Sewing Essentials

You know, I've been sewing for probably about 40 years now. And quite honestly, if you do anything for 40 years you become accustomed to doing it a certain way.

With sewing, that translates as simply this: when I have the right tools, things are just a whole lot better. The right tools make the job. This is true no matter what you're doing. For me, in the kitchen -- it's a rubber spatula. In the toolshed -- it's a ratchet screwdriver. In the laundry -- it's one of those fabulous new "Bounce" dryer bars that attaches to the inside of the drum. It pretty much boils down to this: you cuss a whole lot less when you have the right tools.

So because I have accumulated a few things that I commonly use, I thought I'd share those with you. If you're relatively new to sewing, these tools might help you. And if you're a more experienced sewer, you may not yet have come across one of the tools I use. Either way, I really hope it makes your sewing experience easier, more efficient, and more fun --

  1. I'd never heard of the loop turner, but it looks amazing. Must get one.


That'll be two cents for your opinion please. : )
