 Sew it All TV 13 Days of Giveaways! Day 2: Win Getta Grip Clips & Sewline Aqua EraserNow, onto today’s giveaway and sneak peak at Sew it All TV season 7. I was lucky enough to shoot an episode with the always delightful Ellen March. We used a fabric painting technique that involved crayons, sandpaper and heat. You’ll have to catch the episode to get all the details or visit after March 1, 2014 to read about this exciting technique.

Prizes 241x300 Sew it All TV 13 Days of Giveaways! Day 2: Win Getta Grip Clips & Sewline Aqua EraserToday I am giving away some of my favorite sewing tools and items that came in handy when sewing the coasters I made for the show. There were several layers of fabric, and one was vinyl that I didn’t want to pierce with pins. While it is possible to just pin in the seam allowance, it was exceptionally helpful to use the Getta Grip Clips to hold all the layers together while I stitched. Additionally, the Sewline Aqua Eraser is a fantastic tool to use when erasing marks from fabric. Discovering a way to safely remove pencil marks keeps me worry free when prepping a project.

  1. Jane Meier says:

    Since I am near sighted, I couldn’t sew without my glasses, a good light and a needle threader. Another necessity is my tiny clover iron for pressing seams, applique, etc.

  2. Debrah says:

    My favorite tool is a stiletto my husband formed for me by hand in a Damascus steel class he took this fall. It’s beautiful and I treasure it.

  3. Kay Patterson says:

    I love my little thread clippers.

  4. My favorite tool is a binding buddy. Looks like a set of wheels with an axel. You wind all your binding on it as you iron it, then set down and sew it on your quilt. No tangles, no hassle.

  5. Sandi Gasper says:

    That is a tough question! The most obvious one would be my Designer Diamond Royale. However…the little things are so important. My spring load scissors. I have had them FOREVER! I don’t like cutting fabric without them.

  6. Audrey says:

    My favorite tool? Scissors. Pins, needle threader, wooden tool for poking out corners and points.

    I love my quarter inch foot, it is a blessing.

  12. Elizabeth T says:

    My well kept tailor’s shears and a small pair of super sharp, pointed embroidery scissors. Have had and used both for too many years to count and I’d be totally lost without them. Thankfully, I have a husband who actually enjoys sharpening things :D

  13. Mary Bryant says:

  16. Calla Ferguson says:

    This is perfect timing…..My favorite tool is my marking pen, for all the times pins don’t work, but it’s my most frustrating. Either one disappears too fast or the other I can’t get rid of no matter what I try. The Aqua Eraser sounds perfect…didn’t know about it!

  28. Judith Marsh says:

    Painter’s tape! Sometimes it’s holding something together as I sew. Sometimes it’s holding parts out of the way ( like purse straps and such). It doesn’t leave residue and it doesn’t poke me in the fingers like pins can.

    My favorite sewing tool is light. I have overhead lights and some task lighting so I can see what I’m doing and make less mistakes.

  47. Barbara J says:

    I discovered a chalk marking tool that has made a huge difference for me. It was in the quilters aisle, and it’s a roller filled with chalk dust. It leaves a fine line of chalk wherever you roll it. It’s so great for dark fabrics and it just sweeps away with a brush of your hand or a piece of paper. I love it!

  48. Mine is a very small pair of scissors I bought at an Sewing Expo. It has VERY POINTED, THIN blades and is the best ripper I’ve ever used and I’ve been sewing for 70 years.
