This week we’re launching the new Sewing With Nancy series! Watch for a new program online and soon on PBS stations for the next 26 weeks! With this new series, I’m welcoming a new sponsor of the Sewing With Nancy program, Pellon Interfacings & Batting. Pellon is graciously sponsoring the Closed Captioning portion of the show.
We tested a few new Pellon products
Pellon was a sponsor of Sewing With Nancy back in the early days when interfacing was their main product line. Fast forward to today and Pellon has expanded into many offerings, including products for machine embroidery. One of my stitchers used Pellon’s Ultra Weave Stabilizer and Ivory 300 Count Cotton Fabric. The combo of the fine-gauge fabric and the woven stabilizer were the best we’ve tried. Now, I know you’re thinking, “She’s just saying that.” Honestly, I couldn’t have been more impressed.
Usually at this point, I’d show you a photo of the fabric and interfacing. We took that image, but laughed at our efforts. Ivory fabric with white interfacing fused to it had about as much contrast as photographing a white-out snow storm. The embroidery designs were purchased at EmbroideryLibrary.com.
The Magic in The Middle
The above saying emphasizes the fact that interfacings and stabilizers are equally as important as the fashion fabric, or in this case the embroidery. Without a good foundation, the finished results usually lack luster. I’m delighted to now have interfacing and fabric, 300 thread count no less, to use for embroidery.
Pellon has products available both in the United States and Canada. They are the industry leader in interfacing, offering both nonwoven and woven products in the areas of apparel, crafts & home décor, quilting, fusible webs & adhesives, and embroidery. They also have a wide range of batting and home goods with a product line that is ever expanding.
The three random winners are:
- Winner of the mermaid design is Cecilia.
- Winner of the fish design is Kim M. Harrington.
- Winner of the bubble design is Dell.
