Stow your stuff in these colorful zippered Eco Pouches and stay organized everywhere you go.

Each pouch features a new, beautiful quilt by Christina Cameli.
This 4-in-1 tool from It’s Sew Emma does quadruple duty as a ruler, seam guide, 0.25” marking tool for binding and features a handy 45° line for trimming half-square triangles. Keep it close in your sewing room to use at every stage of the sewing process!
Quilters rejoice! The Warm Company’s game-changing fusible web, Steam-A-Seam 2, is back and better than ever! It now comes in sheets (some even pre-printed with letters) and bolts, and is ideal for fabric collage. First, you fuse your fabric to the web, cutting the shape as needed. Then peel off the web’s paper backing and stick the shape to your surface. Until you fuse everything in place, it’s completely repositionable, giving you plenty of opportunity to tweak placement.
