    My treadle machine. I can sew without using electricity, and it’s amazing just how powerful those machines are!

    My fav tool for sewing is sewing soap chalk which disappear from the fabric after ironing. :)

    I will have to say my favorite sewing tool is my little thread snips. I’m out of sorts in my sewing room if they are missing.

    Love my cutting wheel and self healing mat since I starting using them a few years ago. Makes a HUGE difference when cutting out. Oh and a SHARP seam ripper, never knew the difference until I won one from Burda style years ago, revelation!

    Good quality scissors. And my chalk marker thingy that has a small wheel on the end and makes the nicest, sharp lines.

    The dress shears my mom bought me. I’m left-handed and they’re made specifically for lefties. They’re a lifesaver!

    When I first started sewing, i had literally the machine, a 6" ruler and white thread. That was it, sad i know, but it didnt stop me from trying to make a few things. The right tools make all the difference. A rotary cutter was my first splurge and i absolutely love it. It cuts like butter!

    I have recently realised what a huge difference proper pressing can make to my sewing projects. So I have to say my iron is my current fave tool.

    My favorite sewing tool is the speed control on my sewing machine. I can turn it to slow and force myself to slow down when doing things like top stitching or hong kong seams. The only way for me to get my stitches exactly where I want them is to slow down – and I’m terrible at controlling the speed through the pedal pressure – so I love having the option of speed control.

    I have a magnetic cube-shaped doohicky (about 1/4" tall) that when lined up with the seam markings on my machine, extends the length so when I’m sewing a long, straight line, I don’t have to worry about keeping the fabric straight, I just have to feed it along the cube. A quilting friend gave it to me so maybe it’s a quilting tool but I’m sure it has a good name; I just don’t know what it is. :)
