Designer Joi’s Original

Chubby Tailor’s Board™

(A Designer Joi Exclusive)


The Ultimate Sewing and Pressing Notion


This oversized chubby tailor’s board is patterned after the board Joi learned to tailor on over 25 years ago and custom made in the Midwest. Traditional tailor’s boards are narrow with a small work space.


This chubby size was specially designed for the Tailor’s Shop she worked in beginning at age 14 and she has used this ever since. You will love the chubby shape as you press hems, mark hems and all areas of a garment, shape shoulders and more. Also great for Travel. Truly a must have for any Sewing Studio. Joi uses hers daily and is excited to bring this to your studio. Size approx: 25x8x6

35” 45”60” and 120”  wide Cotton Muslin by the Bolt

Bolts of draping and sewing muslin are a staple in Designer Joi’s studio and a necessity for any sewing room. This is not the hobby muslin you find in mass retailers, but on-grain  quality muslin on a roll. Various widths are available in quantities as low as 25 yards up to 100 yard bolts or more. This muslin is specially sourced personally by Designer Joi and what she uses in her studio to drape patterns, sew fit samples, interline garments, back quilts and more.


A frequent request when Joi teaches draping is to purchase muslin by the roll. The advantage is you don’t have horrible creases like folded and carded muslin and you can order many lengths and even weights from very fine light weight to heavy stiff muslin. Plus, because Joi buys in bulk she can bring affordable prices to you her students!
