Kai Curved 5 Inch Scissors $23.00

Quite simply, the best little scissors for trimming and clipping I have ever used. I discovered these about a year ago, now keep one pair on a ribbon around my neck and have another at the ironing board. Perfect for nipping threads, ideal for close trimming an enclosed seam, accurate for clipping into a corner. Super sharp---I just can't say enough good things about such a simple little too. The Kai people took their basic little 5 inch scissor and put a slight curve into it, and, voila, a brilliant improvement. 5 stars!!!

Kai Japanese Knife Set $150.00
From the people who make my favorite all time scissors. Last spring I picked up this knife set, and these are the knives we all choose first in the kitchen. My foodie friends who came for Thanksgiving asked if I could get them a set. A pleasure to use, keep a sharp edge with the occasional swipe with the knife sharpener. I bought these for my own Christmas gifts, got a few extra sets for our customers.
4" paring knife
6" utility knife
8" chef knife
  
Surgical Seam Ripper $15.00
My favorite new tool, (thanks to a quilting friend who alerted me to it), cannot use anything else for ripping. This is a surgical instrument, and the blade can be replaced as it dulls (I always want a spare on hand). Takes a bit of getting used to, and you must be careful, but it slides into a seam and with a gentle motion, cuts right through the threads. Love love love it! Comes with spare blades.

Lite Craf-Tex $7.00
After much fussing and testing, this is THE product I love for interfacing the body of handbags. A non woven sew-in it is just the right weight for many of the bags I've been making recently (3 handbag patterns are coming up in the months ahead). Even though it is called 'lite', it really is a good basic mid weight with many uses.

measures 27" x 36"

The companion product (I recommend you keep both on hand), is Craf-Tex heavy, which is perfect for the bottom of a tote-type bag.
  
Clover Fine Line Chalker $9.50

It is the little things that can make a big difference. This has become one of my favorite marking tools. It makes a FINE line that shows on almost all fabrics and tends to brush off easily. Clover makes the very finest sewing products, this is a staple in my studio which I carry with me to class. Thanks to Sandy Globius of Fabric of Vision in Ashland for turning me on to this cool little tool.
