    I just joined QCA and love watching their videos. What Fons & Porter notions do you like and use often?

    I don't care for F&P notions. They are to expensive & I usually have a good alternative tool/notion already.

    I have purchased two items from them...both broke. One was a seam ripper (I emailed them and actually got a free replacement) and the other was the mechanical pencil. Now I'm a bit cautious of purchasing anything from them.

    I love their Marking pencil, and the red holder that holds the seam ripper so you can use it without holding it, and I have a few of their templates. Enjoy QVC. I am going to do it one of these days. I watch their free episodes now. Enjoy.

    I have a few of their plastic rulers that I like so far. I also LOVE that tin thing with the holes in the top-you put thread inside and put the thread through the hole and you can hand sew without your thread rolling all over the place. The top is magnetic too so it holds onto needles. I've only bought their stuff with a coupon or on sale. Oh I have the gloves too, but I cut off the tip of the index finger and thumb so I can grab things without taking them off.

    btw I'm a member at QCA too. They have a nice message board and we just finished a fun jelly roll quilt along.

    Agreed! They have a notion for everything and 90% are unnecessary!

    I have the mechanical pencil for marking quilt tops. I love it. I got it from recommendations here. I also have the gloves for FMQ. That is it.

    I have a few of their rulers that I am happy with but they really do go overboard. Like Kitsie said 90% are unnecessary. People are all the time trying to come up with money making products. Can't blame them but......lol
    Also they are very expensive but it just depends on how bad you want an item & if you are willing to pay
