They’re handcrafted—colorful cotton fabric in complex patterns painstakingly appliquéd to a soft canvas backing. Although there is no batting per se, the appliqué stitches go completely through to the backing, catching just a thread or two for stability. Are they quilts? Are they art? No matter what niche you care to put these appliquéd fiber pieces in, they’re extraordinary. Take a look at our collection.

Choose from two styles of baskets. The large unlined market basket pictured is about 10” tall (not counting the leather-covered handle) and the circumference is about 46”. Colors vary as each sturdy basket is uniquely crafted and different. The selling of these baskets is guided by fair trade policies in support of rural poverty alleviation in Ghana. Take a look at both styles we offer.
You may be shaking your head at the idea of giving an iron as a present, but this is one that made my list! I love this little iron. Used in conjunction with the Steady Betty shown below (and common sense toward safety), I can curl up in a chair and press in my lap all night long while I enjoy a movie. Best present ever – hint, hint!
This serrated scissor set includes Karen’s favorites: the Perfect 4″, the Perfect Curved, and the Perfect 7½” Scissors. Karen has been using nothing but serrated edge scissors to cut her fabric for the past 25 years. The serrated blade pulls the fabric into the scissors rather than pushing it away like traditional scissors and it helps keep the fabric from fraying. Both blades are sharp to the very tip. The 4″ scissors are great for detail cutting on curves and points, the 7½” scissors are great for cutting single or multiple layers of fabric, and the tip of the curved scissors allows for close clipping without cutting into your quilt top. The curved scissors are fabulous for clipping threads for machine quilting, machine appliqué, and machine embroidery. All of these scissors have a very comfortable handle and are easy to use for either right or left-handed users. A must have for every quilter! Grab a set for everyone on your list! They will thank you.
