Back in 2018, we started posting an annual gift guide for sewing and quilty things. You can review those guides here: 2018; 2019: Part 1; 2019: Part 2.
We’re starting a little earlier this year to give more time for ordering and delivery. We hope you enjoy it. Feel free to leave your own ideas in the comments below.

Hello all! It’s that time of year again! A few ideas to consider adding to your wish list or for gifting to quilting friends. (Click on any image for a larger view)
Sench Side-Threading Needles
These are great for burying your threads from hand or machine quilting. I also use them when I am hand stitching a binding or cross stitch but run out of thread to finish the length of stitching. The trick is to slide the thread down the side from the top to find the opening. Link to more info
Clover Hot Ruler
This tool is used with your iron to create even hems. It works well when making a single-fold binding and you need to press a 1/4” seam allowance to hand stitch to the back of the project.Link to More Info
Purple Air Erase Marking Pen
Alex Anderson and Quilter’s Select have created this marking pen. She swears by it and has used it in many of her live videos this year. Link to More Info
This is a non-sticky “tape” that adheres to itself. This has been really helpful to keep my thread spools from becoming a tangled mess. It works on spools, balls of pearl cotton, and it holds bundles of fabric together. I also use it to keep my hand stitching rolled up on a tube when I’m not working on it.Link to More Info
Raskog Cart from IKEA
My son gave this cart to me about 5 years ago. I love it! It is easy to assemble, adaptable and so useful. I found a “top” for the cart at Craft Warehouse and it allows me to place my iron on it while ironing large pieces of fabric on my big board. I also can use it as additional space to hold block pieces ready to piece next to my sewing machine. There is even a FaceBook group for these carts-many ways to organize your sewing room, crafts, bathroom, kitchen…Link to More Info
