Haberdashery encompasses all the smaller items needed to complete a project. If you’re new to sewing, it can seem like there’s a lot to know about. As well as an abundance of fabric to work with, there are many products you can get to help make your life easier.
We’ve created this list of some of the items you may need as a beginner.
Pins And Needles
Having a good selection of needles is going to help with many projects, and you can be sure they’ll last for a long time. Needles come in many shapes and sizes, so there will be the right one for your craft. Pins and safety pins are also really useful additions to a collection. Pins can be used to help keep things together and stable.
Haberdashery Supplies: Thread
Both for your projects and sewing machine health, it’s important to get quality thread. There are many types of thread out there, with different thicknesses, materials, styles, and colours. Whatever project you have, there will be a thread that is suitable.
A good pair of sharp fabric scissors are a great staple of your haberdashery kit. This will help keep edges neat and will be far better quality than the kitchen scissors. There are many shapes and sizes to choose from depending on what projects you want to complete. You could also get some thread cutters as these are small and perfect for snipping off the end of threads.
When it comes to haberdashery supplies, a tape measure is going to be very useful for many projects. To get the perfect measurements, it’s important to get a tape measure that can help do this.
Fabric markers are essential for scoring where the fabric needs to be cut or sewn, or even for jotting down measurements. Again, there are many options, such as chalk or pencil. These specialist pens are erasable so marks can be cleaned right off.
Fasteners And Buttons
Lastly, we recommend having a few buttons, hooks, grips, or zips in your core haberdashery kit. These can be useful for any task, or even if the button falls off your favourite cardigan. There are so many to choose from that you will have plenty of choices. Fasteners are a must-have for many projects.
