Christmas Gift Ideas For Sewers

by Elowen

The weather outside is frightful, but the craft-room is so delightful, since we’ve got time to sew, let it snow, let it snow, let it snow! Well, I wish it were snowing, here in Australia there’s the looming threat of an unrelenting melt-you-into-a-puddle Summer. What a good time to stay in-doors and sew! Or waffle around on the internet getting expert tips on what to buy for the crafty person in your life!

I’ve put together a list of things that would delight any crafter, across a broad price range to ensure there’s something to suit a variety of budgets. Now, in no particular order, here are the gifts I personally recommend this Christmas.

Whilst this mug is billed as ‘Sewing Mouse – Vintage Art’ it’s actually the cover art to Beatrix Potter’s The Tailor of Gloucester. I adore Beatrix Potter and The Tailor of Gloucester is one of my favourites as it probably is with most who know their way ’round a needle and thread – or should I say raspberry twist?

Rating: 4.7/5 stars, 16 reviews

Well this is very pretty, no? I have seen many a sewing machine necklace, but what I like about this one is the sleekness of it, and, whilst I usually am all for that which is vintage, I rather appreciate the modern feel to this.

HMK Hallmark Sewing Machine Tree Trimmer Ornament

Multi-purpose Quilting Clips

$8.95 | (was $12.96, now 31% off)

Rating: 4.8/5 stars, 7 reviews

This is listed as a Christmas tree ornament, but I think it would look lovely hanging anytime of year in a crafty person’s sewing space! It’s always nice to add those touches of on-theme flair to a room.

Ooo, this has everything you need to make an absolutely beautiful wall hanging quilt that even lights up! It’s optional, you don’t have to include the LED lights in your quilt but I certainly would. Maybe it could even be a lovely night-light for a small child?
