12 Days of Christmas Wishing – December 12, 2012



“On the Twelfth Day of Wishing,




(OK folks, we are switching tunes, let’s see if you recognize it.)

He is running down the road

Trying to loosen his load,
He’s got vacation on his mind
Wants to go golfing,
Catch the wave surfing,
Paint Rudolf tagging ‘long behind.
Take it easy, take it easy.
Don’t let the work of the Christmas season
Drive you crazy.

If you need some quick gifts for your children, grandchildren, nieces, and nephews, these pillowcase kits may be just the answer.

This marks the end of our 12 Days of Christmas Wishing.  Once again, I would like to give you our holiday wish for the next 12 days:

Every stitch not be skipped,
Every needle stays straight,
That the time spent is pleasant,
And not staying up late.
May your presents be sewn,
With a pattern that’s right,
For all those you love,
To keep warm ‘n cozy at night.

Warm wishes for a wonderful Christmas and holiday season,

Linda Goh and All the Staff

12 Days Christmas Wishing – December 11, 2012


“On the Eleventh Day of Wishing,




I’d love a nice soak in the tub.”

And having a fragrant, special bar of soap can make that experience more special.

These soaps are handmade by Tree Frog from Prince Rupert, BC.  Their mouth-watering scents and eye-catching colors have been achieved with the use of natural clays, botanicals, and wholesome additives.  We have brought in various scents from their silk line, that are made with wild Tussah Noil silk fiber, which gives the soap a lavish silky lather of long lasting bubbles.  


  • Bar sizes are approximately 170 gm.
  • $10.49 each.

Six of the scents are found on our webstore at:


Squeaky clean on the 11th,


12 Days of Christmas Wishing – December 9, 2012

“On the Ninth Day of Wishing,


I’d love a helping hand.”

Sounds like you could use the handy-dandy Wonder Clips!


  • Clip and hold, or clip and sew right where you need it.
  • Clips open wide for multiple layers.
  • They have plastic teeth, so they won’t harm the fabric. 
  • Flat base for easy feeding to the presser foot.
  • Seam allowance markings on base of clip.
  • Great alternative to pins, especially when working with vinyls, piles, and heavyweight fabrics.
  • Holds layered sections of sewing projects such as handle connectors to handbags, piping, etc. without distortion.
  • Holds quilt binding while machine or hand sewing.
  • Works well with sergers.
  • Easy to see on your work and easy to find when dropped to the floor. 
  • $7.99 for 10 clips, $36.99 for 50 clips

Here’s a video about them:

12 Days of Christmas Wishing – December 6, 2012

“On the Sixth Day of Wishing,

 (OK folks, we are switching tunes for today to “I want a Hippotamus for Christmas”.)

I want a table runner out for Christmas
One that I can sew up nice and quick
A white, brown, green, – one as red as my nose
I want a table runner, so I’ll have a few of those.

 I want a table runner out for Christmas
I don’t think Santa Claus will mind, do you?
If he doesn’t have to use our dirty chimney flue,
Just send him to A-C-Q, that’s the easy thing to do.

Easy it is.  First we have the Centerfold Table Runner.  In our store sample, we used the main center fabric with a brown background (that’s right, those ornaments are not appliquéd, they are the printed fabric ). 


But wait, if brown isn’t your style, we also have white, red, and green.  They will all look wonderful.




  • Kit includes the pattern, and fabric for the top, binding, and backing. 
  • Finishes at approximately 11.75” X 41”.
  • $19.99.

Then we have the Rectangle Rumba (a most appropriate rumba when your nose is red).  Our store sample was sewn with red and the black feature print. 


However, continuing with the spirit of choices, we also have green and the black feature print, which would also be beautiful.


  • Kit includes the pattern, and fabric for the top, binding, and backing.
  • Finishes at approximately 20” X 38”.

12 Days of Christmas Wishing – December 5

“On the Fifth Day of Wishing,

 I’d love a thread stand.”

It’s wonderful when you can find a functional item that is also beautiful.  And for those of you who have discovered that using cones of thread for piecing is much less expensive than spools, this item may be for you.


  • These thread stands can be used for cones, or spools that require some taming distance (i.e., invisible thread).
  • 3 different styles of flowers.
  • Made from recycled steel.  The stand won’t topple over, creep across the table, or break.
  • Finished with a heavy automotive clearcoat.
  • Has a place for bobbins.
  • Handmade, so each is unique.
  • Comes assembled.
  • Stands from 11.5” to 13.5” tall.
  • Will outlast all the cones you will ever use.
  • $56.99

12 Days of Christmas Wishing – December 4, 2012

“On the Fourth Day of Wishing,

 I’d like more control over my iron’s cord.”

Okay, so it is the small things in life that can make us happy too, and we feature them as well.  Today’s small, but brilliant, gadget is the Cordminder.


  • Clamps on to any surface that is not more than ¾” wide.
  • Arm swivels to allow free movement.
  • Place it on your surface where you find it will best allow your cord to roll back and forth freely.  This keeps it out of the way, so you are not constantly moving it.
  • Clip is provided to give counter balance and weight to the cord, as well as a stop, should it be needed.
  • Works for any appliance cord – not just irons.  How about those glue guns, power tools, or kitchen appliance cords which are in the way?
  • $16.49

We use this notion on both the ironing surfaces in our classroom, so you can come in and see them in action if you like.  I’ve posted a picture below of one attached to an ironing board, and you can see how it keeps the cord high and away from the project.  Personally I love how it keeps our classroom iron cords away from the front of our boards where people can trip on them.  Safety first, you know!
