Featured Notions
Slimline 3 Table Lamp
Taking the original Slimline to another level, the third generation Daylight Slimline, comes with superb additional features. The new aluminium shade emits a brighter light with better diffusion while the four step dimmer allows brightness control. The clamp has been re-designed to be even less obtrusive and comes in brushed steel for a sleek look and feel.

A great gift for the sewer, crafter, desk, or a workshop!
Four brightness levels.

You will wonder how you ever did
without it!




Also available the original Slimline.
Fusa-Weezers
Fusa-Weezers have very fine tips that let you lift your fused shape without distorting your edges. They are made of surgical steel and allow you to hold your pieces as you apply a little heat.
Also great for picking out those little pieces of stabilizer!

Bosch Universal Plus Mixer and Accessories
available at Bill's Sewing!
The Bosch Universal reputation of quality began in 1952. You can rely on your Bosch Mixer.
The Bosch kitchen mixer is uniquely designed with its motor beneath the bowl, making it more compact and lightweight.
Dual wire whips create a triple whipping action and allow you to whip as little as one egg white into over a cup of meringue. The cookie paddles are perfect for creaming butter and mixing medium to thick batters and cookie doughs. The cake paddles thoroughly mix pourable batters or light mixtures without incorporating too much air. Ideal for quick breads, muffins, and pancakes which can become tough and chewy if over-mixed.
The heavy-duty dough hook is designed to mimic the motions of hand kneading to stretch, tuck, and fold the dough for maximum gluten development, kneading 100% of the dough every 4 rotations around the bowl. With the included dough hook extender, you can knead as little as one loaf of bread (3 cups flour) or up to 14 1-pound loaves, with either white or whole grain flour. The powerful belt-driven transmission delivers adequate torque to knead light or heavy loads without overheating or bogging down. The dough hook can mix up to 34 dozen cookies in a batch.
Four suction feet on the base grip the mixer to your counter for optimum stability. Choose from 4 speeds with pulse. Convenient cord storage. Many optional accessories and attachments are available to purchase separately for increased functionality, such as a blender, meat grinder, citrus juicer, food processor, slicer/shredder, pasta maker, and more.


Many extra accessories available. Pictured are Blender and Slicer/Shredder
