5 stocking stuffers to give to your sewing hobbist

If you are not a person that sews and you are looking for Christmas gift ideas for a person that does sew then take a look at my list below on 5 stocking stuffers for the person that sews.
  • A good quality rotary cutter. That little item would be welcomed by anybody that enjoys quilting.
  • A nice pair of ergonomically correct scissors. There is nothing worse than a cheap pair of scissors that make your hands ache after only using them for 15 minutes.
  • A portable light. Those sewing machine lights are not that strong and a good light that can be moved around to spotlight their sewing work would greatly be appreciated.
  • Spray tacky glue. Used to tack on pieces of cloth to a backing without using pins, great for applique work. That item is usually found in the hardware section. Make sure it is for cloth only.
  • A book of sewing ideas. There are just times when the inspiration does not come and we need a boost. Make sure the book is at least under one year old from the original publishing date. There is nothing worse than getting a book that is outdated fashion wise.
Now you have some ideas just take a walk down the craft aisle and see what you can come up with. If you know what type of sewing the person you are buying the gift for does, you will have a better idea of what they would like to have.
