I'm going to be forwarding this list on to my other half- there are lots of lovely sewing gifts and I love receiving new tools and presents for my best hobby. This list is curated from my favourite things we have in the shop and use in the workshops, I love them all!

What's better than sewing tools? PRETTY sewing tools!  The Prym Love range is a range of quality sewing tools including pliers, scissors, marking tools and other essentials in their signature colour of turquoise and will brighten up any sewists day.

Our favourites are the magnetic pincushion-complete with pins, spotty metal dressmaking sheets, retractable carbon pencil and chalk marking wheel.


Sewing Kit

There is no better time than the New Year to try something new, so askfor a newa kit this Christmas and widen your crafty repertoire. 

We have a wide range of kits avalible, with something for everyone! The felt kits are perfect for children aged 5+ because they have pre-punched holes and everything they need to make a fun soft toy.

Older kids will enjoy this cute fox cross stitch or the classic 'Home Sweet Home' cross stitch for a retro feel.

Adults can also enjoy craft kits, my favourite is our Make Up Bag kit, but we have lots of fun options to choose from online and in store!


Pyjama Kits

 Make yourself a pair of snuggly warm pyjamas for Christmas, or give the kit as a gift to the sewer in your life.  A fun and quick make, this kit also comes wrapped in tissue paper making them the perfect gift this Christmas!  

The kit includes 2.5m of fabric, elastic, and your printed pattern.


A Creative Mug

Bring a little colour to your sewing table with a beautiful Jilly Jilly mug!  Everyone needs a cuppa while creating.


Tailors Ham

Take your sewing to the next level with a tailors ham.  Used to help press curved or 3D elements of garments, like darts and shoulders for a professional finish, a tailors ham is an absolute essential at the pressing table.



independent dressmaking patterns

It's probably best to make a list and share it with your loved ones of which patterns you would like to receive.   See our full range of dressmaking patterns here!

For new sewers, or those of you would like to have a go at dressmaking, you can't go wrong with a pyjama pattern.  Pyjamas are one of the simplest patterns to sew, and, because they're only worn at home, they're a low pressure project!


'Sewing is My Super Power' Pouch
