If you are a new beginner to sewing or have been sewing for years, it’s important to have the best tools when starting new projects in 2011. I have been sewing for 53 years (a long time) but took a break and started to sew again in 1999. I could not believe the change in sewing notions and how the right tools make your sewing projects so much easier and fun to finish. I have gone from a treadle machine when I was 10 to electronic mega sewing machines that do everything except the morning dishes.

Over the next 11 days we will share some of the popular sewing tools and notions for 2011. If you have a favorite sewing tool or notion please let us know. Be sure to post below.
