The best tools for textile hobbyists
Sewing, puncturing, embroidering and adjusting and making your own clothes: for a while this was something you only knew from your mother or grandmother. That is no longer the case! Making your own clothes or bed linen is fun and sustainable, and you automatically become more proficient at it. The best thing is if you can use the best tools. You can start designing a dress in high spirits, but if you then have to contend with a blunt needle, a faltering sewing machine and fabric with threads hanging out, the fun is soon gone. Look into textile tools! You won't regret it.
What tools are useful when working with textiles?
We are proud to tell you that we at Crafts & Co have found the sewing machine for beginners and advanced sewers alike. This sewing machine has no less than 12 built-in stitches and knows no secrets for even the greatest textile nitwits. You can use it for small repairs, but the sewing machine is also capable of handling large textile projects. It is speed-adjustable, has an automatic bobbin winder that can be changed, a foot pedal, a handy storage drawer and a power cable of a comfortable length.
We also recommend that you try your hand at a punk mill.
A punk mill, you say?
Yes, and it's not at all boring! It is not just a question of 'just' stitching together a strand of wool. No, you can turn it into the most exciting hobby projects!
Original tips for pinning
Curious about making pins? Then we have some tips for you. Have you ever thought about making decorative details for jumpers or cardigans? Or maybe you would like to make a self-designed keychain? In case someone in your neighbourhood has just given birth: punk a baby gift! You can make the baby's name from the punched cord and attach it to a wooden plate.
