Newest "Quilting" Notion

    A new "sewing notion" has appeared at our quilting get-togethers. TervisTumblers are the newest notion for our Silver Thimble Quilters. These tumblers keep drinks hot or cold and don't leave moisture all over our sewing tables. Many different styles have appeared near individual sewing machines. At our Summer Stitch-In, my sewing partner to my left was Jane, a Florida Gator fan. She was defending her corner from my LSU obsessiveness.  
    Other colleges are often represented like Georgia, Auburn, and Kentucky.

Tumblers with coordinating tops and initials - C is for Cindy.
Philosophies of life
Memories from quilting retreats
Things that are liked

My family has purchased Tervis Tumblers for years. When visiting a cousin who once lived in West Palm Beach, he took us to their store where we began our love of all things Tervis. They can often be found at Bed, Bath and Beyond and stores that have gift items. Perhaps, my favorite thing about Tervis Tumblers is that they have a life-time warranty. I have mailed back tumbers that have leaked or have moisture between the layers. I received brand new tumbers to replace each tumbers that I returned. They also happen to make great gifts for non-quilters. My brother received a New Orleans Saints tumber for his Christmas gift this year. He must have liked it for he warned his kids, "This one is mine."
Happy Sewing!
