Woo hoo! We made it! You’ve been a dedicated crew, checking in week after week to learn all about what Pellon® has to offer. We’ve made it through all of the segments and have come to our fabulous line of batting, officially the Legacy™ by Pellon® line. I’ve been looking forward to this one as many of you may not have even know that we produce batting. Well, we do! We began introducing the line just 3 years ago and have been working hard to build exposure ever since. There is quite a variety and I’m happy to say, we’ve been getting tremendously positive feedback. Take a peek, head on out to your local independent quilt shop or Long Arm quilter and grab your favorite for your next quilt!

Depending on the type, our batting is offered both by-the-yard and in a variety of convenient packaged sizes including Crib, Throw, Twin, Queen & King.

This week, we take a step into the world of embroidery. I know what you’re thinking… isn’t that a little old fashioned? Heck no! Embroidery is all the rage these days and takes so many different forms. Don’t believe me? Take a peek at our Stitches & Embroidery Pinterest Board. Embroidery can be hand-stitched or done by machine and adds a special touch to any project. With such a wide range of embroidery styles, you’ll need a wide range of stabilizers to keep you on track. Thankfully, Pellon® has you covered.

- – – – – – – – – -

EMBROIDERY
Embroidery backings and toppings are used to stabilize fabric during machine and hand embroidery to avoid stretching and distortion. There are several types of embroidery stabilizers to go along with different fabric types and projects.

Tear Away
These products help to prevent distortion and avoid stretching while stitching. Use more layers for custom levels of stability. The excess stabilizer easily tears away, leaving no sticky residue. Available in both iron-on and sew-in varieties.

Cut Away
A product that provides continued stabilization that remains with fabric to prevent stretching or sagging stitches. Fast cut away removal.

Wash Away
Products that stabilize embroidery materials to avoid pulls or distortion while stitching. All products feature an easy wash away removal for no-show stabilization.

AND… as promised… Next week we’ll take a closer look at our wide range of Legacy™ by Pellon® Battings. You’ll also be given access to a very handy, downloadable pdf featuring all of the info we’ve presented in Pellon 101. Don’t you just love Summer??

This week we take a peek at Fusible Webs & Adhesives, the fabulous segment that brings us to the irresistible 805 Wonder-Under®. Seriously, how many fabulous-shirts, art quilts, play mats, etc… have you created using Wonder-Under®. Did you know that it was first introduced back in 1988? That’s 24 years of magic;).

- – – – – – – – – -

FUSIBLE WEBS & ADHESIVES
Fusible Webs feature a  steam heat-activated glue that will fuse fabric to fabric or any other porous surface such as cardboard or wood.  The bond created between the two surfaces allows for an easy, no-sew finish. New to the line are Pellon®’s laminates which are designed to offer a protective finish.

Paper-backed
Webs with a paper backing that can peeled off after initial fusing to reveal a second fusible side.

No Backing
Webs that have no backing and must be fused on both sides at once.

Laminates
Provides a protective finish to fabrics. Used for accessories, apparel and craft & home décor projects.

If you’ve been following along, you know we’re on to segment #2 this week: Crafts & Home Décor! If you’re just joining us, you can catch up on what you’ve missed right here.

- – – – – – – – – -

CRAFTS & HOME DÉCOR
Just as with apparel, it is extremely important to use the right stabilizer in craft and home decorating projects. This range of products lends itself to a diverse range of projects, including children’s toys, mixed media collages, scrap-booking and so much more. They are intended to strengthen and stabilize as well as aid and add to the design process in some way. The three major categories are: Stabilizers, Tracing Cloths and Mixed Media.

Stabilizers
For basic crafts, accessories and home décor projects.  Generally easy to use.

Tracing Cloths
Non-interfacing materials used in garment or craft patterning and creation.

Mixed Media
Spun bonded polyester sew-ins for crafting, sewing, quilting and fiber arts.

Next week we’ll jump in to the non-batting area of Quilting. (We’ll do a separate series on the Legacy™ by Pellon® batting after the Pellon 101 series is complete!) Until then, enjoy the last days of Spring!
