12 Days of Christmas – Day 8

Boy, these days go fast! With only 8 more days to go until Christmas, we’ve bundled together a bunch more items for you today – all on sale for 20% off! Let’s get started with a few of my most favorite things for working with fabric!

Our three sizes of wool pressing mats are a must have. We use them at The Gathering and pretty much everyone who tries them ends up buying one to take home… if they don’t already have one that is! Our mats are sized differently than others out there, and not to mention much, much cheeper. We made them in three sizes that I think make the most sense. Our large mat is made to go on “big board” type ironing boards. They are 20″x 58″ and fit very nicely. I know some people have cut them down to custom fit their ironing surface, so there are many options with the big ones. These wool mats offer even distribution of steam, and releases it back up into the fabric instead of down into your wooden ironing/ big board or table. These mats are nice and thick, and make the most beautiful covers for your “big board” ironing station. They come in 20″×58″, 20″×20″ and 12″x12″. The smaller ones are especially nice if you do not have a big space or you have to travel with it!  

Since we’re talking about all my favorite fabric essentials today, I thought I would show you the starch I prefer to use. Unfortunately, I don’t sell it at this time but you can look for it in the big box grocery stores. Price wise it’s a few dollars a can depending on where you live. If you don’t have time to shop around for it you can also find it on Amazon!

Pressing sticks are also a crucial item in my fabric essentials arsenal (I know I call it a pressing stick but it is really called a Strip Stick)! I know most of you have seen me use them in our American Quilter’s SAL while working on the Hogs for Heroes quilt. If you haven’t, check out our videos on our YouTube Channel! At 20% off it’s a perfect time to pick up a few of these handy tools. They make pressing simple and fun! The larger sizes are perfect for pressing sashing and borders open with ease, and the smaller ones are super convenient for traveling (to Primitive Gatherings quilting retreats, of course)! Sizes available include 8″, 18″, 22″ and 45″. They also make great gifts, so don’t forget to pick one up for a quilter friend or two!

Then there are Magic Pins!!! I can’t believe how much I am In LOVE with these pins! I have so many other types of really nice pins around me yet, I always avoid them and go straight for these! They come in all sizes and thicknesses so please pay attention to those details when ordering. Don’t get me wrong, they are all good. You just don’t want a thick pin while pinning your blocks. Thicker pins do work fine for pinning borders, however!

Then last item on my list today is the coveted Rowenta Steam Station. Simply put, no other iron measures up! I LOVE it and so does everyone else who is using it at The Gathering. Yes, we have them there! I guess that means you should come stay with us…

Ok sorry, back on topic! The Rowenta Steam Stations are very popular which is making them really hard to get right now, even for us. If you’re lucky, you can snag one off Amazon if they are in stock. If not, keep checking back as inventory is constantly changing. Here is the link to find it there…
