Sewing Box Hero

As a Quilter and Sewer I know how important it is to find products that make my projects better and easier without blowing my budget or potentially damaging my work by using something complicated or harsh on fabrics.  It is a balancing act when shopping for supplies, tools, and accessories – maintain the quality of the finished piece, save money, and saving time.  For a new tool to get a place in my already crowded sewing kit it has to meet all three of those things.

One my favorite items is the temporary adhesive Lapel Stick, it not only meets my 3 sewing kit entry requirements but also adds a fourth – it has other applications around the house and for my whole family.  Lapel Stick is a “must-have” notion for anyone who quilts, sews, or does crafts as it removes the need for pins, toxic sprays or glues and protects their machines and fabric.  It is the only one I have found that is 100% non-toxic, safe to use on all fabrics, and won’t irritate skin but still actually holds my fabric in place!  It comes in an easy to use roll-up stick which is perfect for seaming, binding, or applique.

Lapel Stick is water soluble and child friendly – it comes out with warm water – it’s safe to use on cottons, wool, polyester, blends, felt, linen, and leather.  This unique adhesive is also safe for your equipment and has undergone extensive real world testing with confirmations from leading Quilters and Sewers that it will not gum up your needles or damage your machines.
