Welcome to Cinderella's Blog
Perhaps a better Blog name would be Journal or News. Who knew ”Blog" would become a traditional word back in 2009 when I started the Thread Candy Shoppe? The good news is “Quilting” will always be universally recognized no matter what language we translate. We’ll still be searching for creative ways to express quilt art and new locations to shop for essentials. We desire inspirational instructors, exciting fabrics and especially quality THREADS—the glue! Our support network of quilters through satellite groups, guilds, and communities is vibrant (especially here, on Vancouver Island, BC). Join me as I continue to share how-to articles on Thread, techniques, product features and things of general interest to curious & resourceful quilters, fibre artists & stitchers! ...Cindy Scraba

The Lap App Portable Table!

Have you ever wished for a portable table when hand stitching, appliqué, hand quilting, assembling hexagons, or crafting?Joyce Haskins is an appliquér herself and is the inventor of the Lap App© and proudly made in USA.

I’m always delighted when my shipments of Lap Apps arrive and I see array of fun fabric covers--they’re always different! There can be prints with sewing notions or fabrics that mimic pieced, traditional or modern quilt blocks. The quality and workmanship are consistent and guaranteed.

Under the slip cover is a sandpaper worksheet for tracing designs with better control and accuracy. Plus, there’s another slip cover for ironing. All well planned adding value with every feature.

Notice the handy dowel pegs tucked under the table for thread spools and a magnet for threaders or needles. There’s even a pocket for scissor storage.

The lightweight wood is solid, smooth, and strong. The adjustment knobs underneath accommodate various tilt and table height positions.

Customer Feedback:

Now when I appliqué my neck and shoulders are relaxed. It’s no longer painful to be seated for long periods. Thank you so much for sharing this product with us!

Yes, you may quote me about my love of the LapApp at anytime as it has been a true blessing for me to use. No wrist or back pain when doing applique or sashiko as I can sit back in my chair and my wrists are supported and I always know where my needle , thread and scissors are. It is an extremely well organized unit. Now, I love that it allows me to sit comfortably in my recliner to read.

Another plus about the way the LapApp is made is that we can easily adjust the position of it to our individual needs. Also , it is lightweight so no pressure on the thighs. So many positive things to say about it. Pat.

I agree! another gal mentioned her hubby did the math from a carpenter’s point of view to reproduce one or come up with a facsimile and quickly announced she got a good deal, LOL…we can rest our case ;-) take care.
