My mom always says “if you have the right tools for the job, the job goes well“. I couldn’t agree more. When I comes to sewing, having the right tools is important to success.
As I find new items to share, I will list them here.
Stitch Fix – I love getting a box of clothes delivered to my door every month.
My Bernette Serger is such a workhorse! I don’t know what I would do without it.
If you are sewing with Leather, Suede or velvet, you need a teflon foot!
My sewing buddy has a machine that makes the best buttonholes and it’s only $149.99. This Brother Sewing Machine is the best machine for beginners, it has great features, is easy to use, and the price is on target!
I couldn’t believe it when my daughter didn’t have a small sewing kit to attach a button on her husbands shirt! Where did I go wrong??
