The Sewing Enthusiast Christmas Gift Guide

Gift Guide Review

Are you struggling to think of things you want to find under your Christmas tree this year? Or maybe your loved one is a sewist and you’ve no idea what to buy them?
Either way, you’ve come to the right place!
Let me introduce you to my (very subjective) list of must-have items for sewing enthusiasts that you can add to your Christmas list…

Things To Help You Improve Your Sewing Skills

I know we all love YouTube for comprehensive sewing tutorials and Google can immediately help us with a solution to our current sewing drama. However as a self-taught sewist I believe that it’s nice to have some extra resources when it comes to improving our sewing skills. Also being a self-confessed book addict, I just had to start my gift list with some of my favourite sewing and fashion books.

sewing books1. THE MAKER'S ATELIER: The Essential Collection 2. The Curated Closet: Discover Your Personal Style and Build Your Dream Wardrobe 3. The Palmer Pletsch Complete Guide to Fitting  4. Tilly and the Buttons: Stretch!: Make yourself comfortable sewing with knit fabrics 5. Breaking the Pattern: A modern way to sew 6. A Beginner’s Guide to Sewing with Knitted Fabric

If books are not your thing you can ask Father Christmas for more ‘ hands on gift’ such as a sewing class. It can be face to face workshop at your local fabric shop or an online class. Sewing classes are a great way to learn a new skill or tackle more complex project such as jeans or a coat. Tilly and the Buttons, Sew Over It and Craftsy all run online classes which you can join from your own home (pyjamas and a glass of wine are optional).

Pretty Sewing Tools

We all need sewing tools, but some accessories are more desired than others. Sure, a tin of baked beans makes good pattern weight but hey, wouldn’t miniature Oreo cookie weight make your pattern cutting more enjoyable? I love pretty things; I believe that just because something is practical it doesn’t mean it should be ugly. Ugly things make me miserable as my sewing time is my happy time so I want to be surrounded with beautiful things! Cute sewing tools are like scented candles. Not necessary but they create the mood.
