I absolutely love her binding kit!! One of these days, I need to try the Flatter spray too!
I would have to say the Elmer's school glue! I'm a total machine girl and the glue just makes sense! Thanks for sharing that!
True Grips, school glue, and the Flatter spray are all new to me . . . and I really want to make a binding kit like hers!
Some great tips! I don't have books, normal glue, Flatter or Swedish Fish laying around at my sewing table … I think i need all of them:-)
Speaking from recent (frustrating) experience, the binding kit is a necessity in my sewing room. Wish I had known of its existence prior to last weekend, when I was wrestling with an uncooperative quilt–or perhaps I was the uncoordinated, uncooperative partner in the equation.
Well, the candy is a new "quilting notion". I never heard of the Flatter spray starch, so that is new also.

the Quilters tips look like something I need to try. I love the idea of the chocolate in the binding kit too! I've never heard of Flatter spray either.
Flatter spray starch is new to me.
I am also unfamiliar with the Flatter spray. Might have to give that a try!
Nothing new to me cuz I'm a notions freak, but so fun to watch! All these notions make quilting so much easier than in the "olden" days! Thanks for the giveaway!
great video. the Flatter spray and Elmers glue
I like the binding kit
Flatter spray is new to me and I love her binding kit!
The alphabitties! Great idea.
The Flatter spray looks really helpful! I use notebooks too-keep record of what precuts I have and ideas for quilt patterns.
I've never heard of Flatter spray starch – I should give it a try!!
Flatter spray is new to me!
Flatter spray, and I need to try it!
I have never tried the Frixion pens-I have been using a pencil for marking. I LOVE Vanessa's patterns and can not wait for her Gooseberry fabric!!!
The fingertips are new to me and HOW WONDERFUL are those!! I dislike wearing the gloves as well BUT I DO IT. I am going to get some on those babies! Also the Flatter Spray, i just use regular starch but i go through it rather fast. I do use a lot, but i dont know if its how it comes out of the can or how i use it. I might try some of the Flatter spray just to try. I like natural 🙂 QUESTION: Is there a pattern for her little notion bag? For my granddaughter to make?
I haven't heard of Flutter spray starch before. It sounds like a great notion to have on hand.

I would love to try Flatter and I think I really need the alphabitties!
I am a Swedish Fish fiend, only the red ones because I am a purist too.???? This is a very good clip. I have been sewing for a few decades and have most of these notions, but the new seam ripper as alphabits are now a need. I love your binding kit and now need to make one. Thank-you for this.
I have never heard of Quilter's Tips
(Noble Notions #QT22) before. I have used gloves before and find that my hands drag to much. I need to try the Quilter's Tips. Also have not heard of the Flutter Spray. It would be nice to have a product last longer.
The flatter spray was new to me and I'm also interested in trying school glue. Never would have thought of that on my own.
I like the quilt tips. Looks much better than gloves.
The true grips! I love the idea of not wearings gloves for FMQ, especially when it's 90 degrees outside! 🙂
How adorable is Vanessa???
It is so fun to see what other's like to use and compare to what I use. The nice part would be to craft several of the binding kits from the free tutorial to handle other projects such as embroidery and for a mending kit to travel with. Need to dig around in my stash and make up a few of them.
Thanks for sharing your great ideas and recommendations.
Definitely the Flatter spray and the candy would be newbie additions to my sewing room!
The alphabitties and flatter spray are new to me. I need to give both a try. robinsheloratearthlinkdotnet
I have not used a rotating cutting mat nor the Flatter spray. Now both are on my must try list.
I love the binding kit. I made one as a gift for a friend, but now I need to make one for myself!
I'd like to make a little binding kit like hers and I haven't heard of flatter spray before. I just purchased the Matilda spinning cutting board from Fat Quarter Shop and couldn't be happier with it. It is so well made and works so great. I really LOVE it!!!!!!
Good old fashioned school glue!? I never would have guessed! Sarah: crjandsbj(at)netzero(dot)com
I'd love to try the Flatter spray and the Alphabities – both sound like great products! peks1001(at)yahoo(dot)com
The flatter spray and the alphabet ties are both new to me and both are now on my "wish list!"
Quilter tips are new to me. I never really cared for the gloves because they kept my hands too hot.
I have never heard of the Flatter spray. I also like the idea of a binding kit.
Many great notions here! I really love her binding kit with its zippered pouch and scissors holder…especially the treats she stashes in there! I have never heard of the spray starch she shared. I will have to look for that. Loved the video! Well done.
I love the quilting finger tips. I don't know how I didn't know about that. Also love the binding kit!
Flatter spray, Elmer's glue, and Olfa Splash cutter.
Flatter spray and school glue
Love all her notions,,,I use a couple of then, but that Binding kit is so cute and practical…
The binding kit is a great idea. I need to make one of these. Flatter spray is new to me.
The fingertip grips are in my sewing room somewhere-I had forgot about them! I will have to dig them out since I have been doing some free motion quilting again.
I have not heard of the Flatter spray before.
I think the finger tip grippers for quilting are a great idea!!!
I'm love the binding kit. I have a hexie kit but not a binding kit. Time to make one.
I want to try those Quilt Tips! They seem like they would be more manageable than the gloves!
True Grips are new to me.
I use glue sticks but never elmers glue, need to try.
The Alphabities were already on my "list" now I want to try the finger tip grips and the Flatter spray. And make the cute binding tote. The rotating mat would be a great addition too. I really enjoy hearing from the designers and FQS on products they use.
I love the rotating cutting mat! I haven't seen that before but what a fun notion. Also love how Swedish Fish "count" as a notion. I'm going to put some treats in my sewing room.
The binding kit kit is genius…and I'm happy to see that someone else thinks Swedish Fish are essential.
Love your binding kit. Two notions that I have never used before are the Flatter Soak and the Alphabitties. I love learning about new notions that will make my patchwork and quilting a better experience. Thanks
I'm definitely going to be making the binding kit… Wonderful idea!
I've never heard of the flatter spray…. I love Swedish fish also!
New to quilting and many things are new to me but I think the binding kit would be something I will really need.
I have never heard of Flatter spray…have all the rest of her fabulous notions (well, not the finger tips because I have a longarm), but I think I need to add more candy to my stash!!!
It would have to be the Elmer's School Glue. I never thought of using it before.
Flatter spray is new to me.
I have been planning to make a binding kits for a couple of weeks. The quilter tips and flatter spray are new to me. Oh, and Swedish Fish are unknown to me too!
The round spinning mat is new to me! It looks like it spins so smoothly!
I have the Matilda 's Own spinning mat and love it for blocks!
I like the 6 in by 14 inch cutting ruler by Omnigrip!
Quilter Tips and Flatter are new to me.
Seam Fix is new to me; I definitely would benefit from the ripped thread eraser!
Quilter tips and Sweedish fish are new to me.

Great ideas and oh so colorful. I am a spray starch gal and am eager to try the flatter spray.
I had never seen the quilting tips. I don't like using the glove so I am interested in trying them out.
I'm excited to make the binding clip holder! I have them all over the house and camper this summer! Haha awesome video! So love to watch them all!
Love the he binding bag and I will be making one!!!! She makes it look easy.
Oh the spinning cutting mat! That's going on the wish list – along with the snacks 🙂
Quilter tips are new to me. That spinning cutting mat is on my wish list : )
Would love to try the quilter tips.
New to me was the finger grips. I have the full – hand gloves and I would enjoy the finger grips SO much more. No more sweaty hands!
