This summer we have to show you our Monday Must Haves on our Monday Love List! We have accumulated so much craft goodies over the year and we want to make sure you keep your accessories up to date.
With so many accessories to have, we wanted to share our favourites with you. From scissors to hoops to thread storage, this is what we are loving this week.
We have a range of scissors for you here at SewandSo, however these petite novelty Eiffel Tower scissors are stunning! They are silver coloured, with tiny thumb holes and blades – ideal for collectors of retro needlework hardware. Perfect for a gift and definitely ideal if you want to treat yourself for a new pair!
Hoops hoops hoops! We love our hoops! Today we thought we’d remind you the hoops from all sorts of sizes! Perfect for miniature embroidery necklaces to bigger projects. We have wooden to plastic hoops – perfect if you have a preference! Don’t forget – DMC have the most beautifully floral painted hoops in different sizes too! You can find them here.
If you plan on working with fabric over the summer, then a rotary cutter is a must have! The nice thing about working with a rotary cutter is that it can be used to cut all sorts, such as ribbon and paper.
This simple thread storage box from DMC is ideal for all your threads and being able to see, at a glance, what threads you have and, more importantly, what you are running low on. Use this box to colour coordinate your thread or keep in sections depending on which project(s) you’re are currently working on.
It’s always handy to have a pack of needles and pins. Even if you don’t work with fabrics, may may use it to sew on a button or even to embellish something. If you aren’t looking for a sewing kit, our wide selection of needles includes tapestry needles, embroidery, beading, chenille, darner’s, milliners, sashiko, doll, and quilting needles – and even twin pointed quick stitch needles. Make sure you also look at our needle cases and pebble packs for safe needle storage.
Whether if it is cotton tape or double sided basting tape, a roll of tape is something you should always keep at home.. You never know how handy it is! Crafters love using it to hold down projects or even to remove lint from a fabric. Double sided tape is great for many things. Especially for holding down embellishments.
A floor frame or stand will keep your work in the right place leaving your hands free to stitch stitch and sew. Choose from sleek, modern metal frames to traditional wooden stands. To demonstrate the features and how to make the most of your stand, see the videos we’ve created in the product descriptions.
A complete range of lighting to sew, knit or craft by. From Daylight magnifying lamps to energy saving bulbs, tubes and accessories, you’ll be able to illuminate your work and see colours accurately.
This is a stylish tape measure from the Prym Love range. Fancy adding a bit of colour and style to your sewing box? Well this is perfect for that. This tape measure is so pretty and is a must have in your sewing box.
