Sewing Machine

A sewing machine can be a big investment so do take the time finding one that is right for you. You don't need a fancy machine for most of the crafts on this site. I actually prefer to sew by hand but a decent sewing machine will speed up the job. Here's a couple of basic sewing machines that are good for beginners.

Features 32 built-in stitches, a built-in 1-step buttonhole, built-in needle threader and a heavy-duty metal frame making sewing creative projects fun and easy

The built-in needle threader helps you thread the eye of the needle effortlessly.

Push the conveniently located automatic reverse button to sew in reverse and reinforce the stitching

There is an issue currently where the North American power supply on the products can cause electrical damage if plugged into power outlets in other countries

It is not recommend using this machine in countries that do not support 120V AC even if a voltage adapter is in use


Fiskars 8 Inch Softgrip Scissors Straight, Stainless Steel

Fiskars make great scissors and I use several pairs from their range for different purposes.

The soft grip makes cutting comfortable, even if there is lots to do.

These are great general purpose scissors.

The long blade makes them great for cutting out strips for paper chains.

Fiskars Pre-School Training Scissors, Color Received May Vary

These Fiskars pre-school training scissors are great for teaching kids how to cut.

They have a lever that opens the scissors automatically so the child can learn the open-close technique of using scissors, once mastered the lever can be flipped up for regular cutting.

Blunt tips and designed to cut only paper for safe learning.

You can't choose your colors but little ones won't really care about the color while they are learning to cut like the big kids.
