Basic Sewing Supplies

Basic Sewing Supplies are the necessary tools needed by every quilter and sewist. They include pins, needles, thread, thimble, scissors, seam ripper, marking tools, rulers, tape measure in a storage or travel container. They can also include items for your sewing machine, like machine needles, small screw driver and instruction manual. Often Basic Sewing Supplies is listed as an item on a sewing or quilting class supply list along with specific supplies needed for the class or project.
