I needed help to find sewing stuff to give my wife for Christmas. She’s a lower end intermediate and has recently showed a an increased interest in sewing, especially for clothes for our 5 year old with special needs. Of all the list I looked at yours was easily tops. I found you to be authoritative and helpful, enough so that I decided to go with just your list exclusively. You have so many neat suggestions that even I, a sewing dummy, could discern as great, practical recommendations. And it was up to date with all but one of eight items I selected available! (The dressmaking shears are on back order so those will be great a little down the road.)

I wanted to thank you so much for the help. I’ll be pointing her to this site, and this article after the unwrapping.
