Londa’s FAVORITE Sewing Notions
“What are YOUR favorite sewing notions? Which ones should I buy?” This is a question several of my new sewing students (and their mothers) have asked me lately. Sew…I decided to really survey what I grab all the time to use as I sew. Let’s put it this way – when I go to a sewing retreat in Texas with my sister in August, these are the sewing tools/notions I will FOR SURE take with me – and WHY. Each heading is a LINK – because, guess what – I sell these tools at my website. Some, I have overstock on right now – so they are ON SALE.
Deluxe Seam Ripper by Clover $4.95
I tell my students – you may as well learn to UN-Sew, because it is just a necessary evil – you WILL have to rip. This one fits in my hand just right. I LOVE LOVE LOVE it for ripping. How to rip? On one side, rip through a stitch every 3/4″ or so. Then the thread on the other side should just pull off.
Japanese Tweezers by Clover $6.75
To remove any left-over thread pieces, grab any left-over threads, the Japanese TWEEZERS from Clover.
Side note: these are the BEST eyebrow tweezers you’ll EVER find!!! So – treat yourself to 2 of them!
