    Incredible Threadables

    Posted by on November 7, 2010 | No Comments

    It’s a thread case, it’s a thread rack, it’s dozens of spools of beautiful Rayon No. 40 or metallic embroidery thread and a free embroidery design CD. It’s Madeira’s unique 3-in-1 thread assortment!

    Each spool is neatly organized by color family and stored in its individual thread pocket. Each pocket is identified with the thread color, number and name so spools can be easily removed, replaced and refilled.

    To load and pre-thread up to 12 colors at one time is a snap. Pull all colors needed for your embroidery design. Place polls in thread chambers in color order, working left to right on each side. Pull each thread up from its chamber and through to its corresponding thread guide. For best results, thread should feed from the outside of the spool. Close the doors and stand up the box on its included base to the right of your machine.

    Grasping all threads at once, clip ends to even, using the built-in thread cutters. Thread your machine with the first color and being stitching. Repeat for each color. Thread should feed from the right side of the box, up and through the guides, and directly into your machine. Simply rotate the box to access the second set of chambers on the reverse side. Guides can be thread from both sides if you are using both sides of the box.

    Choose from two Rayon spool sizes and one Metallic:
    Rayon 220 Box: 80 spools of 220yd/ 200m rayon embroidery thread plus 2 spools of 1650yd/ 1500m Bobbinfil bobbin thread.
    Rayon 1100 Box: 40 spools of 1100yd/ 1000m rayon embroidery thread plus 2 spools of 1650yd/ 1500m Bobbinfil bobbin thread.
    Glamour Metallic Box: 40 spools of 220yd/200m metallic embroidery thread plus 2 spools of 1650yd/ 1500m Bobbinfil bobbin thread

    AND, each Incredible Threadable contains spools, a customized embroidery design CD from Anita Goodesign with 42 customized designs, a complete printed color card, and a handy carry strap.

    All this for only $99.95 plus shipping!

    It’s never too early to start plan your holiday wish list, so don’t forget to add this incredible deal to yours!

    Fabric Marking Pens

    Posted by on October 23, 2010 | No Comments

    With fall here, we are knee-deep in the crafting and sewing season and probably didn’t realize it. It starts with costumes, moves to ornaments and then to handmade Valentines. This year, give your ornaments and Valentines a personal touch using Fabric Marking Pens.

    Nancy’s Notions carries Standard Dual Tip Fabric Markers (FDMB6) with an MSRP of $24.00. These marking pens are great; each acid-free marker has two tips. The bullet tip is ideal for adding names and dates to embroidered ornaments as well as other fine details. The brush tip works great to color in embroidery outlines like a coloring book image. These are perfect to use when you want to bring the kids into the annual ornament making!

    These have been in my sewing room for quite some time and get used frequently. Check them out, there’s still time to get them to use for your ornament this year.
