Pink Olfa cutting mats (£22.34)

These pink self healing Olfa cutting mats are perfect for use with your favourite rotary cutter. Imperial markings on one side and metric on the other make it easy for any sewist to draw and cut accurately. Plus it’s pink. Need we say more?!

Clappers (£24)

These hardwood tailor’s point presser and clappers are handmade by a local craftsman. The user can achieve a truly professional finish to their handmade garments by using the point to press crisp corners and using the flat underside to maximise the effects of pressing and to flatten bulky seams. Saville Row has nothing on you!



Rainbow Scissors  (£17.54)

A good quality pair of scissors is a must for any sewist. Even better if they’re this gorgeous rose gold colour and come with a matching thimble and stork design embroidery scissors. Pretty and practical they tick all the Christmas gift boxes.
