Award-winning brand wins “Best Sneak Peek” for exciting showcase of new product that makes stuffing softies easier than ever
LAKE FOREST, Calif. (Oct. 31, 2017) – Sizzix®, the market leader and pioneer of creative die-cutting products for makers around the globe, is pleased to announce that it has won the prestigious “Best Sneak Peak” honors for its diorama presentation of its all-new Stuffing Tool at the International Quilt Market, October 28-30, 2017 at the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston, Texas.
The winning diorama depicted a softie hospital patient in bed awaiting care from a nearby softie doctor. The scene was completed by signage reading, “The Sizzix Stuffing Tool—The Cure for All Kinds of Stuff.”
The Sizzix Stuffing Tool was designed to make stuffing softies easier than ever. The 10" long Stuffing Tool uses a unique crown-style tip to spin stuffing into shape for easy placement into the area needing filling. For added ease, the Stuffing Tool reaches cleanly into the narrowest of spaces within a softie without removing any stuffing when withdrawn.
The Sizzix entry was selected as the winner from a crowded field of nearly 100 entrants. At Quilt Market Booth #722, judges awarded Sizzix Representatives a plaque and a ribbon to recognize their accomplishment.
“We are so excited to receive this honor,” said Sizzix Quilt Manager Linda Nitzen. “Our unique and fun presentation is the perfect example of the imaginative softies you can create with the Sizzix Stuffing Tool.”
The Sizzix Stuffing Tool will be available in quilt stores around the country starting in December 2017. For more information, visit www.sizzix.com/home.
