Thread: What in your box?

    Default What in your box?

    Your sewing box that is?

    I'm wanting to take up sewing as a hobby and wondering what essentials will I need in my sewing kit to get me started?

    Thanks Ladies!

    A 'quick unpick', also known as 'my friend'.

    ruler, pens, chalk/pencil to write on material.

    (scissors, measuring tape, pins, thread are definites)

    Totally agree on sharp pair of scissiors for cutting your material only. Also a wide variety of threads, in different colours and thicknesses, so you wont be caught out when you dont have the right shade/colour/strength. A cutting mat and roller cutter, ruler, and the sewing machines instructions!
