Raiding Harbor Freight for Quilting Supplies

Mar 19, 2011

About a month ago, I read this post over at KarrieLyne's.  Then later I read this post at Erin's.  

Everyone talking about Harbor Freight Tools....
 it dawned on me that there is one right next to the Joann's near me.

So yesterday I decided to check it out.  Yep!  I'm on the bandwagon.  The blades (I bought 6 packs of two @ $1.79 each) fit my Dritz rotary cutter.  I wasn't sure if they would fit since all the online talk concerned Olfa's.  Aaaaand - grippy quilting gloves for $1.59.  This should be a BIG improvement for me since I've never used gloves.


Before the toddler got too squirmy (nobody needs him running around in a store with SO many power tools, blades, and hazards), I managed to find these mini clamps for $1.99.


They are perfect for clamping my quilts to the back yard fence I use for a lot of photo shoots!


Check it out!  It's absolutely worth it for the rotary cutter blades alone.

  3. Oooohh....I have some of those clamps but they are plain black. Must find colorful ones! And I absolutely can't FMQ without gloves. You'll have to let me know if you notice a difference!

  5. Very nice! How convenient that they're by JoAnn's! I need to check out those clips on my next trip.

  6. Thanks for the idea of the clamps. Bought clothespins a while back but were not big enough for the fence. Found today at Lowe's. Couldn't find colorful ones but anything is better than just throwing the quilt over the fence.

  8. I finally bought some grippy gloves and they make such a huge difference! Why did it take me so long to get them??

  9. The little clips are a staple in my house...cheap chip clips, hold towels around necks for quick haircuts...and on and on.
    Im a HUGE fan of harbor freight. I'm Kenna of KennaQuilts who emailed Kerri the tip :) I have also bought the huge carabiner clips because they are awesome for hanging bags on the stroller or carrying multiple shopping bags at once (one side is padded). They usually have coupons on their website too!
