What’s on Your To-Do List? 

Are you getting your fall classes planned? Please let me help you checkoff a few items that are sure to be a hit with your customers. 

For over 10 years the Clearly Perfect Angles is still a strong seller. Spending time drawing diagonal lines is never popular and with the “cling” always in position quilters can get more stitching done.  Besides the alignment key right on the product there are other markings making this notion multi-functional.  The quarter-inch guides are helpful in keeping seams accurate; the horizontal 1/4” line helps when adding bindings and the 5/8” line is not only for garment sewing but can be used to create bonus blocks.  All the info is provided on the instructions.  Retail $11.00 (MAP), minimum order 6. 

Hint: have the CPAs sitting by your register and when anyone shows you a project that uses 45 degree angles, simply tell them why this will make their project so much easier….Super easy Add-On Sales!! 

The Clearly Perfect Slotted Trimmers continue to be the top selling notion for many, many shops.  Why, because it is so simple and accurate for trimming half-square triangles, hour-glass blocks and three-piece triangle squares.  And did you know half-square triangles can be easily created using the strip/tube method?  A perfect item to demonstrate!  Retail $31.95 (MAP), minimum order 6. 

Hint: Please contact me if you’d like the link to the video I’ve created just for shop owners.   

By popular demand, larger versions of the Slotted Trimmers are now available in two sizes.  Just like the original pair, there is an A and a B trimmer.  To trim half-inch sizes up to 10 ½” use Trimmer A2.   Trimmer B2 is for trimming full-inch sizes up to 10”.  These are sold individually with a retail price of $26.95 (MAP), minimum order of 4 per size selected. 

There are some fabulous ombre fabrics available and Gentlemen’s Agreement is the perfect pattern to showcase these beauties.  This all-time best seller is spectacular in dark as well as bright colors and everything in-between. The Clearly Perfect Angles is used with the larger quilt AND to create a bonus project!  These patterns retail for $10 with a minimum order of 3.

Hint: creating the bonus blocks with the Clearly Perfect Angles is an easy little demo! 

Spread Your Wings….aren’t we all ready to do thisThe quilt is a contemporary twist on a traditional setting.  The asymmetrical scrappy design features the latest version of All a Twitter from Hoffman Fabrics.  Any focal fabric would be perfect with this pattern, however.  To create additional sales, the pattern highlights the use of the Slotted Trimmers and Clearly Perfect Angles. Retail $10.00, minimum of 3.
