If you are just getting started with your sewing collection, here are a few items worth adding to your holiday sewing wish list this year that were featured in the Holiday Showcase issue of Beg!nner Sewing Magazine

The Magic Eraser of Sewing

Doesn’t everyone hate to rip out seams? Yes! And paper piecing seams are worse because the stitch length is shorter. The Answer! The AA battery operated Easy Ripper will quickly and easily undo any seam. Simply remove any backstitching “fix”, present the seam to the recessed blades on the Ripper and you will have the job done in no time. This great gift can be purchased here for only $23.

Pre-Cut Sewing Kits!

The Hive Makery offers pre-cut sewing kits that include expertly guided video tutorials. Each sewing kit comes with all the materials you need to complete the project. These kits are perfect for beginners! Pick your kit and purchase it here.

Lift me up

These table leg extensions are the perfect affordable solution to turning a folding table into a crafting and sewing table. Table leg extensions = Crafting and sewing time extensions! Order yours here.

Roll on Over

An ergonomically friendly rotary cutter is a must have in your sewing kit. This one can cut through six layers at once, has a dual-action safety lock and an ergonomic handle for comfortable cutting; blade moves to opposite side for left-handed use.

Cut and Heal

A self-healing mat provides a cutting surface that lasts longer than others and has an easy-to-read measuring grid on both sides which means you can turn the mat over for double the usage.

Get it straight

A ruler will go nicely with your self-healing cutting mat and rotary cutter. One with an easy grip knob can make pick up and adjustment easy. This one is thick enough for use with rotary cutters and razor knives.

Trace & Erase

Marking pens that can automatically disappear, or quickly erase with water. One of each color please! And don’t forget white for those darker fabrics!

Let’s bond

Fusible fleece interfacing adds the perfect layer of softness to any craft project. Perfect for crafts such as bag construction, apparel, quilting, and home décor projects.

Nothing to Pout About

Better Not Pout Ornament Club includes twelve individual kits to make these festive dimensional ornaments.

When you join the club, you’ll receive 2 kits each month which include all pre-fused laser cut fabric pieces, pre-cut fabrics for the stocking, lining, and backing, pre-cut double-sided fusible fleece, and coordinating buttons. In all, you’ll receive 52 buttons (including some handmade)!

About Joan Mantini

After several years of being the Facebook page owner at Beginner Sewing, I noticed there was a desperate need to have a single go-to spot for members to be able to find answers to their common questions, get some useful tips & tricks, as well as find reputable places to purchase sewing products online. Taking my role as a trade publication editor by day, and combining it with my knowledge of frequently requested beginner sewing advice, I created www.beginner-sewing.com. An outlet that gives new sewists a free digital magazine geared for entry level sewing as an extra bonus!
