Sewline – Review & Giveaway

Remember my post about the Quilt & Craft fair last month? No? Well you can pop over and have a look now. The link is HERE. Go on. I’ll wait.

Why am I referring to this post you ask? Well I wrote about the workshop I’d attended with Sue Daley and my discovery of the Sewline Glue Pen. I was in love with it then, and I’m still in love with it now.

 

I use the glue pen for my English paper piecing, but there are many more uses for it – including applique, quilting and general sewing. It’s a water soluble blue glue which dries clear and quickly. Once glued, the fabric pieces can be pulled apart, so not to worry if they are misplaced or need to be adjusted.

I hate tacking. It’s the most tedious part of English paper piecing. It takes so long and then you end up with little bits of thread all over the place. The Sewline glue pen is the perfect solution.

I just dot the glue stick in 3 places along the line of the fabric and then fold over onto the paper. Finger press for a second and it’s stuck down. Perfect!

English Paper Pieced Flower - Glue

Sewline Fabric Glue Pen

I think this product is fantastic, so I wrote to Sewline and told them so. Sewline have kindly given me some of these glue pens to giveaway. But more on that later…

I just want to tell you a little bit about a few other Sewline products which I’ve had the opportunity to review, like the Sewline Trio.

 

 

I love to stitch. I’ve always used the water soluble blue pens to transfer the designs onto the fabric. You know the ones? They’re great, though sometimes, getting the blue ink to completely disappear can be hard. You spray it and it’s gone then when the fabric dries, little blue smudges appear again.

The Sewline Trio is a fabric pencil with a unique 360 degree rotating mechanism for three functions in one. It comes with a thin 0.9mm black lead for marking on lighter cloth, a 0.9mm white lead for dark cloth (completely invaluable) and a blank roller for tracing or making indentations on fabric. The pen also comes with a small eraser located underneath the top cover and a soft triangular grip. Refills are available so you don’t need to buy another whole new pen.

Sounds pretty good, doesn’t it? I tried it out last night and am smitten. I’m ready to throw out all of my blue pens and just use the Sewline Trio. The pencil lines are so thin and the transferred design looks so neat. Plus it doesn’t dry out. You can come back to it in a few months and it’s still going to work.

Sorry it’s not the best photo – taking photos at night isn’t a very good idea.

Sewline have lot’s of other great products like the AIRerasable Fabric Pen, AQUAeraser and the Sewline Needle Threader.

  1. Well, tonight I'd say my seam ripper. I made a mistake and it was definitely nice to have it! =)

  5. What is the one item in your sewing box which you just can’t live without? My needle threader has to be nearby because I cannot see how to thread a needle without it.

    ReplyDelete
  6. My seam ripper my husband made me. It has a custom wooden handle.

    ReplyDelete

  14. Thats a hard one .... seam ripper? rotary cutter? Sewing machine!!! I know thats not in my sewing box, but it's in my sewing cabinet so nearly the same ;D

    ReplyDelete
  15. Probably my seam ripper..although I don't know what i'd do without my treasury of pins.

    ReplyDelete
  16. I'm also a stalker ... sorry, follower :) x

    ReplyDelete
  17. I'd have to say my clover needle threader. It's very useful for threading those tiny needles for appliqué for English Paper Piecing.

    I have a question about glueing your pieces. Do you then wait until you're completely done your project to remove the papers? I mean, is the glue then released with water once you're done?

    I'm currently working on a hexxie quilt, and I don't mind the tacking. Though it does take time, I've just prepared all my pieces while watching tele. I never thought to use glue to tack them, but I can see how that would be much faster.

    ReplyDelete
  18. I've started using the Sewline glue stick with my latest English Paper pieced project and I love it. So much easier than tacking with thread. So that's definitely one of my favorite tools. But the one I use most often (and therefor is my favorite) is my seam ripper. Sad, isn't it?

    ReplyDelete
  19. I'm also a follower, have been for a while now.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Like most people who sew, I would ahve to say my seam ripper, quick-unpick, whatever you want to call it! Imagine doing the job with a sewing needles and a pair of embroidery scissors? No thanks!

    BTW, I do follow this blog - anonymously (don't know why; I follow over 100 blogs that way!!)Either way, I always know when you've posted!

    ReplyDelete
  21. My sister also uses these pens for her hexies,the trio pen looks fantastic,will have to go and have a look at the website you mentioned.
    The one thing I can't do without are my applique needles,using them is like using a hot knife to slice through hard butter they make the work so much easier and neater than ordinary needles :) Barb.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Sorry to be repedative but it is my "quick unstitch" ... could not live without it. This sewline pen is also a great tool if you are making the Farmer's Wife quilt as it help secure the templates whilst you cut them!!!! I need another as my 9y.o daughter keeps borrowing mine for her sewing creations!! Thank you for the chance

  32. My favorite thing may just well be this Sewline glue stick. I use mine mostly for paper piecing.

    Pick me!!!....grin.

    ReplyDelete
  33. I find my measuring tape to be invaluable for squaring up and taking measurements on pieces that are bigger than my rulers. The sewline glue looks very useful. I'd love to try it.

    ReplyDelete

  108. Can't do without my first needlethreader. I started sewing at age 10 and got it with my first needles and thimble. It is an oldfashioned one that you have to put through the eye of the needle then pull the thread through. It has gone out of business since i now use another (yay sewline!!!) but it still is in my sewingbox. Will never get rid of it.

    ReplyDelete
  109. Lol, another fan of the seam ripper (aka quick unpick) here! Since I started quilting though the rotary cutter and my patchwork rulers run a close second.
    Cheers,

    ReplyDelete

  115. I love my AccuQuilt Studio. I don't think I'd quilt if I didn't own it. I just hate cutting without it that much.

    I haven't tried the Sewline products, but they look awesome. Now to see if they are available in Canada. . .

  134. I can't live without my blue watersoluble pen, but I also bought one of those Sewline Trio pencils when I had to draw lines on dark fabric. Maybe I should spend more time bonding with it!!

  135. I think I need my seam ripper the most. Sometimes I keep it out to ward off the mistakes I might make! Doesn't usually work though. I love the sew line pencils. They are great. WOuld love to win the glue stick. Maybe I will try hexagons then. Thanks for the chance.

  149. How on earth can I choose. I have to say my rotary cutter, but without my ruler, I'm in trouble when quilting. That glue pen sure would help with my applique. I will be making a quilt with a beach scene that has a black and white light house that has diamond shapes on it.

    ReplyDelete
  150. Just one item? Hmmm...I'd have to say my scissors, though my sewing box usually has more than one pair in it at a time! I usually have my thread snips, curved tips, my Fiskars spring action scissors and of course the mini-blade sharpener! LOL

  157. If I can't say 'inspiration' is the one item I can't live without in my sewing box, then it would have to be the humble nappy pin....can be used for sew many different things. There are more items I also couldn't live without, but I wanted mine to be different from everyone else! Hugs Naomi

  158. Wow, what a great giveaway! I've heard great things about the pens. The one thing I couldn't live without in my sewing kit is, of course, needles! I took a hiatus from quilting and had moved across the Atlantic by the time I got back into it. I wasn't sure if I'd stick with it, but out came the needles and some of my old thread and I'm working on paper piecing hexagons for quilts for my daughters. :)
