Essential Sewing and Crafting Supplies

Essential supplies for sewing projects

I get lots of questions about what tools I think someone who sews or crafts needs. I have plenty of supplies in my sewing room. Some I like, some I love, and some products are ones I'm brand loyal to. The only products on this page are my favorite, brand-loyal products that I use. You could walk into my sewing room now, 10 years ago, and 10 years from now and find these products in there.

So what supplies and materials (besides fabrics, of course!) does it take to make all the sewing and craft projects you see here on Deb's Days? It's a big list.
