Mistyfuse Zips

We have added many new products to the clearance section of our Website Shop!  All of these items are first quality, still available products that we just have decided not to haul to shows any longer.  Check out the new Mistyfuse Zips!  You can use these thin strips of Mistyfuse to make your own fusible batting.  Fuse your quilt tops instead of pin basting!  You can really save some bucks if you shop not to take advantage of limited quantities of these great items!
