CHA Winter 2013: Haley’s Clover USA Sewing and Notions Picks

January 14, 2013

CHA Coverage


On Sunday morning, I attended the Clover USA media breakfast at CHA Winter 2013. Much to my excitement, I saw a ton of great sewing-related products that made my fabric-loving heart very happy indeed!

Here are a few items that caught my eye:


Remember the slap bracelets from the 90s? Well, the Pin ‘n Stow gives that satisfying snap AND it keeps your pins in perfect position while you’re working.


I’m kind of in love with the new line of Bordeaux Ultimate Scissors & Shears. Even the littlest version cut through 5 layers of fabric with no problem.


Three words: Rotary. Cutter. Cradle. I’m pretty sure that every crafter needs one of these on his/her worktable.



I was already a fan of the Kanzashi Flower Maker, but these extra small versions open up a ton of new options for embellishment. I can’t wait to start using the new templates!


I love a good container, and these new Extra Large Basket Frames are such a versatile option for storage and home decor. I can definitely see a yarn basket in my future!


Did I mention that Jumbo Wonder Clips exist?! I use the original size for absolutely everything, so the mere mention of a jumbo version had me doing a happy dance on the show floor.

I always love checking out what’s new in the Clover booth, but they really went above and beyond this year, don’t you think?
