Did you finally take the leap and purchase your very own Janome sewing machine? Are you excited to start making your own clothes and learning how to sew? Sewing can be a fun, exhilarating project, and buying a high quality sewing machine is a great place to get started, but there are a few more things that you will need in order to be successful! The following is our list of the top supplies that every beginner needs to start sewing:

  • A cutting mat– Sewing requires a great deal of cutting and pinning, which could be potentially troublesome for your dining room table or desk. Ensure that you are protecting your furniture by investing in a cutting board. Later on, you could buy a cutting table or something a little fancier, but for beginners, a simple cutting mat should do perfectly.
  • Fabric scissors– You will have to do a lot of cutting during your sewing adventures, and if you have a good pair of fabric scissors on your side, it will save you a great deal of time and frustration!
  • A ruler– As we said, you will be doing a lot of cutting in the near future, and the best way to ensure that your projects come out beautifully and straight is by investing in an easy-to-read ruler made specfically for sewists!
