Misty Fuse – Fuse with Advantage

For a long time now, we have had “Misty Fuse” available here at Hamels. Rolls and packages of this  ultra-fine fusible web have languished on the shelf and not too many quilters have discovered it. I took some home last week and started working with it and my, my, what a great fusible web it is!

Misty Fuse is an environmentally friendly product and the ultra-fine web stays soft and pliable in appliqués on quilting projects without adding bulk. It’s easy to handle, solvent-free and does not gum up your needle as you sew with it.

Although there is no paper attached to Misty Fuse when you purchase it, the Goddess sheet makes application a breeze and you can barely feel it on the backside of your appliqué pieces.

Here’s a video from the folks at Misty Fuse demonstrating how it works.

To order Misty Fuse and the Goddess Sheet  please look for them on the Hamels website, or come visit us in the store.

Sew and Tell….Doris

Doris F 9 patch

Doris came into the shop and brought her very lovely “Nine Patch Nostalgia” quilt. This quilt is reversible as Doris used her leftovers to piece the back together and it looks as good as the front. She had long arm quilter Beatrice of Pumpkin Patch Patterns & Long Arm Quilting quilt it for her with special instructions to leave the outside border open for special hand quilting and antique buttons to be sewn all around the outer edge.

Sewing Machine Needles – What Size Do you Need?

Now that we are well into September, many sewers and quilters are excited about sewing their projects. Having the correct machine needle for your project is SO important and we want to share a short video with you about sewing machine needles.



At the store, we feature Schmetz sewing machine needles. Here are three quick things to remember when considering machine needles:

1. Match the size of the needle to the thread you are sewing with for best results.

2. The larger number, the larger the needle.

3. A new needle is the easiest and cheapest way to improve stitches.
