Gifts For The Sewist
Fabric, patterns, notions, oh my! There are so may options to consider when purchasing that perfect gift for the beginning sewist or advanced seamstress. Tools of the trade and sewing machines and serger options are a dizzing array of never before heard terms and descriptions.
When you are stymied about what to get, a gift card is always the best option. When tucket into a package with some gorgeous fabric, fun buttons, or a great gadget, a gift card says “I’m thinking about what you love, and want to make sure you love it.”
Everyone loves Amazon, and their gift cards make perfect anytime-gifts for hobbyists and every other family, friend, and neighbor.
Joann’s gift cards are perfect for the sewist in you life, or any other hobbyist.
Minerva Crafts is an UK based fabric shop that offers interesting fabrics at an affordable price, and the shipping is reasonable too. It would make a unique gift, introducing your sewist to a new online outlet.
Vintage sewing patterns, sewing kits, and finished projects are available through Etsy. Of course, my favorite shop is my own Sewing With Sandi. You can find popular Minky scarf sewing kits where you can create your own super cozy wrap-around Minky scarf.
Tools Of The Trade
Rowenta Steam Iron – This one is the updated version of mine and it’s purple! If you are going to invest in anything after your sewing machine – this is it! It keeps your seams crisp and gives your garments a professional look.
Kai Scissors – These 12″ scissors will make cutting your fabric a breeze – no paper for these puppies!
Rolling Sewing Machine Bag – Transporting your machine back and forth to class is rough on your machine. A bag like this makes it easier – Don’t forget to sink your needle into a scrap of fabric and put the presserfoot down when moving your machine!
The Ottlite Floor Lamp is perfect for spotlighting your project. It offers you the opportunity to set up your sewing corner anywhere and have it well lit. Trying to thread a needle in dim light is completely frustrating.
Let’s Talk Small Thoughtful Gifts
Minerva has an entire section devoted to gifts for your favorite sewists. You can browse through the section, choose a small item, add a gift card, and boom! You are done searching for that perfect gift!
Great Machines To Get You Sewing
Brother Sewing Machine – No list is complete, without my favorite sewing machine; perfect for beginners and intermediate sewists.
Brother Serger – Many of you have asked about a serger. I have several, and my Brother is a real workhorse.

Great list. I need some of these items.
We used to go to Jo Ann’s a lot when we were little! Thank goodness I know sewing basics!
Great suggestions! I remember using a serger in home-ec in junior high. I always wish I had one!
Time to get ready! I love Christmas time!
I’ve had a Rowenta (on the recommendation of a coworker) for years, and I love it!!
They are the best!
Sewing classes would make an excellent, thoughtful gift! I wish I had learned to sew better.
Actually many of my students are retired and have just taken up sewing.
Great list! I always love getting gift cards- can get fabric and other materials with that!
I’m so impressed! You have so much energy. Awesome.
My 10 year old is asking to learn how to sew and I have zero sewing skills – I never thought of looking at sewing lessons….great suggestions.
Great ideas for the sewer on my list! Thanks for the suggestions, it can be hard to come up with unique ideas.
What sewing machine would you recommend for a beginning quilter?
Sandra, I would recommend the Brother CS6000 that is in the post. It’s a great little machine, easy to use, and a good price. I use them in my studio for my students.
Great Christmas sewing list! I wish I had some space for a sewing machine, I sewed a lot in my teens!
Great suggestions! I can’t wait to get a sewing machine one of these days.
Wow this is a great list of sewing gift ideas! Although I don’t sew, several in my family do and I’m always looking for ideas for them! Thanks for the tips!
Oh my gosh! Christmas wasn’t quite on my radar, but tis the season to start thinking of gift ideas. Your list is sure to please seamstresses at all levels!
My husband has been wanting a sewing machine but I have had no idea what kind to get him- this helps!!
Now this is a list I need to share with my partner in crime 🙂

Great tips! Christmas will be here before we know it!!
Great article! I used to sew years ago, but don’t even own a sewing machine now. Not sure if I will pursue this hobby again, but if so, I know where to go – your blog!
Bring on Christmas! My shopping is nearly done so that I can just relax and enjoy!
Perfect for the seamstress in the family! I used to sew but I haven’t in years. My mother and niece do though.
This is an interesting idea for sure!
