Christmas Sewing Gifts

Christmas Gift Guide

It's so great when someone has a hobby like sewing and you can give them a Christmas gift they truly want to receive - right? Only problem is you need to know what to buy. For anyone out there who is scratching their head (or who wants to help someone scratching their head with a few subtle hints and a gentle nudge!) read on for our favourite Christmas sewing gifts.

The Simplicity Vintage Range

This selection of pocket friendly, super stylish and quirky sewing themed goodies was sent by the sewing Gods for exactly this moment! Prices range from just £1.99 to £18.50 and you can choose from beautiful sewing themed bookmarks, fridge magnets, mugs bags and more.

We love this handy storage tin for squirrelling away buttons, notions or even sewing snacks! No one will ever know your secrets and your sewing room will look oh so pretty.

This stylish tote bag is a great way to show the world your love of sewing and reduce your plastic bag usage.

Madeira Seamfix Stitch Ripper

Ok so pretty much everyone who is into sewing has at least one seam ripper, but we'll bet they don't have one quite like this. So many of our die hard sewing friends were raving about these when they discovered them.

Not only is there a tool for ripping those seams out, there are also innovative thread removers on each end. Simply drag them across those annoying stray threads left behind by unpicking to quickly and easily remove them and save you a whole bunch of time.

Prym Tailor's Ham & Sleeve Roll

In our experience one of the most common sewing tools sewists manage without is a tailor's ham and/or sleeve roll. It's true, when you first start sewing you can manage without them, however, if you're keen to achieve a truly professional finish on your handmade garments these pressing aids are a must.

They provide a firm, curved surface to press seams and allow you to mould and shape areas of the garment as required.

The ham is ideal for princess seams, darts and sleeve heads and the sleeve roll is useful for sleeve seams, trouser seams and collars.

They also have a checked wool fabric on one side for pressing fabrics with a deeper pile and a smooth fabric on the other side for pressing other fabric types.

What a great pressie for any sewing fanatic.

Leopard Print Sewing Machine Bag

I mean who knew a sewing machine bag could be so on trend?! Don't let your sewing machine bag cramp your style when going on holiday or to sewing classes and choose one of our fab designs to complement your own personal style.
