Black Friday Personal Shopper Finds

The people have spoken. You told me what kind of quilt products you’re on a mad search to find this holiday and I’ve found them for you. And best yet, at great prices because it’s Black Friday. That’s right, it’s the “holiday” after the holiday, and you either love it or you hate it. There’s no in between. I lean toward the latter, but only when it comes to the thought of standing in long lines and pushing past droves of people. No, thank you.

Thank goodness for the popularization of online shopping. If I don’t have to get dressed or even take a shower before getting all my Christmas gifts taken care of, you bet I won’t. Before much more ado, I give you your Black Friday personal shopper requests:

Silvia was looking for a pen that has a stiletto on one end and a seam ripper on the other. This 4-in-1 sewing tool is about the coolest thing I’ve ever seen. I don’t know what says “I’m kind of an expert quilter and I know what I’m doing” like this does.

And while we’re talking about stilettos, this one was just too cool to keep to myself. Do you have those friends who seem to have everything? Well, I bet they don’t have a gorgeous brass stiletto. I’d venture to say they would be afraid to use this tool because it’s just too pretty.


While we’re still on quilting tools, let’s talk about the quilters’ square. This is the square up ruler. It’s for making perfect corners, perfect squares and clean corners. Use it in combination with my favorite log cabin ruler and you’ve got yourself the most professional log cabin quilt blocks of your career.

Many of us are members of quilt guilds, so we often play games or do white elephant gift exchanges so everyone can share a little something. What works best for exchanges and raffles are always cute little, inexpensive gifts like these:

A quilt pattern – this one called Crazy Eights is all pre-cut fabrics


A CD with back issues of Fons & Porter’s Love of Quilting (they’ll think you spent a whole lot, but you didn’t– thank you, Black Friday)


And last, but certainly not least, the AccuQuilt Go! Fabric Cutter. This is one of the most desired items among quilters this year. I had many of you asking where to find one, and for good reason. This fabric cutter can make cutting up to 90% faster than using rotary cutter and scissors. Even more, you can cut out complicated shapes that would have been nearly impossible without it. You can get two sizes of this fabric cutter: the full-size fabric cutter and the baby size.


Right now, Shop Fons & Porter is offering 30% off products storewide* plus free shipping with code BLACK30. In particular, small quilt projects like wall hanging quilts, table runners, stockings and lap quilts are popular right now, so give them a look-over. Let me know what amazing finds you discover this season, and help each other with hard-to-find items in the comments.

  1. Thanks for letting me know about this Black 30. I love getting copies of their old magazines whenever they have free shipping. I wish I had more money to spend on their rulers and templates but I have 6 kids, 5 grandkids, and 3 Dec. birthdays to shop for!
