FAB! Giveaway Day: Two very cool sewing tools!
Today's another FAB! review & giveaway day, and I'm excited to share these very clever products from Sew Very Smooth.
Now, I recently got a Sew Smooth table which I'm jazzed about. I sew on my dining room table and the Sew Smooth table is a great extension table that gives me a lot of room to maneuver when quilting. But I have to say, fabric doesn't slide on it quite as easily as I'd hoped. Luckily, I met LuAnn and Steve Tippets at their booth at the Charlotte Quilter's show a few weeks ago.
They run the Sew Very Smooth business and were kind enough to send me some of their great products to try. See, they sell these little wonder pots of polish that totally impressed me. Simply wipe the polish cream on the extension table and the bed of the sewing machine, buff off, and wha-la! The surface is super smooth and slick and fabric slips and slides along the surface like satin. Trust me, it makes a BIG difference!
The other nifty little gadget Steve and LuAnn showed me was their new seam guide. Now, this I love.
I used to put a piece of masking tape on my machine bed to mark different seam allowances (like a half inch) when sewing but we all know that's not great. It's too thin and doesn't keep the fabric in line. It's way too easy to get off track. Apparently other people have this issue too so they came up with this super smart seam guide.
It sticks tightly on to your Sew Steady table but is completely removable and repositionable. Simply press on one end and it pops up, ready for you to move it. Now, you can place your fabric right up against the guide and your seams will be perfect.
This is a big help for me. I am used to sewing with a quarter inch foot on my machine that has the little wall on the right so it keeps me in check and essentially, the seam guide does the same thing. I love it. Although this was made to use on an extension table, I am sure you could use one on a drop-in sewing table too.
I think both of these products are FAB! which is why I am excited to be giving away 3 sets of polish and seam guides today! Yay!
A big thanks to Steve and LuAnn for sharing their fabulous products with me and with y'all! It's fun when you find a great product that delivers and I have to say, these get gold stars.
