StitchCraft Staff Favorites
Posted by Johanna Fox on
The best gift ideas come from the best source, the StitchCraft staff! These recommendations come from a place of knowledge and from hands on experience.
Take a look at these fabulous products we either use, love, or both. We also arranged them like a starter kit by craft.
Or you can always give the gift of choice with a gift card. They never go out of style and always fit.
Let’s begin and see what Johanna has on her list. For embroidery: a StitchCraft Eleganza Thread Set, a pack of Clover Gold Eye Chenille No 24 needles, a copy of Hand Embroidery Dictionary, and a curated kit of Crazy Quilt Stitch supplies.
Lori keeps it simple: Janome Continental M7 Professional
Kelly loves this huge ball of Jewelspun yarn, Clover Armour crochet hook size H, and this Crochet Stitch Guide. What an awesome selection for a beginner or the crochet enthusiast!
Patty is all about hand appliqué Invisafil 100wt thread, straw needles size 11 from Jeanna Kimball's Foxglove Cottage, a medium size Clover Protect and Grip thimble, and Roxanne Glue-Baste-It.
Raine is a fan of Thimble It Finger Pads (perfect for those who find wearing a thimble challenging!), Clover Wonder Clips, and Creative Grids 6.5" square ruler. This is a perfect batch of basics for any sewist at any stage!
Plus, her go-to book recommendation for new quilters, is Start Quilting with Alex Anderson. Or better yet, take a class with Raine—Quilting 101 starts January 2022!
DT (Diana) has two favorite tools for quilting, an Olfa 60 mm Rotary Cutter, a Creative Grids 8.5" x 24" ruler, and for everything else—a gift card.
Peg is a fan of batiks from Hoffman Fabrics, any found in our extensive inventory, but we'll highlight the 1895 collection and a 3-yard quilt book, like Quick as a Wink.
Christina's quilty must-haves include Glow-Line Tape for crisp guide lines, Wonder-Under, the original paper-backed fusible, and Grunge by Basic Grey for Moda Fabrics.
Cindi's go-to notions are the large purple pair of Karen Kay Buckley's Perfect Scissors and The Appliqué Pressing Sheet from Bear Thread Designs, and a Splash Rotary Cutter 45mm.
Kristin wants to make a quilt from the Paradigm pattern by Homemade Emily Jane, using selections from How Do You Do? by Keiko Goke for FreeSpirit Fabrics, while using the red curved pair of Karen Kay Buckley's Perfect Scissors.
