes, necklines or hip curves etc) Patterns can be easily changed by adding design lines or changing a straight line to a curved one. The width of the ruler corresponds to the seam allowance.
