Pre-Cuts: Charm Packs
We carry an ever changing selection of charm packs by Moda.
A Charm Pack is a collection of pre-cut coordinating 5 1/2-inch squares of an entire collection of fabric by the same designer. Usually, these packs have 25 to 50 different pieces in the bundle.
They are convenient, and the perfect size for smaller projects. Although, larger projects are easily accomplished by using multiple charm packages. Being pre-cut also means that some of the prep work has already been done - mainly the measuring and cutting of fabric. They're also all the exact same size. This means, better uniformity in projects.
They come in a wide variety of wonderful prints, from babies to floral. They come in cottons and flannels. They are great for quilts, totes, place mats, table runners, Christmas stockings...
They usually cost between $8 - $15 Canadian, it all depends on how many charms are in the pack and the designer.
There are a lot of great books available, designed specifically to work with charm packs. Check out our book section for a taste of some of what we carry or drop in to our store to view the full selection. It literally changes week to week.
