On the Road


A few weeks ago I gave the SCHMETZ: Get To The Point presentation to the Sewcial Retreat in Novi, MI. Gosh, I love meeting up with fellow sewists and learning their sewing stories! My big surprise was meeting Linda. A couple of months ago I put out a call of action on Facebook SCHMETZneedles asking for beta testers for the new SCHMETZ Android App. Linda was the first to volunteer. She provided timely detailed comments that were helpful to our techs. In return, we sent Linda, along with the other testers, a nice thank you gift bag of SCHMETZ & Grabbit products. Anyway, Linda traveled from California to Michigan to solely attend Sewcial and before class introduced herself to me. What started out with a request for help, brought us face to face in the love of sewing. It was Sewcial! I love how friendship is so easy in our sewing world.

Enjoy the SCHMETZ App for Android and iPhone users.

Sew SCHMETZ & Grabbit Too!

Gold Rotary Blades


"I want to compliment you on the quality of your GINGHAM SQUARE Roll The Gold 45mm Titanium Coated Rotary Cutter Blades. I initially purchased them as an experiment for use as my shop rotary cutters. Then I gave several blades to my customers to test and put them in my own rotary cutters. My customers and I were immediately so impressed that I began stocking them as a regular item on my notions wall. I highly recommend them to all of my customers for both their sharpness and longevity. I can never keep them in stock!"
