Basic sewing supplies

What exactly constitutes the bare necessities for sewing is subject to debate. Some people like more tools, others say that even a sewing machine is optional as you can sew by hand.

For the sake of clarity, when I refer to basic sewing supplies on this website, I mean the following:

  • Tape measure
  • Sewing machine
    • Sewing machine needles
    • Bobbins
  • Sewing thread
  • Fabric scissors
  • Seam ripper
  • Pins and hand sewing needles
  • Fabric marker/Pencils
  • An iron
