Ft Wayne, IN, March 25, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- Lapel Stick is a new quilting, sewing, and craft notion that is making a big impact in the industry by committing both product and a portion of their proceeds to several charities that have been impacted by the current economy. Part of the company’s mandate is to create shared success by raising awareness of and supporting the important causes that their customers volunteer for and support. It is also the company’s hope to inspire other businesses, manufacturers, and wholesalers to build on the philosophy of shared success and create a sustainable program of giving back.
About the Product: Lapel Stick eliminates the need for baste stitching, taping, spraying, and pinning on fabrics. It goes on clear, dries in seconds, and will not damage your fabrics. This unique water-soluble, non-toxic, and acid-free adhesive is safe to use on cottons, wool, leather, felts, polyester, blends, linen, felt, nylons, and silks.

Over the next 12 months their goal is to be able to donate thousands of products to individuals and groups that are volunteering their time to make the world a better place.
“We received the 50 lapel sticks last week in time for our meeting. 25 of them were snatched up instantly, and I am sure we can use all of them. You may have noticed on our website that we have a special project making tactile quilts and weighted "lap aprons" for visually-impaired children or children with other disabling conditions. The people making squares for the tactile quilts are especially excited, because they place lots of trim on their quilt squares. Children with visual impairments are stimulated to explore the quilts to find matching patterns, etc. Our members believe the lapel sticks will be a great way to hold the rickrack, lace, etc., in place while someone is sewing these multi-step squares. Thank you." Larky Hansen, Chairperson - Quilts From Caring Hands
