What's New?


Diane's Queen Bee Cardigan

Diane used Holographic HTV to create this wicked Faux Rhinestone design!

This is a really cool way to spice up a garment, and so easy! The HTV sparkles just like rhinestones, but is totally flat, so you don't even feel it there!

Ask the Expert!

We got a great questions on repairs. As a Mom - or Dad, how many of you have had to fix an item of clothing? It can be really hard to fix an item and have it be durable after, or look the way you want it too, and even more rare to have both!

Hailey asked: "Hey Seam Team! I have an awkward tear in my kids' clothing. It is a woven fabric. How do I fix it so it's solid, and looks good too?"

"Hello Hailey! I totally understand the struggle. It really depends on the garment, and what kind of a tear. There are so many great ways to fix a tear, depending on what machine you have and how you want it to look.

First for a direct and easy fix, use a fusible interfacing like PRESTO on the inside of the tear to stabilize it. Then stitch over top with zig-zag, satin stitch or straight stitch even for a solid finish.

My Personal favourite is to embroider a patch, I usually use twilly, and you can stitch it onto the garment. It is a fun way to turn that tear into a happy accident, and personalize it at the same time.

Another fun way to embellish and mend at the same time is to use a contrasting thread, a piece of fun fabric places behind the tear, or after stabilizing the fabric, you could place an embroidered applique on. If you want to get really fancy, you can even add some rhinestones on there!

Name That Tool?

This time its a double feature, because these two tools work so well together, and are both must-haves for embroidery.

Have you heard of Alligator Clamps and Button Clips? Not to be mistaken with medieval torture, they are absolutely AMAZING when assembling free standing lace projects.

You can use the Alligator clamps to pull through the little knobs on your project, and then use the button clips to hold them while you continue assembling the projects.

The button clips hold the pulled-through knobs perfectly in place while assembling!

Until we have an opportunity to see you again! Stay healthy, stay safe!
