Are you ready for Christmas? Looking for giftspiration? Or struggling what to ask Santa for?
Don't fret! We've done all the hard work by creating the perfect list of gift ideas for sewers. It's full of all those useful items we discuss during our various workshops complied in one place with links to stockists. The list includes low to high budget items of the brands we like and trust.
Have fun buying or receiving!
A great quality but significantly cheaper and 10 times more on the reel than the other big name.
Metric PatternMaster Pro, an all-in-one pattern design tool, a must-have for making and adapting your own patterns.
One of my favourite well designed pattern brands and drafted in two size ranges including two cup sizes!
One of the best pattern cutting books that has been around for years.
High quality chalk that marks fabric well without having to press to hard.
It's like an Aladdin's Cave and so lucky to have it down the road from our Chorlton Studio.
Not at all designed for marking fabric but ideal when you need a finer or darker line than chalk and disappears when you iron over it.
The ideal gift if you want to give (or receive!) a specific workshop with the date left open for the recipient to choose when to attend.
A good quality sewing machine needle is essential for good results and I would recommend these from Schmetz Germany.
This is the one you will have used on our workshops, you will never regret buying one!
You will always find these in our classroom (left handed option too) for a quality cut.
Attaches magnetically to your needle plate as a guide to straight and uniform seams.
This is the one you will have used on our workshops, it's got everything you need so you will never outgrow it and sews like a dream.
Invaluable for marking straight lines and 90 degree corners when you are pattern cutting. It's a bulk buy but cheaper that way.
So useful to wear your pin cushion on your wrist then you will also have a pin at hand while you move around your sewing area.
Last but definitely not least, our Gift Vouchers are redeemable against all Ministry of Craft Workshops, so perfect for anyone with a bit of creative flair or as a gift to request for yourself! Look forward to seeing you on one of our workshops in the New Year!
