Lesley shares her favourite Clover notions with you
Lesley and the team were busily tidying up our Clover stand they got talking what about their favourite Clover notion was. Many of the Clover notions may be small but can make a huge difference when it come to making certain tasks so much easier. Lesley would love to share just two of her favourite notions with you and they are the Easy Loop Turner and the 5-in-1 Sliding Gauge. Come along to our next Club morning tea in April to see one of these notions being used in more detail. I have included an educational video showing just how useful the sliding gauge can be and the many uses you are sure to find for it.
CLOVER EASY LOOP TURNER
This thin piece of plastic doesn’t look like much but you will be amazed at the difference it can make when it comes to turning loops inside out. This loop turner is great as it will clip down to hold your fabric in place and you can insert cording, elastic and batting strips simultaneously as you turn the fabric through. The pack comes with two turners in the pack with the smaller loop turner measures 10″ x .2″ and the larger loop turner measures 10″ x .3″.
CLOVER 5-in-1 SLIDING GAUGE
The Clover 5-In-1 Sliding Gauge by Nancy Zieman is a handy tool which makes both your quilting and sewing tasks easy. It is made from durable plastic and has an adjustable slider that moves smoothly along the ruler sliding function. This slide can then be easily locked down so you won’t loose your measurements when moving the ruler around. This sliding gauge is ideal for marking and spacing button holes, measuring and marking your seam allowances accurately, get a straight and even hem everytime, create perfect circles with the circle compass and measure right angles precisely with the T gauge. All this from one small and compact notion and we are sure you’ll be amazed how often you use it.
