    My daughter is getting married on Oct. I would use the fiber cluster to make her 2 flower girls dolls with bridal fessed for their gifts.

    Just last week my son was asking for cheesecloth! I’d love to win this so i could give it to him. He just started beekeeping and needed cheesecloth to strain his honey! (Maybe not your typical use for cheesecloth though LOL!)

    I can always use fabric! The cheesecloth makes me think of Halloween. With the colors, there’s so much you can do to spook up decorations and crafts!

    would love some nice solid colored fabric and the cheesecloth, I make my own ricotta style cheese and that would be great for that!!!!

    I’ve also now ‘liked’ JoAnn Fabrics on Facebook as well.

    FYI ~ The link for JoAnn’s facebook page you’ve listed has an extra http at the end so that link isn’t working correctly.

    OH gosh, those all sound like great new products. I could use every single one of them. The batting would be great for me to use in a quilt I need to get made soon for my Granddaughter who is 6 months old in just a few more days.

    The fabric I would love to try. I mean, WHO of us wouldn’t want to try fabric? LOL

    The cheesecloth I need because I just ran out and need more very soon. I use cheesecloth in the kitchen when I’m making soups. It’s something I thought of years ago when I was making homemade turkey noodle soup and was afraid I’d miss a small bone and one of my young children would possibly choke on one. I couldn’t stand the thought that if that happened, it would have been my fault. So I use cheesecloth and lay it out in a large rectangle/square-ish shape, then lay the turkey carcass or ham bone or chicken etc. onto the cheesecloth. Once I have that on the cheesecloth, I pull the cheesecloth up making sure the entire carcass is covered and tie it closed tightly. I then make another knot making a loop in the cheesecloth which is something to make it easy to pull from the soup when done. When the soup is ready, I take my large wooden spoon and put the end through the loop I had created and lift the cheesecloth up from the liquid to hold it out of the pot so it can drain most of the liquid in the pot. I then put the cheesecloth ‘package’ onto a cookie sheet, open it up, and pull any meat off the bone making sure I get no small bones and can then put the meat back into the broth/soup. It works wonderfully and so far I’ve never had to worry about any bones in my soups. I’m very happy to see your cheesecloth is food grade so I can use Pellon brand instead.

    Then, of course, I have lots of smaller pieces of batting that I can’t bear to throw away and are totally usable but not large enough for any quilts or projects so that batting tape would be awesome to try.

      Hi Vicki —
      I loooove that you shared your use of the Cheesecloth and would love your permission to share that with our fans! I’ll reach out to you directly via email:)

    I would make a quilt out of the cheesecloth and dye different blocks differect colors
    and then sew them all together

  8. Jennie Bobbins says:

    I have been wanting to make cheese lately, the cheesecloth would come in handy!! And I’d love to try the knit tape to fuse my batting scraps!

  9. ritainalaska says:

    i would use the easy-knit tape and make usable pieces out of my stash of leftover pieces of batting and the perfect loft to stuff the the little toy pattern pieces i have cut and stashed.

  10. Karen A says:

    I love the idea of the batting tape, much faster than basting by hand. All these items would be used for quilting projects( except the cheesecloth).

  11. Lisa Marie says:

    I would like to try that tape for piecing scrap batting together. That would be a great way to use up scraps while making batting pieces big enough for table runners or baby quilts.

  12. Marcia R. says:

    I would love to have the batting tape to make quilt-sized batting out of leftovers. I also imagine some super cute dishtowels made out of the cheesecloth!
