Twenty-two innovative designs enhance quilting product line for Sizzix
LAKE FOREST, Calif. (May 15, 2014) – Quilters will soon be able to enjoy fresh appliqué and piecing design offerings from Sizzix® for its fabi™ Personal Fabric Cutter and Big Shot™ Pro die cutting machines. The latest 22 Bigz™ dies add versatility to the budding Sizzix quilting library and will be revealed at the International Quilt Market Show at the David Lawrence Convention Center, May 16-18, in Pittsburgh, Penn.
Featured in the new assortment are Scallop, Folded Fringe and Zig Zag strips that can be used in appliqué or piecing projects, while a Crazy Quilt design offers a modern twist on a Victorian era trend. Basic circle, hexagon, oval, flower, heart and folk-art inspired designs cut appliqué embellishments for quilts, table runners, pillowcases and other sewing projects.
The Bigz dies from Sizzix designers Jorli Perine, E.L. Smith and Stu Kilgour cut up to 8 layers of fabric at a time and are available in standard, L, XL, XL 25″ and Pro sizes (exclusively for the Big Shot Pro Machine). Completing the collection is a bird design offered in both standard and Pro die sizes from the Missouri Star Quilt Company.
“Quilters will be inspired to create splendid quilting, clothing and home décor projects with our latest piecing and appliqué dies,” said Linda Nitzen, Sizzix Sales and Marketing Quilting Manager. “Our Bigz dies cut multiple layers of fabric with the precision and ease that consumers have come to expect from Sizzix.”
Also at the show, the fabi Personal Fabric Cutter is the latest die cutting machine to join the Sizzix family, exclusively for the quilting market. With an MSRP of $119.99, the fabi is accompanied with a free Bigz die, a pair of Standard Cutting Pads and a three-year limited warranty.
