Fabric, Fabric, Fabric!

Trust us: any sewer will squeal when gifted with fabric. After all, it just gives them the chance to start a new project ! Go for one that reminds you of their vibrant personality, or a print you already know they love.

A Fun Sewing Kit

If you know your friend loves to sew but have no clue which supplies are hanging around her sewing room, kits are a solid gift option. They’re the one-stop-shop for everything she’ll need to complete her next project. Whether she likes to sew dresses or pillows, table runners or bags, she’ll love bringing one of these fun, fresh ideas to life.

Fresh Scissors


At first glance, this may seem like a relatively boring gift. But fear not: it’s a major stocking stuffer win. Sewers are constantly using their scissors, so having ones with sharp blades is clutch. These have comfy handles, a micro-serrated blade to prevent frayed edges and a protective plastic cover to keep them in shape for many snips to come. (And if you know she prefers a rotary cutter, you can always nab her some new blades.

Flat Flower Pins

Another genius stocking stuffer idea: pins. Actually, let us be more specific: flat pins that won’t melt. These do just that and they lie flat under acrylic rulers, making them the perfect essential for any sewist as she makes her way through her next genius creation.

Magnetic Pin Organizer

Every sewer has been there: that moment when, out of nowhere, she accidentally swipes her container of pins, spilling them all over the dang floor. To help your friend avoid that painful pickup, gift her a magnetic organizer. (Even better if you give her pins, too!) It’ll keep those puppies in place, propelling them to the outside edge in a sunburst so they’re quick and easy to grab.

The Perfect Sewing Shirt

Sewers don’t just want supplies — anything that shows off their love of the craft is great, too. This shirt does just that, making it known to just about everyone how close that needle and thread is to her heart.

A Punny Bag

Since you already know sewers love stocking up on fabric, ya might as well gift her a bag to stash it in. (Not to mention fellow sewers will get a kick out of it when she carries it around town!)
