Here is a list of basic sewing supplies you will need as you begin your sewing journey. I recommend to invest in good quality tools that will last a lifetime of sewing.  I have had many of my tools for 30 years and can't live without them! Love the new ergonomic designs on several of the tools. 

 All of them can be found at Hobby Lobby, Walmart and Amazon.
