This and That Tuesday…

Yup…it’s THAT kind of day!! 

First off, remember Greer and her Press and Seal Experiment?  She needed to transfer her printing onto dark fabric and she heard about Press ‘n Seal by Glad making that job easier…


…so she tried it out!

Last week she was busy stitching…and she reported that it was easy to transfer the printing onto the Glad product!  Using a hoop over her work and the Press and Seal, she was able to hold her work taut as she stitched away on it…Greer reported that it was easy to needle through it…


The final test was the removal of the Press ‘n Seal.  WELL…Greer said it worked great.  She cut the wrap, using scissors, right up to the printing and then gently pulled it off…and it WORKED!!  No pulled threads! Greer gave it a passing grade (two Quilter’s Thumbs UP) and she will definitely use it again!

Now if you are wondering WHAT Press ‘n Seal can do,  you need to see this VIDEO…it’s worth it just to use it as a wrap!  It looks amazing!!  Throw it into your sewing bag and you will never have any more coffee spills, you can peel your orange BEFORE you leave, wrap it with this miracle product and throw it in with your fabric…YUP…no stains!  AS IF YOU WOULD DO THIS!  See the video…but keep all food out of your fabric tote!!  I don’t care what Bob(the Press ‘n Seal guy) says…fabric is FABRIC!!  NO FOOD in with your fabric!  I think Bob needs to make a NEW and IMPROVED video where he will be stitching with needle and thread and of course Press and Seal!!

The LAST thing I want to share with you is this quilt that I showed you yesterday…
