  • Stick 'n Carve (11/2013)

    Sulky Stick 'n Carve™

    Stick 'n Carve is the first, truly-new innovation for carvers at all skill levels because it completely eliminates one, age-old, bothersome, time-consuming, un-fun part of the Pumpkin Carving process.

    Simply Print or Copy a design onto a sheet of Stick 'n Carve, Peel off the release sheet, Stick it on a pumpkin, and Carve.

    It stays on securely through the whole carving process, then wipes off easily with a wet cloth when you are done.

    It is absolutely the quickest, easiest, and most fun way for the whole family to carve.

    Stick 'n Carve, Art # 457-30, is available now for only $3.99 for 3 sheets.

    You will continue to enjoy Stick 'n Carve long after Halloween is over because it is also perfect for Fruit Carving, Vegetable Carving, Wood Carving, and other Carving Crafts.

  • Artist and Designer, Linda Visnaw, created a wonderful Tsukineko Ink placemat and napkin project that is simple and elegant; but wait until you see how it comes alive when it is free-motion embroidered with Sulky Blendables. This one is for your artsy people; and even for those who think they aren't, this is such a fun project.

    Sulky has introduced 2 new stabilizers since we published the hugely popular, An Updated Supplement to Sulky's Secrets to Successful Stabilizing - Book 900B-17, and a total of 11 new stabilizers since we published, Sulky Secrets to Successful Stabilizing - Book #900B-11.

    New! Sulky Soft 'n Sheer Extra™ Iron-on, Cut-Away Stabilizer (08/20/10)

    Sulky Soft 'n Sheer Extra is 1-1/2 times as heavy as original Soft 'n Sheer with the added convenience of having a fusible, iron-on coating. This time-saving, mid-weight, cut-away is the perfect choice when you want a cut-away that is a little heavier than Soft 'n Sheer, but not as heavy as Cut-Away Plus. Iron it onto the wrong side of your fabric, using a low temperature of about 260¼. This makes it perfect for more delicate fabrics that don't like high heat. On mid-weight knits, use one layer of Soft 'n Sheer Extra rather than two layers of the original Soft 'n Sheer. And since you iron it on, your fabric will not distort when you hoop it. It is also a wonderful backing for embellishing pillow tops, and as an interfacing in garments that you simply want to remain cool and light. When we don't want fleece or batting in a quilted garment, this is the perfect alternative.

    New! Sulky Sticky Fabri-Solvy™ Water Soluble and NOW Printable Stabilizer (08/20/10)

    Sticky Fabri-Solvy works just the same as Fabri-Solvy only it has a wonderful self-stick back, which is accessed by removing a release sheet. It's like magic for turned appliqués: Stitch it, turn it, and stick it. It holds items in place for hoopless and reversible embroidery. Ideal for accurate placement of loose items when making scarves or thread collages. Photocopy your designs onto it, then peel off the release sheet and stick the design in place for hand embroidery, appliqué, needlepunch, machine and hand quilting. With no paper component, it washes away quickly and completely every time!

    For your photocopying convenience, it also comes in 8-1/2" x 11" sheets.

    NEW!! SULKY 60 wt. PolyLite™ Thread (08/20/10)
    Quilters love new Sulky PolyLite because it flows like butter through a long-arm or domestic sewing machine with virtually no tension adjustments needed. Perfect for micro-stippling or fine detail quilting and more accurate piecing. Predictable one-inch color changes in the multi-colors add interest and "forgiveness" to your quilting. Can be used top and bobbin for less frequent bobbin changes. Nearly invisible on bindings and stitching in the ditch. It's the perfect companion bobbin thread for Sulky Metallics, Rayons and Invisible Threads.

    The ideal thread for heirloom sewing, nearly invisible hand or machine appliqué, wing-needle work, exquisite fine thread lace, trapunto and more. Doesn't shrink, fray or break easily. Creates delicate decorative stitches, and crisp, readable lettering. It looks and feels like silk, but it is stronger and less expensive.

    A size 10/70 or 11/75 machine needle is recommended. It is colorfast, bleachable, and both washable and dry cleanable.

    Available in 36 solid and 24 multi-colors: 440 yd. solid color, small snap-spools: $3.99 sugg. retail 1,650 yd. Maxi-spools $7.49 sugg. retail Multi-colors: $4.99 and $11.99 respectively, sugg. retail
