Tuesday Tip….Liquid Fabric Stabilizer called “Terial Magic”

Last week we received a case of a product here in the shop called Terial Magic. After unpacking the box and putting them on the shelf, I decided to investigate what this eco friendly liquid is used for. Watch the video below explaining how to use Terial Magic:

Tuesday Tip: Triangle Square Up Ruler

One of our most favourite rulers here at Hamel’s is Quilt in a Day’s Triangle Square Up Ruler. When students take our Beginner Sampler class, this ruler is required. Think about all the quilt blocks out there that require half square triangles!

The 6 1/2 Triangle Square Up Ruler makes perfect half triangle squares and quarter triangle squares in sizes up to 6 1/2″. Fully illustrated and detailed instructions are included when you purchase this ruler. The ruler is marked in two colors for easy reading. Convenient 1/8″, 1/4″, 1/2″ and 1″ lines for precise measuring. The ruler is made of heavy gauge acrylic and is laser precise.

Want even a bigger ruler? Well, you can also special order the 9 1/2” version of this ruler.

SKU: 2023QD

Here’s a video demonstration with Eleanor Burns of “Quilt in a Day” using this ruler to create perfect half square triangles. Even tho this video is a “few years old”, the technique still works today and we recommend it.

Happy stitching!

Thrifty Thursday….Misty Fuse

Today’s *Thrifty Thursday item is our 20″ wide Mistyfuse. Use paper-less Mistyfuse for all weights of fabric from velvets and cottons to delicate tulles and organzas. It’s a dream to work with—it handles well, is incredibly sheer, doesn’t add bulk and bonds firmly once cooled. Since there is no added adhesive, it will never gum up your scissors or quilting needles.  Mistyfuse White is perfect for fusing all colors, weights and types of fabric.

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.

Our regular price is $4.98 per metre. Our Thrifty Thursday price is only $2.50 per metre. Click HERE to order yours today!
