The Gypsy Quilter!

We are featuring The Gypsy Quilter! She has a lot of handy tools and helpful products. From pressing mats to pins to clappers you are sure to find what you need!
Wool Pressing Mats!
We purchased some neat Gypsy Quilter Wool Mat Pressing Kits ~ with pressing mats, thimbles, cool pins and Bitty Buddies ~ because we thought they'd make great gifts.

Well . . .Imagine our surprise when we opened the box. . .
the kits include a Wool Carrying Case!

AND THEN . . .
We decided to add a Schmetz ABC Needle Guide and a package of Universal needles to our kit. The perfect gift for you or a quilter you know!

Now Look Closely . . .

The only difference between the kits is the color of the Cool Pins. Choose Bohemian Blue or Fortunate Fuchsia!
Very Limited Quantities ~ Don't Miss This!

We also have just plain and simple Wool Pressing Mats. Each are 17" x 17". These come in handing at quilting retreats is what we hear!
Design Walls and Pins!
Audition your quilt blocks on the Center Stage Design Wall! At 60 in x 72in it will showcase most throw size quilts or the centers of larger quilts before the borders are added. Designed with you in mind, six foot is the standard reach for most quilters so the entire surface can be utilized. Hang this felt Design Wall however and wherever you choose. Cotton blocks cling to the felt until you are happy with the design and ready to sew. Use a lint roller to remove stray threads when needed.

We have this in White and Grey.
These pins are heat resistant up to 350 degrees Fahrenheit so you can iron over them without melting the tip of the pin or burning your finger.

The large pinheads are easy to grasp and manipulate - perfect for all ages. And since the tips of the Cool Pins are colorful, they are easy to spot and remove - no pins left behind. Cool pins are sharp and fine. At just .5 mm, they will not leave holes in your finished project. 50 pins come in a reusable storage box.
The Original Gypsy Gripper is designed with two suction cups that attach to any smooth ruler surface. The Gripper ensures that even pressure is applied to the cutting surface so you can relax and rest your hand comfortably over the handle. Since no death grip is required, this tool is recommended for anyone with hand issues such as arthritis and carpel tunnel. Your hand is always away from the rotary cutter so your fingers are out of harm’s way, making this a must have for any new or young quilter!

Note: The ruler must be at least 4in wide and 12.5in long - excluding the hang hole - to be effective.
You simply apply The Gypsy Quilter Ruler Dots to the underside of your ruler- and slip no more! Contains 24 large grips and 24 small grips per package.

We personally use these on all of our rulers in store and let me tell you, we have no more ruler slipping! These are a life saver!
Other Helpful Tools!
These Machine Quilting gloves versatile and perfect for any quilting situation! They are breathable and comfortable. Gain extra precision control where you need it most with grip dots on the fingertips. Or flip the glove around for maximum control with grip dots all over the palm and fingers.
Protect your finger tips from iron burns with the Gypsy Quilter silicone Heat-Resistant Thimble, now in purple! Three sizes of thimbles nested together. To be used on three fingers to help protect from heat.

Official Description: Sit comfortably for hours while quilting, sewing, reading, driving, and more. The Gypsy Sit Upon Can be used on hard or soft chairs, recliners, car seats or anywhere you sit for an extended period of time. This softly inflated flexible disc acts like an exercise ball - preventing fatigue and reducing pressure on the tailbone. Relieve lower back pain, strengthen your core muscles, and improve your posture the easy way. The nubby texture allows cool air flow and promotes improved blood circulation. Durable purple rubberized material remains soft and pliable. One size fits all!

Notes from Marsha: Not only is this good for people who sew, it works great for any person who sits a lot or uses a wheelchair. The first time I put this on my sewing chair, I immediately felt relief in my lower back. The side shown is the side with the highest bumps. Sort of like those bumps on the massage sandals of the 1970s. The other side has "barely" bumps.
