wondering what to give that sewing enthusiast in your life for the upcoming holiday? here are twelve ideas for those whose souls are fed with needle and thread!
our hand-sewing DOWRY SCARF KIT is great for those who want to spend some time away from their machines and snuggled up next to the fire. the kit includes 9 different fabrics from anna maria horner’s new dowry collection, fringe bobbles, embroidery thread, instructions, and a needle. After a little ironing prep-work, this project can be toted over the river and through the woods! suited for ages 12 and up. ~$24.50
the quilters on your list will enjoy this AURIFILL MAKO COTTON VARIEGATED THREAD! made from long staple egyption cotton, this 50wt thread is great for all-purpose sewing, quilting, and appliqué. ~$5 each or 2 for $9
these LITTLE WALLETS are great to give as kits or to whip up and give as finished products! each kit comes with the pattern, velcro, interfacing, and two fat quarters of your choice. warning: this project can be habit-forming. ~$12
everyone knows that seam rippers are sewists’ most essential (and most dreaded) tools. but the QUICK RIPPER isn’t dreadful. it’s fun! this bad boy rips out seams in two seconds, allowing you to spend more time constructing, not deconstructing! battery is included. ~$29
the little ladies in your life might like this KID-STITCHED CUPCAKE PURSE KIT, great for kiddos ages 6+. the kit includes felt, thread, buttons, instructions, ribbon, pattern, and needle. ~$20
the small sewists on your list will also love the sewing school book series by memphis’ own amie plumley and andria lisle. SEWING SCHOOL 1 is full of sweet hand-sewing projects, and SEWING SCHOOL 2 is for the machine-sewing littles. book 1- $16.95, book 2 – $18.95
and while we’re on a kid-sewing roll, check out our new CRAZY FOX KIT for ages 6+. kit includes felt, fabric, stuffing, pattern, buttons, needle, instructions, and thread. ~$20
those who aspire to live “with substance and style” will want to transport themselves into the pages of ANTHOLOGY MAGAZINE, a quarterly publication that is part exotic home-tour, part hand-made field guide, and part thrift shop treasure log with occasional recipes, playlists, and book recs thrown in. sew memphis is proud to be one of the very few mid-southern stockiest of this jewel! $24.99
for those who need somewhere to “stache” their pencils, makeup, or facial hair grooming supplies, this kit is the perfect gift! whip up this STACHETASTIC ZIPPER POUCH and give them the finished product, or just pass along the kit, which includes instructions, pattern, zipper, and fabric. ~$22
create the fabulous ELSA THE ELEPHANT for the babies and young children in your life. this machine-sewing kit includes soft flannel elephant fabric, stuffing, yarn for the tail, and embroidery thread for the eyes, pattern, and instructions. ~$25
