I hope you will be able to navigate all my content more easily. I will be going mobile friendly for all who use the tablet and cell phone to view items on-line. My shopping cart will also upgrade and will go mobile friendly.  I will be going through growing pains with the newsletter.

polyproMoisture-management fabrics are lightweight knits that are designed to wick moisture away from the body – and to challenge embroiderers. A kit has been designed and contains 50 pieces of each of two types of stabilizers used successfully by many embroiderers to prevent puckering, drifting outlines and other challenges associated with this fabric type.

– 50 Pieces of No Show Mesh
– 50 pieces of Medium Firm Tearaway
– 50 pieces of Poly Pro Performance
– Kit includes 20 70/10 Titanium extra slim ballpoint needles (This kit is designed for  commercial embroiderers as the needles included do not have the flat back and cannot be used on the home machines)

See how the poly pro stabilizer works.

You can purchase the Poly pro kit at Jenny’s Sewing Studio today.

I am always on the outlook for new and useful products. Here are a few new products I have added to the web site cart.
Blue Fig has introduced a new designer series of sewing machine luggage. Check out these lovely color combinations in contemporary Purple, Yellow and Grey. The combo includes a trolley, a project bag and a notions bag.

I have also added a new sewing light. This flexible light is great for close up sewing with dark fabrics and ripping. I hope you do not have to rip, but I know I do. Place a spotlight on your sewing.

Embroidery Compass makes placement and stabilizing easy. This unique tool will help all embroiderers choose the correct stabilizer, topping, needle and technique for any project. Just dial the pointer to the type of fabric to be embroidered and the chart give you suggestions for each step of the embroidery process. Click here for a quick video on how the compass works.embroidery compass

Embroiderer’s Helper is a tool used to position embroidery on multiple sizes of shirts so the embroidery is accurately placed at the front breast area. Especially helpful for Tee shirts and sweatshirts. Embroiderer’s Lil Helper is a tool used to position embroidery on multiple sizes of shirts so the embroidery is accurately placed above the pocket area. Watch the video to see how these to placement tools work.
