Sewing is not just stitching fabrics together or repairing torn ones, it’s an art. And like every art requires tools, so does sewing. It’s not just a game of a sewing machine, cloth and thread. Learning and mastering stitching techniques take a lot of practice to perfect. But everyone starts somewhere, and beginners don’t usually know what accessories go along with their sewing kit and nobody is truly helpful. If you’re a beginner, looking for that much needed help, you don’t have to look any further. Here is a comprehensible list of things that are a must buy if you’re pursuing a hobby in sewing. Sewing Machines
1. Fabric Shears
Fabric shears are nothing but those large pairs of scissors that you see at the tailors’ when you’re waiting to get your torn jeans reattached. They are an essential component when it comes to cutting fabric and a shear with a sharp edge is always preferred.
2. Measuring tape
You really wouldn’t know how much to cut and how much to sew if you don’t have a measuring tape in your arsenal. If you’re sewing a special surprise for a special someone, you don’t want it to not fit or be extremely loose. A measuring tape will save you the embarrassment. Sewing Machine Supplies
3. Seam Ripper
These are better known as correction tools’. No one is born perfect at stitching, and if you’re a beginner, you’re bound to make endless mistakes in stitching a fabric. A seam ripper allows you do undo that misplaced stitch without hurting or tearing the fabric, allowing you a free restart on your mission. Embroidery Arm Foam Insert
4. Tailor’s Chalk
You were intelligent to buy a measuring tape, but the cloth itself doesn’t have scales, so how would you know where that half- inch mark was? Using markers or regular chalk may damage the cloth by seeping into it. That’s why tailor’s chalk is preferred which is water soluble and will only retain itself till it isn’t washed.
That is the basic weapons that you need to have ready to fire up that passion of sewing into you. As you progress, you will require more advanced tools which, well, we can talk about when you get there. Meanwhile, go out to the store and get these tools now and have happy day sewing.
