15 Useful Sewing Tools And Notions
As I said, I love it. But no matter which sewing machine you buy, keep in mind you (almost) never need the most expensive model 😉 Check out the Janome 2222 in the store.

5) Sewing pins
6) Sewing clips
7) Machine Needles and Hand-Sewing Needles
Hand sewing needles – make sure you get them in a set of various sizes. This handy Dritz set has 25 pieces.
8) A Steam Iron
9) Tape Measure
10) An Ironing Board
11) A Sleeve Board
12) Rotary cutter
Olfa rotary Cutter: 45mm is my favorite, and the best to get if you only need an all-in one size.
The cutting will go super quick if you use a rotary cutter. I use these with nearly all my projects here on the blog.
13) Cutting Mat

14) A Quilting Ruler
This is my new Janome 990D serger and I love it! The pic is from when I just took it out of the box. Threading has been a breeze – totally easy. Three words: color-coded guides, guys!!! I immediately tested the different tensions. And rethreaded the lower looper, just to see if it was complicated. (It wasn’t!) Works perfectly since day one, and I’m happy I got it. I’m linking to the same Janome model specifications – for the USA market.
And also, the bonus package I’ve found in the box – LOVE it! Great value at affordable price. No need for a more expensive model – especially not if you’re a hobby sewist! Check it out in the store.
