Are Quality tools very important in your quilt studio?

EZ Rip n Grip

Cindy’s husband & mine often tell us “you’re only as good as your tools” and they are right.  Quality tools are very important in any profession…especially in the world of sewing and quilting.   We are all faced with the dreaded task of removing stitches and seams from our work. Cindy has come up with the perfect tool to make this much easier.

She teamed up with Famore because of their attention to detail and their quality tools.  They are the creator of some of the favourite tools in my sewing box.

The EZ RipNGrip is two tools in one.  A fine point seam ripper is paired with the best pair of tweezers in the world.  They are joined at the base with a pivot which allows the two tools to spin independently and hold in any direction.  The tweezer blades are perfectly matched so they can grab and hold even the finest of threads.  This measures 3 1/4″ closed, 6″ open and about 1/2″ in depth.

The EZ RipNGrip comes with a blue case so it can be protected no matter where  you travel.

At only $36 each, these are a must have in your quilt studio!

Watch Cindy demonstrate how great it is using these to reverse sew!

We also have a limited supply of the very popular

6″ EZ snip hook blade scissors

Price: $34.20

These thread snips have a hook on one blade tip making it easier to pull up just the right threads needing cut. They are made of thru hardened high grade steel with superior rust & corrosion resistance.

Perfect to use when quilting with your longarm quilting machine or domestic sewing machine.


I have been quite pre-occupied for the last few weeks working on a very special event! It has now been completed and was very successful to all involved. The Pink Page Party was designed to both raise awareness and funds for the McGrath Foundation here in Australia. McGrath Breast Care Nurses help individuals and their families affected by breast cancer by providing invaluable physical, psychological and emotional support, from the time of diagnosis and throughout treatment.
Many supporters have made this possible and I’d like to publicly acknowledge them all again in appreciation.
It costs around $140,000 to fund a McGrath Breast Care Nurse for a year including training and development and they aim to fund 151 McGrath Breast Care Nurses in communities right across Australia, who have supported almost 90,000 families since 2005.
Total funds to be deposited/donated to this point is $5552 which is simply amazing. My Fundraiser page at McGrath Foundation is still open for further donations until 29th June if anyone would like to extend this total.
Together, we can make a difference!
Thank you so much for your support.
Until next time – happy quilting!
