I read this information in a digest today and thought it needs to be shared. There is a shortage of Steam a Seam by The Warm Company. Here is an explanation:
The problem was created when the European paper company that made the
paper for Steam a Seam decided to no longer produce that paper.
is researching several other release papers and feel they are
selecting a suitable replacement. They are reluctant to give a time
when Steam a Seam will be available for shipping until that paper
A group of quilters was in today and bought some because they are having a hard time finding it. If you are thinking of a project and need some, get it when you see it as it may be a while before you see it again.

We added to our selection of Accuquilt Studio dies this spring. There is a rughooking picnic down the road in Poplar Hill Park this June. We've been invited to bring the Studio and dies to the picnic to cut wool for them. We ordered a variety of circle dies so I added a couple of other dies to the order too.
In the photo, you can see Anne's sample using the Winding Ways die. The block finishes 8" and requires a square at least 11.5" in size for the die. It would be easier with 12" squares. Customers are welcome to book a time to bring in their prepared squares for die cutting. The Studio can cut 10 layers or squares at a time. So we can die cut 80 squares in under 10 minutes for $10. That makes a 64" by 80" quilt top so add some sashing and/or borders to make it the desired size.
We have a 4" finished tumbler die waiting to try as well as an apple core that is cut 5 1/2" by 6 3/4".
We are ready to cut wool pennies for you. In the photo you can see the dies for 1" circles cut 16 at a time, 2" circles cut 8 at a time and a peek of the 3" circles cut 9 at a time. We can cut 1.5", 2.5", 3.5" and 5.5" circles.
Let us die cut your stash so you can focus on sewing.
