A new release for Applique lovers is the long-awaited, Piece O’ Cake approved, Essential Sandboard. Followers of Becky Goldsmith and Linda Jenkins (aka Piece O’ Cake design gals) know that their method of applique has always used a sandboard for stabilizing fabric as you trace the applique designs.
With the Essential Sandboard, you don’t have to wonder what grit, what size, what else can it do? From quilting to applique, stenciling and drawing lines for ½ square triangles – the Essential Sandboard is exactly that, essential!
As a bonus – there is a free, downloadable pattern available on PatternSpot.com! For those of you who may not know, we have a sister web-site called PatternSpot that is a downloadable marketplace for patterns of all kinds! From quilting, to garments, and embroidery to this wonderfully handy pouch – you can find it at PatternSpot!
Still not convinced that the Sandboard is Essential to you? Please take a few minutes to watch Becky Goldsmith in Action as she demonstrates various ways to get the most use out of this new tool! If the following video is not displaying correctly – click here to see it on You Tube!
