For those that do free-motion quilting on a home sewing machine, our hands can get sore while trying to move our project around the needle. Today I want to share insights with you on the "Grip & Stitch Quilting Disks".
The Grip & Stitch Disks come in a pair of disks where the larger disk goes in your left hand, and the smaller disk in your right hand.
You simply place them onto your quilt and "rest" your hands on top of them, with the black side facing your quilt. Lightly pressing these disks you move your project under the presser foot to stitch out your free-motion quilting design.
These disks do a great job gripping your quilt, yet allowing your hands to relax. And, during hot weather, those concerned about wearing gloves will most likely enjoy the benefits of using these disks.
I've used a variety of tools that are designed to help you do free-motion quilting. SewCalGal can honestly say the Grip & Stitch disks are easy to use and allow your hands to relax, as well as stay cool on a hot summer day!
You can find this product online at Clever Craft Tools, the Fat Quarter Shop and there is a good chance you can find them at your local quilt shop too. If not, just let your local quilt shop know you'd like to see them in stock and they can order wholesale from Clever Craft Tools or from Brewer Sewing.
The retail price for Grip & Stitch is $29.95
You may also be interested in knowing that Clever Craft Tools donates a portion of proceeds, from the sale of Grip & Stitch, to a WA charitable non-profit organization that makes quilts for American Heroes and Camp Korey.
SewCalGal wants to disclose that she was contacted to evaluate the Grip & Stitch Quilting Disks and they also offered to donate a set of these disks as a giveaway. At the same time, SewCalGal reserved the right to voice her own opinion, as shared in this review. This product was used for over a month, extensively, while doing free-motion quilting on a couple of projects, on a domestic sewing machine. The experience was quite positive!
