Roberts Crafts has two great deals for all of you looking for, well, great deals on crafting equipment and supplies.

First off is the very limited time Beat the Heat offer of 20% off your entire online regular price purchase. All you need to do to get the savings is enter the code: BEATTHEHEATW at checkout, and anything you bought that wasn’t already on sale is 20% off! Not bad. Hurry, though! The deal ends tomorrow!

But wait! That’s not all! There’s another deal available:

If you happen to live nearby a Roberts, Two Fer Tuesday has been expanded to saturdays, as well, meaning you can use two coupons in one transaction. Again, not bad at all.

And now I think I’ll go off and craft some homemade ice cream. That’s my way to beat the heat! Stay frosty, everyone.

Sugar, Sugar

Have you heard about Sugar Baby?

No, no, not Sugar Babies!

Sugar Baby.

It’s no secret that I love cooking. I love baking. But I’m new to candy making. That’s what this book is all about: sugar arts. If you, too, love playing in the kitchen and want to make pretty things out of sugar, this is the book for you.

Sure there are recipes for lollipops and taffy and the currently fashionable Parisian macarons, all of which are pretty and tasty. But you can get those recipes in a lot of places. The really cool stuff includes instructions for homemade cotton candy, barley malt skulls (the recipe that sold me on the book!) and even an amazing sugar bowl featuring swirls of red and blue food dye. Gorgeous and a perfect centerpiece for a Fourth of July party. Or use different colored dyes to make it just the thing for Easter, Christmas, Hanukkah, or a wedding reception.

If you have a reliable candy thermometer and a couple basic pieces of kitchen equipment, you can learn to make beautiful, tasty things with sugar.

What’s more, Gesine Bullock-Prada’s breezy writing style will keep you in stitches. Be sure to read all the tips. And remember, never poke caramel!

So where to get this masterpiece of sugar fun? Amazon, that’s where. Oh, and if you find yourself stuck or wanting more information, head on over to the author’s associated website,

And now if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to pull out my candy thermometer and make something sweet to share with people I love.

With the royal wedding happening in just a few more days, the appetite for tie-ins and trinkets has reached fever pitch.

All you need to do is head over to Amazon and order a copy of Knit Your Own Royal Wedding by Fiona Goble. Why not? It’s just $12.14 (reduced from $17.99), eligible for Super Saver Shipping, and a chance to knit yourself an entire herd of tiny corgis.

Come on, you know you want to.

Keep Yourself Organized

By Twistie

As any needleworker knows, keeping your tools handy and organized is as important a step as there is. Tangle threads, lost needles, and mussed charts are a nightmare.

But the good folks at Roberts Crafts have this lovely organizer created by thread giant DMC to help you keep everything in its place. It’s made of sturdy, attractive embossed denim that will live up to wear and tear on the road or at home. But inside is even better.

It’s got: 1 large pocket to hold a book, 3 tabs for stitching accessories, fabric ties to hold design materials, two pockets for scissors and similar accessories, and a section with eight fabric ties with rings to organize your thread or floss. It even comes with a felt square to keep your needles safe and handy! Just fill the portfolio and be on your way!

All this for just $27.49. Twistie sez: this is a great deal.

With twenty-five projects to get you started, introducing you to new techniques, you’ll find plenty of inspiration between the covers of this book.

Best of all, it’s on sale at Amazon for just $15.61 (regularly priced $22.95), and qualifies for Super Saver shipping.

It just doesn’t get much better than that, does it?
