Here is a list of all the sewing supplies I used in my sewing room when I got started…and still use today!
I love using these sewing notions and so I figure I should share them with you!
Just click on the image to see more about each item.
Must Have Beginner Sewing Supplies:
QUALITY Fabric Scissors
Best Snips for Rag Quilts
I love my Rotary Cutter
Water Soluble Pencils
I love the angled lines on this one.
Self Healing Cutting Mat
Soft Tailors Measuring Tape
Get used to using a seam ripper
2 1/4″ Extra Long Magic Pins
Magic/Wonder Clips are the new Pins!
A Bobbin Keeper Ring
Sewing Stiletto is a VITAL finger saver. Especially for beginners.
Magnetic Pin Catcher
Or a Pin Cushion
Fabric Turner (helps turn narrow projects right side out!)
Must Have Quilting Notions:
1/4″ Sewing Foot (make sure you get one that fits your machine)
Many Quilters sew with 50-weight Cotton Thread. But as a beginner using an all purpose thread is still perfectly fine! Aurifil Cotton Thread is a very popular.
A Walking Foot is VITAL when it comes to quilting. Again, make sure you get one that fits your specific sewing machine.
A Rotating Cutting Mat for easy trimming.
The Best Quilting Rulers to start with:
Creative Grids Rulers have built in grip! I LOVE using these.
This Stropology Ruler lets you make lots of cuts without moving the fabric.
6 Square Quilt Rulers by Creative Grids
60 Degree Triangle Quilting Ruler
15 Degree Triangle Quilting Ruler
