CHA Summer: Clover

We’re very excited about all the new products from Clover. How clever is it to put a ring sizing hole on the packaging of their new Protect and Grip Thimbles?

These thimbles are made of a soft elastic material capped with metal so that you can both push and pull a needle. You can buy them in multiple sizes, each for $8.95.

Do you ever have a hard time reusing your bag patterns? Clover’s new Trace ‘n Create Bag, California Collection, with Nancy Zieman is a set of templates that will allow you to make 6 different bag styles over and over again. The MSRP is $19.95. You can also buy your bag hardware from Clover.

How do you store your sewing bobbins? Clover tells us that this new Stack ‘n Store Bobbin Tower is making a big splash. The tower is a lightly flexible material that can be stacked several towers high.

Here’s demonstrator Fran demonstrating the newest item from Clover, the Hana-Ami Flower Loom.

Last but not least, Clover has recently released a new size of circular knitting needle. It’s a tiny 9 inches long and has angled join to make knitting with such a tiny needle easier. Amanda actually did some sock knitting in the booth today with the size 2 9″ circular needle and she reports it was pure joy to get some knitting in at CHA summer 2009

    I don’t sew but I think that’s pretty cool – I especially like the tool for holding bobbins.

    Bobbins are so easy to loose, great storage.

    I am not a huge sewer, but most of these items looked like they had real purpose, if only to remind me of my youth! I hate thimbles, but they are useful. These look like they might be comfortable and stay on. I don’t have enough bobbins, but the stacker is really cool for someone that really sews. And last the Hana Ami so reminds me of when I was a kid. I love it.

    I tried on one of the thimbles and loved it. I occasionally do some hand quilting and it is so hard to grip the needle to pull it through.
