COVID-19 has definitely affected deliveries here at Constantine Quilts. At the beginning of May this fantastic class was released by Bethanne Nemesh and I immediately ordered a large supply of her rulers and a few copies of this new DVD for my Australian customers. You can also simply take her online class from Bethanne’s website – but if you are like me, I love having my own copy so that I can watch on my computer or DVD player at any time without using up my precious internet.
So 2 months later – I have finally received this long awaited box. First job was to unpack and fill all the orders of Garden Lines rulers that have been very patiently waiting for these to arrive. Next is to update the website (today) with the new DVD.
Learn all the tips and tricks to bring free motion yarn couching to life on your domestic sewing machine or longarm. Bethanne spends equal time demonstrating this art form on both styles of machines with a deep discussion of types of yarn, stabilizers, and techniques to use yarn couching in your creative life. Begin class learning to manipulate the yarn as classic free motion quilting. Learn stitches and textures that will help you explore more advanced projects, such as replacing appliqué on quilts. Advance to using yarn couching as a pictorial art form. Two class projects are demonstrated, including a large scale flower with appliqué bee as well as the Meadow Tweet pattern of a daisy with bluebird, which is fully demonstrated and shown on a quilt, jacket, purse, and framed art.
Sale price for this shipment only is $75 (normally $86).
I have also got some fun sewing items arriving this past week that were ordered early April and are finally getting here…

- 1x 80pc Sewing Thread Bobbin Holder Clamp Clips Bobbin Buddies
Only $25 a packet
are fantastic to have on hand to keep your filled bobbins with the spool or cone of thread to keep them matched. I know there are times that I simply can’t tell which weight thread is in the bobbin if I have the same colours in different weights. This little clip is the answer to keep them together to avoid confusion!
Only $15 for a packet of 20 clips!
Another great find was some coloured pearl head pins that are 55mm long and strong to use when pinning quilts onto your canvas on a quilting machine. These come in boxes of 144 this time for only $16.50
