Curve Runner

The Curve Runners we stock are featured in the Notions department of Threads magazine this month - issue #185 (June/July 2016). The Curve Runner from SACurve is an innovative solution for measuring curves or any line. It's a rolling ruler made from clear acrylic, so you can see through its measuring wheel for accuracy. The handle is 1/8 inch thick, making it easy to grip and comfortable to use. The wheel is 1/16-inch thick for precision measuring. Just place the wheel's 0 marking at the beginning of the line or curve you wish to measure and roll it along the line. The Curve Runner has measurements marked to the sixteenth of an inch or to the millimeter, and it comes in four circumferences: 8-inch, 20-centimeter, 12-inch, and 30-centimeter.

Newsletter and Teddy Bears

Our June newsletter is out! For those of you who go way back with us, you may remember our wool embroidered teddy bear that was our signature piece for several years. Well, the original prototype is now moving on to make space for our newer inventory. Check out details in the newsletter, or go right to our Etsy store to see this bear and others dating back to our beginnings. Some have already sold since the newsletter went out yesterday, but there are still several listed.

Ottobre Binder Give Away

I have a loose leaf 2-ring binder from Ottobre Design that I'll like to give anyone who wants it. It's quite nice for storing your traced patterns. IT measures about 10" by 12" by 1.75". The first one who responds gets it. I just ask that you send $6 for shipping to get it to you. Thanks.
