The Marking Tools We Use When Quilting

BONUS TIDBIT TIP: How To Easily Create Multiple Stencils with Quilt Paper

This week we’re talking marking tools. I know that we all have our favorites, and we’re sure that we might not mention the one that is your favorite. We’ve always been of the attitude “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”. Sometimes we try a new product and then go right back to what we’ve always used. I think it’s a comfort thing!

It’s also that time of year when we have to go through and inventory what’s in the shop and we’ve decided that some of it needs to gooooo! You know what that means – you get a deal!!! For the next couple of weeks, we’re offering a selection of kits that will be marked 25% off for the week (so from Tuesday to Monday night). Don’t forget – once they are gone, they are gone!

See ya next week!
