Fun Sewing Facts
The first known use of heated metal to "iron" clothes is known to have occurred in China.
Did you Know?
Brand new to the store, we have Applique Magic pins! These pins come in a little container, and are heat resistant for ironing right on them! Stop by and get yourself a set of these cute cheery yellow pins! The tips are GREAT for hands that have some difficulty gripping the traditional round tip pins, because these ones are ridged and have a greater grip surface area.

If you are in the Masterpiece BOM
these are the wide backs we have available for your BOM. They are 118" wide, so you will need about 3.5 yards of which ever you choose. Because this BOM finishes as a 108" square, traditional 108" wide back fabrics will not be wide enough to back this. If you want to piece your back, you will need 10 yards of 44" wide yardage. This fabric is first come first serve, so let us know which you would like.
