For us quilters, our favourite pastime is patchwork, closely followed by collecting fabric and quilting related notions. It’s often joked that it’s two separate hobbies! If you have a quilting friend you’re looking to gift for this festive season, then look no further; we have put together a two part ultimate stocking fillers gift guide. We hope you love our selections as much as we do!
1) Little House Tiny Pins
Stocking fillers are meant to be small, and these Little House pins are truly pint sized and totally adorable. Encased in the tiny jar, 100 glass headed pins come in a range of colours, are nice and sharp and a must have for all quilters. Available in the US here and in the UK here.
2) Zirkel Magnetic Pin Holder
Talking of pins, never loose them again with the Zirkel magnetic pin holder. The magnetic superpowers of this dish will ensure that no pin ever falls on the floor again, they will always be right at hand and easy to find! Available in the US here.
3) Flatter – Ironing Spray
If you want nice smooth, flat fabric, then look no further than this eco friendly product, Flatter, that does exactly what it says on the bottle, it makes your fabric flatter, soft and static free. Made with plant derived and renewable ingredients, with a soft mist sprayer for an even distribution, not to mention a range of gorgeous smells, Flatter is the perfect companion for happy pressing and patchwork.
