Sewing Gifts - Great Choices

Updated on December 09, 2016

Great Choices in Sewing Gifts

If you're planning to purchase sewing gifts, you're on the right page! :) Sewing is a passion that has remained consistent for me in my nearly 50 years of threading needles. I was REALLY young when I started, okay? lol

On this page you'll find sewing gifts for those with all levels of sewing experience. I've put a lot of thought into every item featured. Many of these items I already own and use myself. I'll be adding to this page as I discover new sewing gifts I feel are great choices.

Starting with sewing thread......you can never have too many. Black and white thread is always a great choice, but you can fill a basket or container with spools of all colors and gift it to someone or keep it for yourself. Why not? ;)

Great Choices for Experienced Sewers

Even though I've been sewing a long time, I forget sometimes to take a look and see what may be new on the market to make my sewing a little easier. These bobbin mates (pictured above) I recently found online keep my bobbin and coordinating spool of thread stored together, so I don't have to dig around to find the bobbin I need.

Also in the picture is my scissors sharpener by Friskars. I use them frequently to keep my sewing shears sharp.

Many of my sewing projects benefit from the use of these awesome clips from Clover! In fact, sometimes I will start and complete a sewing task without ever using a straight pin. These clips come in jumbo green as well as regular sized red clips. You gotta try them!

I LOVE this sewing machine! This Janome Magnolia 7318 Sewing Machine is by far the sewing machine that has given me the most bang for my buck. Many different materials (including window screen) and projects like a set of lined flocked damask curtain panels with formal tie backs and a coordinating valance, blind weighted hems and mitered corners have been sewn by me on this machine.

It's a beauty and I am recommending it to anyone who has ever sewn one stitch on a sewing machine or one million. THIS is the sewing machine to get!

Where I Sew

This is where I sew in our tiny cottage. It's not ideal, but it works for me. However, there ARE lots of sewing tables and accessories. I've got my eye on one sewing table in particular...... :)

Dritz Deluxe Seam Ripper

Anyone who sews WILL need one of these, I guarantee it! Does exactly the job it's supposed to do and it does it well. :) Great choice!

 

My Choice of Sewing Table - On my Wish List!

Household Essentials Sewing and Ironing Accesory Pad, 16-Inch by 32-Inch
Household Essentials Sewing and Ironing Accesory Pad, 16-Inch by 32-Inch

I WANT one of these! (I hope my family is reading this!) Never having to get up to press a seam AND it organizes and keeps my machine from sliding.

 

For All Sewists...

Anyone who sews needs these basics:

  • a sewing machine
  • sewing scissors (a good pair of pinking shears is awesome too!)
  • pincushion
  • straight pins (optional: Wonder Clover Clips mentioned above)
  • quality measuring tape
  • thread, of course
  • a good thimble for hand sewing
  • but most of all, it's a fact anyone who sews will need a seam ripper. :)

Speaking of Sewing Gifts..... - What is YOUR favorite sewing gift you have given or received?

      Well... when I first came to Kuwait I didn't have a sewing machine at all, and you know what? I used to hand stitch everything... then after a while I got one of those ancient antique Singer machines... now I have a more advance model, but nothing like the ones that are out today... :) Still works though! Blessed!

      I've got some antique sterling thimbles and a beautiful 18th century sewing "bird" that's actually shaped like a dragon! Starting a collection of antique sewing tools for an avid stitcher is a great thing to do. I've also got my walls covered in old and wonderfully decorative Mennonite quilts from my area of Pennsylvania.
