New Flannel!

This flannel is especially thick and velvety. It is perfect for any cozy winter garment. The really cool part of this flannel is because the design is woven into the fabric, the reverse side is another unique pattern! Use either side in your pattern, or both to your advantage. You can see it in the photo, the left half is the reverse of the right half of the photo.

Sewing Machine Essentials: Brother NS80e, ND50e, XR37T - Jaret

In this class, you will start with the basics to get to know your machine, and then progress to maintenance, tips and trick from the tech, troubleshooting and finishing with a questions and answer period.
Our favourite part about this class is that although it is geared to be a starting point to learn your new machine, it is not only for beginner sewists. If you want to gain a deeper understanding of your machine, or just have a refresher this class is a great option for you.

If you have purchased your machine at That Sewing Place and would like to register, please contact the shop, and we will take care of registration for you.

Ask the Expert!

Wendy Asked: "I want to embroider on my jacket, but I'm worried it won't be waterproof anymore. Is there any way around this?"

"Great questions Wendy, yes there is: Sulky Stitch'N'Seal. Stitch'N'Seal is a waterproof, iron-on permanent stabilizer that you apply after you are finished embroidering. It seals the back of your stitches so there is no leaking! Check it out HERE." - Lea the Embroidery Expert

Name That Tool?

 Seams Great Hem Tape is a great tool to have in your sewing room.

This product is a stretchy nylon that almost disappears when placed over the edge of your seam. Stretch it out, wrap it over the edge of your fabric and secure the raw edge of your seam so you’ll never have to worry about fraying.

If you don’t have a serger, it’s perfect for those unlined jackets, completely eliminating the need for pinking shears too! It’s perfect for use with thicker fabric as it adds literally zero bulk to the seam. This product is not fusible, but it is perfect for every type of fabric, thick, thin, solid or print, due to it’s almost total transparency when stretched out.

It can even turn your favourite rope trim into piping by just stitching the folded Seams Great to one edge of your rope, slip the Seams Great between your fabrics and sew your one of a kind piping into your seam! This versatile product is one that every sewing room should have!


  • Cover seam edges, hems and facings
  • Reinforce seams, rips and tears
  • Make casings for elastics
  • Does not add bulk
  • Washable and dry cleanable
  • 100% nylon
  • White

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