If you had something a little smaller in mind you can’t go wrong with these fab rainbow unicorn scissors. With their magical purple shimmer they are sure to appeal to stitchers of all ages. At £7.95 a pair from Brighton Sewing Centre they are ideal for stocking fillers or a secret santa gift.

Maker's Workbook

The Maker’s Workbook

We would be remiss if we didn’t include one of our bestsellers in here. The Maker’s Workbook will help you keep track of your projects in 2019. It is available in a sewing and knitting edition, and for an extra special gift why not order our gift bundle which includes a beautiful handmade drippy tumbler made by Alice Duck.

Sew Hayley Jane fabric subscription

Fabric Subscriptions

For the gift that keeps on giving why not sign up to a monthly fabric subscription?  Each month you will be surprised by a beautiful box of fabric, and some subscriptions include extras like haberdashery, patterns or other sewing accessories too.

For dressmakers we think Sew Hayley Jane’s monthly box is ideal, with 3 different size options available there’s something to suit all budgets.  Recent box shown above.

For quilters Purple Stitchers have 5 different block of the month clubs (pattern and fabric to make that pattern) running or for fabric only take a look at the options available at Simply Solids.

  Sewing and knitting themed enamel pins

Enamel pins

Enamel pins have been the big trend of 2018, with hundreds now available to choose from. If like me you are a material girl (let’s not even talk about the ridiculous size of my stash!) why not shout it loud and proud with our material girl pin?

If knitting is your thing we have this option available.

We’re also fans of this fabric scissors only pin from Justine Gilbuena on the Sew Me Sunshine site andabout Colette’s No Regrets Seam Ripper pin available at Crafty Mastermind.

Emboidery kits make great Christmas gifts for people who enjoy sewing

Stitching kits

Why not go for some slow stitching, enjoy in front of the TV in the evenings, or whilst spending time with family over Christmas.

Sew Hot have a large range of Sashiko kits available with prices from just £8.80. There’s just something about the simple contrast of white on indigo that makes sashiko so beautiful.

Cloud Craft have several brands of embroidery kits including the stunning Nancy Nicholson kits. Having made the cat one myself I can confirm they are suitable for beginners, I hadn’t done much embroidery at all before I started it.

If you love animals you will love the Hawthorne Handmade embroidery kits which you can find on the Flo-Jo Fabrics site  They also have cross stitch and dressmaking kits available too.

Sewing storage boxes

Sewing storage

Our Maker’s Boxes are ideal for storing, fat quarters, yarn or works in progress. These lightweight canvas boxes are also flat packable for when they aren’t in use, but let’s face it that’s not going to be very often. Priced at £11 each there are 2 design options available.

If you have a bit more to spend we adore the bee themed range of sewing bags and boxes available at Plush Addict. The one pictured costs £39, prices start from £14.80.

Spoolpods - the way to store your bobbins and thread together

Get your threads organised with our innovative Spool Pods. They are made from silicone so they really grip those spools and bobbins, meaning they won’t fall out if you want to sew on the go. You could also use it just to store bobbins if you prefer.  At just £4.50 they are ideal for secret santa gifts, or for £19 you can get a 5 pack. Enough to organise a lot of your thread stash or to gift to multiple friends.

For something really special Sew Essential have some beautiful wooden cantilever sewing and craft boxes. Built to last these are really heirloom gifts, pricing starts at £39.95.
