What I Wish I’d Known Before Investing in Sewing Supplies
Keeping a stash of sewing supplies for taking to class makes life easier. Purchase the best quality tools and supplies you can afford because they will make your projects much easier, and some, such as good scissors, will last a lifetime.
Keep your tools in good condition! Sharpen your scissors, keep a spare blade for your rotary cutter and swap it out as needed, and give your sewing machine a break to keep it in great shape!
