18 PATTERN WEIGHTS LTD Button Shaped Pattern Weights designed and made in Britain make an ideal gift. Inspired by the BBC’s The Great British Sewing Bee , these newly created button pattern weights are available in eight lovely colour choices and are individually boxed. Pattern weights are handy tools that keep pattern pieces in place to make sure you’re cutting your fabric as accurately as possible. Faster to apply, remove, and adjust than pins, pattern weights won’t bunch the fabric or leave pin-prick holes in your textiles or patterns. They’re a great product to use in conjunction with delicate fabrics you don’t want to mark, or use with thick textiles you can’t stick a pin through. Pattern Weights, also known as fabric weights or sewing and dressmaking weights, are the ideal solution to making perfect cuts every time. +44 (0)1872 571 200 LAVINIA STAMPS Lavinia Stamps is delighted to introduce this exclusive zippered ring binder for your stamps and more!
