Only a few weeks seem to have passed since our last Festa del Ricamo
, not he first weekend of June.. instead here we are, with August about to begin and we wonder how many of you will be packing their suitcases for the holidays!
Since in those suitcases there'll surely be a little room for your current creative projects, don't forget to carry those lifesaving sewing cases, in case a button should come off from that lovely dress you already planned to wear on the beach or, even worse, in case the hem of your trousers should play tricks on you, right when you're about to ware them!!
product range, historical German brand for creative sewing, includes these items too.. just perfect for your "holiday suitcase":
- Stitch plait Sew-it-all thread
- Stitch plait top stitch
- Hemming Web HT3
At unbeatable prices, thanks to the agreement Casa Cenina and Gütermann
reached precisely for the Festa del Ricamo
Sure, for all of you patchwork addicted, the name Gütermann
evokes the fantastic, waxed cotton, quilting threads
, so smooth they're the ideal threads for any quilting and appliqué project.
Perfect for hand quilting, but great for machine quilting as well (take my word on this, as I've been using these threads for years on my Bernina and, I confess, I do only machine quilting and appliqué!!), if you use it only for sewing the front of the project - not inside the crochet bobbin..
The colour palette (not less than 50 colours!) is just perfect for any purpose, and I'm sure you'll be surprised by these wonderful threads
Then since patchwork is not all about quilting, but a patient work of fabric cuts juxtaposition, the best thread is by no means a strong one, that will guarantee you the maximum of sturdiness, as we all know any quilt is made to last for years and years to come, whether it's going to reside on your bed, sofa or as a decorative wall hanging..
Gütermann answer to this necessity is called Creativ Extra Strong
, great for patchwork sewings, that will stay hidden on the back of your work, holding on firmly - and never to unsew.
Made of soft 100% polyester, with a high breaking point, this thread can undergo even the strongest metallic stress - including the precise ironing necessary to get all those creases out of our fabrics and blocks - and you'll need just a couple of spools, in its neutral colours 111
, to make your "sewing life" way easier with all the stars, blocks, log cabin, .. and etcetera ad infinitum
Last but not least, for all of you who will take advantage of a few days off to sort out your stash and creative wonders, don't miss these metal boxes with their vintage look, at a great price, that Gütermann
created in a special edition, taking inspiration from motives of their old advertising campaigns:
