My readers frequently ask me for recommendations about sewing machines, fabric and sewing tools. I could talk on and on, day after day, about my favorite products, but alas, that’s not very practical. So instead I’ve decided to create a series of posts called Cucicucicoo Recommends to answer these questions. Be sure to check out the rest of the series here!
I already wrote a few months ago about how to choose your first sewing machine, and today I want to talk about what I consider to be the best sewing tools for both beginner and advanced sewers that will make your sewing projects easier and more professional-looking.
Of course it’s of utmost importance to know the basics of sewing to create fantastic sewn clothing and objects, so if you’re just starting to learn, I highly suggest you take a look at my free Learn to Machine Sew course. You can often tell the skill of a seamstress by the quality of her work. However, certain tools and notions can make certain techniques so much easier to master, and give an edge to those who use them.
If you’ve ever set foot in a fabric shop, you’ll have noticed that there are about a gazillion sewing supplies. Some are tools that you really truly need to sew while others are optional items that you can do without, but that will make your life much easier. In each category I will explain which supplies are absolutely necessary and others that you can wait to procure if you’re just starting out sewing, but that I do suggest getting at some point or another.
So enough chit chat, let’s get right down to the Cucicucicoo-recommended best sewing tools! Read more
