Treat The Sewing Lover In Your Life This Christmas With A Gift From Spotlight

If you've got a sewist in your life, you'll know how the right sewing supplies can make their craft so much easier, and more satisfying. At Spotlight we've got all the sewing supplies sewists need for their hobby, and gifting them some for Christmas is never a bad idea! This gift guide will showcase our top 5 categories we think you should check out for great Christmas gifts for sewers - read on to find the perfect gift for your sewist friend or family member.

Time-Saving Sewing Machines

Sewing machines save time and produce professional results, so are a must-have for any sewist wanting to do more than hand-sew buttons or fix small tears! Keep an eye out for brands like Semco, Janome, Singer and Elna, which have been producing sewing machines for decades and have many spare parts and accessories for you to use with your machine.

Make sure to figure out if your sewist would prefer a computerised/digital or manual sewing machine. Digital sewing machines have many quality-of-life improvements and ready-made patterns you can use, and some even connect to the internet, allowing you to download extra patterns. However, these can be tricky to use, and also hard to fix if something goes wrong.

Manual machines are great to learn on and easy to use - they'll do what you need them to, with no frills and fuss. They're easy to fix too! But experienced sewers may find them limiting, and they can be very heavy compared to digital sewing machines.

Helpful Haberdashery

All the little things sewists can't live without are in the haberdashery category! These are the supplies that give sewn clothing shape, help fasten them and keep them together while you wear them.

Sewing necessities like threads, elastics, needles and pins are all must-haves for sewists, and we've got them in a range of colours and materials to suit the fabric they're working with.

We also have a range of fasteners, including zippers, buttons and hooks and loops to keep your crafted garments together. With options for invisible and decorative fasteners, we've got a fastener to suit every type of clothing!

Finally, do you have someone interested in starting sewing as a beginner? Get them one of our useful sewing kits, which includes everything a newbie sewist needs to get started. They can also double as a useful travel kit for more experienced sewers!

Gorgeous Ribbons And Trims For Special Projects

Help your sewist make their projects a little extra special with the right ribbon or trim. Whether it's on a sleeve, hem, collar or rim, the right trim or ribbon can turn any garment from drab to fab!

We've got an excellent variety of trims to choose from, including fancy trims in elegant colours and designs, fringe trims for a more retro look, feather trims for some extra razzle-dazzle and pom pom and tassel trims to draw eyes to a certain part of the garment.

For a more understated (but still stylish) effect, try our braided and twill tapes as a trim, or use piping and cord for a pop of colour along a section of clothing. Or go in the opposite direction with some bold and vibrant ric rac!

Ribbons are also great for adding detail to sewn projects - choose from satin ribbon, organza and tulle, grosgrain and twill and jacquard ribbons to gift your sewist friend or family member.
