Whether you’re learning to sew, designing your home sewing room or setting up a professional sewing studio, there are certain sewing products and equipment that you can’t afford to be without.
- Your sewing machine: Choosing a new sewing machine can be a daunting process, especially if you are new to the craft or are replacing a piece of equipment that has become outdated. A good idea for finding the best sewing machine is to choose an established brand, as they will guarantee the quality of their machines and parts. They will also be able to best assist you with servicing or repairing your machine if needed.
- Haberdashery: Your haberdashery covers everything from measuring tapes and bobbins to pins, scissors, spools of thread and even sewing kits. Having a well-stocked haberdashery means that any sewing or quilting project is within your reach and that you won’t have to keep breaking focus to try find the right tools and accessories at the store.
- Overlocker: An overlocker is a piece of equipment that is attached to your sewing machine, allowing you to quickly and neatly edge, hem and seam your project. These attachments can do a variety of stitches, including heavy-duty edging and decorative stitching.
- Ironing equipment: Having a steam press is the perfect way to finish off your latest sewing project, whether it’s a dress, a new duvet or new curtains. Rather than struggling over a regular steam iron, big projects are quickly and easily pressed into shape, ready for action!
