Sewing requires a thoughtful plan, the perfect fabric, some perseverance, and the right….notions! Like apps on your iPhone, notions specialize in making an aspect of your sewing project much easier. Can’t see to thread your needle? Need to snip some threads? Measuring around a curved line? There’s a notion for that! Even with decades of sewing experience, we’re always finding new notions to make our sewing better and faster. We’ve put together a list of some of our favorite notions, new & old! This a great list to get some last minute stocking stuffers or get them all to help a new sewist stock up on the basics!
