We are very excited to announce that Lapel Stick is being featured in 2 page editorial article and product review in the April / May 2012 issue of Quilting Arts Magazine. This amazing article talks about the many uses for Lapel Stick in quilting and sewing as a temporary non-toxic fabric adhesive. The feature was written by Maria Elkins (an award winning original art quilter and noted quilting author) in the Out Of The Toolbox section and appears on page 76 and 77.

Topics covered in the article include: applique, matching stripes, couching, buttons, basting, binding, and labels. By using lapel Stick Maria made an entire beautiful quilt without a single pin or sliver of fusible.  "I especially appreciated not being poked and not having thread tangle around straight pins while hand stitching the binding." Maria Elkins

To read the entire article you can order a copy of Quilting Arts magazine online or you can find a copy at most local quilting stores in Canada and the USA.

Our thanks to everyone at Quilting Arts and to Maria Elkins for choosing Lapel Stick as a feature product for Quilters, Sewers, and Crafters!

An important part of our mission at Lapel Stick is to give back to the community and share our success. It is our privilege to meet some of the truly incredible non-profit organizations in the USA and Canada that are making a difference in the lives of children. One of them is Project Linus.

This amazing group provides a sense of security, warmth and comfort to children who are seriously ill, traumatized, or otherwise in need through the gifts of new handmade blankets and afghans, lovingly created by volunteer “blanketeers.” Their secondary mission is to provide a rewarding and fun service opportunity for interested individuals and groups in local communities, for the benefit of children.

On March 16th a member of our sales team (Mr. Eddie Diss) was able to visit the Project Linus Ft Wayne Chapter to learn more about the work being done by the volunteers and to present them with a donation of Lapel Sticks to help them create more beautiful handmade blankets and gifts for children in need. “It was a truly wonderful afternoon and my honour to meet such remarkable people. We are very blessed to have a group like Project Linus making a difference in the world.” Eddie Diss

Our deepest thanks to Peggy Albertson for allowing us the opportunity to to learn more about the Fort Wayne Chapter of Project Linus – you can visit them online at: or you can visit the main website to find a chapter near you and how you can get involved at
