I’ve got two new quilting products that I just bought and I just love! The first is a light that will make your hand sewing so much easier to see. The second is a travel quilt ruler that I am taking with me to all of my quilt retreats!
Beam N Read LED 6 Deluxe Hands Free Light; Extra Wide & Extra Bright Light from 6 LEDs Plus Clip-on Orange and Red Relaxation Filters
I use this light for absolutely all of my hand quilting and embroidery work. I was having trouble with poor lighting and the need for reading glasses. As I begin to use reading glasses, I have discovered that really good lighting makes all the difference. Without this light I have a trouble seeing to sew and thread needles. No problem threading needles with this Beam and Read LED light!
I can’t wait to take my new Fold-Away Quilters Ruler to my next quilt retreat. I always worry that I am going to bend and break my ruler. I have a chip out of the corner of my old ruler where I banged it on a door as I was bringing in all of m sewing equipment to the retreat. That won’t happen again with my new fold-away ruler! I can’t wait to show my friends at the retreat. I suspect they are all going to want one!
When I saw this tool recently at a quilt show, I had to have it immediately! This Quilt Binding Tool makes that last step of binding a quilt so easy! No more fussing and figuring, trying to measure binding so that you come out with just the right amount for a quilt. This little tool allowed me to finish easily finish my binding and make it look so professional!

When it’s time to put binding on a quilt, I find it a chore to cut the bias binding. First I have to figure out which angle on my ruler to use, then where to place it on the fabric to get started.
Cutting bias binding just got easier with this new bias tool ruler! I tried it and I will never go back to the old way of cutting bias binding. TQM Products makes a ruler that takes the work out of cutting bias binding. Watch the video to see how fast and easy it is! I’ve used the tool for two quilts already and will never bind a quilt without it again! And an added bonus is that it folds in half so I can easily pack it for traveling!
I love going to quilt retreats! But I hate packing for them. It is not an easy task to decide on all of the items to take with me. I don’t want to get there and find out I have forgotten safety pins, or the color thread I need for the project I’m working on. I often am throwing in notions and tools last minute into bags to take with me, only later to find I have to fish around in all of the bags to find the one thing I’m looking for. That’s why when I saw theTutto Tool/Embellishment Holder, I had to have it!
You may have seen my review of my sewing machine carrier also made by Tutto. I love the purple bags I got and suspected I would like this Tool Holder too. I was not disappointed! I have loaded up my Tool Holder with all of the essential notions I need frequently. I’ve decided I’m not going to ever unpack it I’m going to use it as it in my quilting studio. That way, when it’s time to pack, I simply grab the handle and slide it into my sewing machine carrier with my machine.
