Why Choose Us?

We are a Canadian small business company that provides crafters, quilters and long arm quilters with accurate (1/8" and 1/4") clear acrylic, custom templates and long arm rulers along with a section of fun scrapbuster projects.

Using templates allows you to maintain accurate, precise cutting every time with maximizing your fabric and time saved to have less UFO projects. 

Laser cut fabric pieces for applique and laser cut basic block designs for faster piecing for the quilter/crafter.

I'm very thankful for SewClever,  I was working on a quilt pattern that had odd angles. Thankfully I was able to order templates that took the guesswork out of my fabric cutting and trimming.  The result was a huge time saver and no fabric was "used in a dog bed donation".

I love making Emmaline Bags' NCW and Retreat Bag 2.0 in both sizes.  Having  SewClever's templates for these great projects has enabled me to cut out all the pieces with efficiency and accuracy.  Very valuable and worth every penny in my time saved.

About Us

Lauri Remin

Quilter and Designer

Lauri grew up with a mom that "taught" her how to sew by "unstitching" for her. At a young age she made crafty things from her mom's leftovers of fabric, yarn for knitting, sewing clothes for dolls and as she grew older, she was often in the garage helping her dad build projects. Her paternal side of the family gave her the ability to make and create.  Her grandfather was a blacksmith and used his abilities for his trade and her grandmother who could craft as well both passed their abilities down to their children and grandchildren.

She received her mom's 1957 Elna when her mom purchased a new machine and Lauri used this Elna for many years, making garments for herself and her children.  Similar to many other quilters, after making garments, as her children got older, she entered into the realm of the quilting world.  After purchasing a long arm machine in 2011 she soon became frustrated not finding the type of long arm ruler(s) she wanted, so she started developing and creating her own long arm ruler designs which she made for herself and other quilt friends that either wanted quilting patterns made into templates or her designed long arm rulers.

Whether creating long arm rulers, templates, she has also digitized her friends's drawings into digitized designs for their long arm's computer to stitch out on their quilts. 

She enjoys making quilting, "Faster, Easier and Better" for her friends and their projects so they are able to take them from start to finish with less UFO holdbacks.  Templates are a reliable tool to add to your quilting toolbox to enable you to cut multiple layers of fabric, accurately resulting in optimizing your fabric and time.

Since her first English Paper Piecing project she started in August 2018 (which she designed a template to be able to cut over 100, 3/4" hexi's at one time), to starting to design patterns and learning to laser cut fabric into precuts, appliqué shapes and designs, keeps her dreaming of endless possibilities.
