Shopping for Mom is a joy. Give her a gift that will make her feel special. It’s easy to shop when mothers sew or do needlework. All sorts of items make suitable gifts.
Gift baskets are just the thing. These make quick and easy gifts. Just choose a large basket, and line it with a large piece of fabric. Then, fill it with different kinds of sewing and needlework related items. This gift needs no wrapping. Attach a colorful bow and a Mother’s Day card to the basket. Then, you’re all set for the most special day of the year.
For quilters and sewers, start with some color-coordinated bundles of fat quarters. Be as generous as you can. These are to die for. Packages of fabric printer sheets are also in great demand. Scissors, and most any kind of sewing notion, such as thread, bias tape, trim, and buttons, are much appreciated. Sewers and quilters alike would love to receive sets of Swarovski crystals for embellishing their beautiful sewing projects.
New rotary cutters with extra blades, cutting mats, a steam iron, or a heavy duty ironing board cover are always welcomed by those who sew or quilt. For machine embroidery, additional embroidery cards are just the thing.
If you mom is planning to do some decorating, buy an assortment of pillow forms in different sizes and shapes so she can sew or quilt to her heart’s content.
For moms who are into needlework, there are many types of suitable gifts. Among these are basic needlework supplies, such as needles, embroidery scissors, yarns, embroidery thread, needlepoint mesh, fabric for counted cross stitch, cross stitch charts, and the like.
Kits and patterns of all sorts make superb gifts for moms who sew or do needlework. Examples include quilt kits, which are widely available in stores and online. In addition, there are sewing kits for making various items, such as totes. Needlework and embroidery kits are available at leading craft stores and other sources.
If your budget allows, more expensive items, such as quilting software or a new sewing machine, would be a superb choice for this occasion.
Subscriptions to your mom’s favorite sewing/quilting/needlework magazine are well received as Mother’s Day gifts. The same is true for memberships in various organizations, such as the American Quilter’s Society and the American Sewing Guild.
Organizers, storage bins, and other types of storage units are much appreciated for storing that stash of fabric, and sewing/needlework supplies. With a good storage system, you mom can easily find what she wants in a hurry.
Books on sewing, needlework, and quilting make wonderful Mother’s Day gifts.
If you aren’t sure as to what sort of sewing/needlework supplies your mom needs, give a gift card from her favorite store or online source.
When it comes time to wrap large sewing or quilting gifts, do it the easy way. Use large pieces of fabric. Unlike paper, this won’t rip or tear. Fabric actually works much better than paper for oddly shaped items, such as quilt batting. In addition, your mom can put the cloth to good use, while the paper will be discarded.
There are other fun ways to present sewing/quilting gifts. For example, if you’re giving spools of thread, insert these on a thin dowel. Tie bows at each end of the dowel to hold the spools in place. Choose threads in a rainbow of colors for a beautiful, practical sewing/quilting Mother’s Day gift
