Here are the “you can never go wrong with these” gifts. You’ll likely already find all of them in every sewing room though these are the crème de la crème versions that every sewer covets. So even if you have these, you’ll want these ones instead.
A Good Pair of Scissors
Every sewer has to have a good pair of, “don’t you dare touch them”, scissors. These lovely ones from Kai will more than do the trick. And if you’re not sure about these because you’ve never heard of Kai before then seriously read those amazing five star reviews. And for this price point you’ll be wondering why you don’t already own a pair.
An Ironing Board
You’ll be so excited to stop sewing to press your seams after you have this ironing board. Its extra wide surface makes quick work of ironing large amounts of fabric, it holds your iron upright for you, and has a handy shelf for whatever you want. The only thing is doesn’t do is fly, which we’ll overlook.
A Steam Iron
Only get this iron if your fully prepared for the undeniable urge to iron every piece of fabric you own. You’ve been warned. This iron is not only a beauty but has 400 steam holes for even steam distribution, an electronic steam pump, 3-way safety shut off, a smooth gliding stainless steal soleplate, and a self cleaning system! That’s what I’m talking about.
You can never have too much fabric and I can’t get enough of the world renowned Etsy fabric shop Miss Matatabi. It’s probably a good thing it’s half way across the world cause my pockets would be a lot emptier. If you’ve never heard of this Japanese fabric shop with it’s gorgeous knit or woven fabrics, you’ve got to head over there now! Things go fast.
Not only are sewing books quick resources to access all the information you’ll ever want to know about sewing but they’re really a beautiful addition to your sewing space.

The Dream List
These are the gifts that all sewists aspire to. This is the “I would give my right arm for one of these” list. Or someone could just buy it for us, pretty please.
A Dream Machine
We all get by with the machines we have and we love them but secretly in the back of our closets we have a shrine dedicated to our dream machine. A Janome sewing/embroidery machine is my dream machine. I can’t even begin to list all the features but they’re all the ones that dreams are made of and more.
If you’re going to dream, a serger is definitely included. A serger will single handedly revolutionize your sewing. This one from Juki also has a cover hem option so you can get that professional hem on all your knit sewing projects!
My Size Mannequin
To own a custom size dress form would take you beyond the home sewist to the professional fashion designer status. It’d be like having a my size dolly only better because you get to make her clothes and then wear them yourself!
