Get started on your next quilt project with the addition of invaluable quilting notions to your sewing room. Sewing and quilting notions are the essential tools that quilters use to make beautiful quilts, table runners, and other projects.
Improve your fabric preparation skills with some of the most important tools a quilter can own: Creative Grids Rulers. These wonderful rulers include innovative features like gripping dots for precision, accuracy, and confidence when cutting your fabric to the perfect size and shape. They are available at Shabby Fabrics in a myriad of sizes and shapes, making them versatile and ideal for all kinds of quilting projects.
When getting started on a new quilt project, as we know, precision is key. Don't cut your new Quilt Fabrics with just any blades! Rotary cutters ensure accuracy by freeing your cutting movements and allowing you to change direction quickly and easily. A cutting implement is only as good as its blade, so it's important to have replacement blades handy to avoid fraying fabric or mis-cuts. Among these treasured tools are ones that are perhaps overlooked but truly indispensable: Rotary cutting mats, patchwork pins, and scissors to cut their fabric. Each serves a different need and are essential items in any sewing room.
When it comes to putting your masterpiece together, be sure to find the perfectly colored thread from our selection of Quilting Thread. We highly recommend two brands of: Aurifil and Sulky. Each is 50 wt, 100% cotton, beautifully colored to be fade resistant, and strong enough to last years in your most cherished family heirloom! View all of our 50 wt cotton thread here.
If your love lies with the beautiful Appliqué Designs and Patterns achieved with this popular technique, there are a few must-have tools that will change the way you view sewing! Using the Wafer Lightbox in conjunction with Appliqué Pressing Mats results in a wonderful combination allowing you to pre-assemble their shapes before moving them onto the background of your quilt. Reliable Pressing & Ironing Tools like the Wool Pressing Mat, Oliso Iron, and Panasonic Iron allow you to achieve crisp edges along your folds, and accurate cuts without any wrinkles to worry about. Appliqué mats, Applique Tools, fusible webbing such as Heat n Bond, and Hand Embroidery Needles help to create beautiful appliqué designs, lifting even the most simple project to another level of craftsmanship.
Clover notions are popular among quilters for their quality and versatility. They offer a range of staple quilting tools, including Pins, Seam Rippers, and Marking Pens, pencil and chalk.
Batting is used as a thick, soft layer between the top and bottom layers of their quilts, giving them their plush feel! Be sure to find the right batting for your project for the perfect finish.
As we all know, a pin cushion can be a lifesaver when in the middle of a challenging quilting project. The selection of pin caddies at Shabby Fabrics include Magnetic holders for an extra secure grip, and more traditional holders. Be sure to check out the gorgeous and fun Pin Cushion Patterns and Pin Cushion Kits in our collection that allow you to create a useful work of art that you can enjoy every day that you quilt! Ground Walnut Shells are sometimes added to a pin cushion to create a heavier weight so the pin cushion stays in place while pins are removed and returned. We even offer Ground Walnut Shells with Lavender which contain real lavender buds and lavender oil imported from France.
From Creative Grids Rulers and rotary cutters to batting and fusible webbing, these tools make it easier for quilters to create precise cuts, beautiful applique designs, and seamless finishes. Whether you're a beginner or an experienced quilter, having the right tools and notions will make quilting more enjoyable and result in quilts you'll be proud to display.
