Universal Extension Table for Sewing Machines
Made of quality, durable plastic this universal extension table will fit over 90% of open arm machines. The adjustable arm plate can accommodate machine arms measuring between 2 7/8" and 4 1/4". Simply loosen the two screws on the back of the adjustable plate and slide it to fit your machines arm width.
Glide Magna Prewound Polyester Bobbins
Magna-Glide, prewound bobbins make bobbin changes a breeze. Since they have consistent tension throughout, you will achieve nicer stitches. The patented magnetic-core prevents backlash creating consistent stitches and eliminating the need for a backlash spring (if your bobbin case has a backlash spring, remove the spring before inserting this bobbin).

Panasonic Cordless Iron
With Panasonic's Cordless 360° Freestyle™ Iron, you can iron in any direction without complication. Features include a detachable water tank, three temperature settings, auto shut-off, and retractable cord. After filling the detachable water tank, plug in the base unit, and select your desired heat setting. This lightweight iron takes only one minute to reach its maximum heat setting of 392-degrees. After removing the iron from the base, the user has two and a half minutes of ironing at the selected temperature, six full minutes before the iron becomes cool. Place the iron back in the base when shifting garments to help maintain your heat setting.
Patterns are effortlessly transferred onto fabrics using chalk powder and a pounce pad for precision placement. This fine quality chalk powder (sold separately) cannot be rubbed off by hand but can be easily washed away or brushed off with a soft lint brush. White chalk powder can even be ironed off (DO NOT iron colored chalks).
Chalk Pounce Pads
Pounce Pad Chalks are available in a variety of colors for use with both dark and light fabrics. To use, lay your desired stencil on your fabric and gently brush over the screen with your chalked pounce pad. When you remove the stencil, a perfectly chalked quilt design will be visible. Quilt over the chalk design then remove the excess chalk by either washing it away or brushing it away with a lint brush. White chalk can be ironed away or heated away with a hairdryer. DO NOT iron colored chalks as they contain dye that will heat set into fabrics.
Magnetic Bowls for pins
Prevent the loss of your pins and needles with a Magnetic Pin Bowl. The base of the bowl is weighted and coated in rubber to prevent sliding and damage to surfaces. You can attach the Magnetic Pin Bowl to metal frames and use it horizontally, vertically, or upside down.
Clover Mini Iron
The Clover Mini Iron is ideal for small projects with tight, hard-to-reach spaces. The compact size makes it perfect for detailed work. It features a lightweight body, 8ft electrical cord, easy-glide soleplate, a slide-switch setting for temperature control, and an included iron stand.
