There are a ton of these gift lists online, and I have written quite a few myself. If you’re a quilter, you may think, “What about gifts for quilters and sewers?”. Well, let me put your mind at ease and let you know that I haven’t forgotten about you. Whether you are looking for a gift for yourself or the quilter in your life, this list is sure to provide you some great ideas. Some are cheap, others are not quite as cheap, but sometimes a little money is needed to find that perfect gift. Right?
Let’s start out by making those trips easier on them. Carrying everything you need to quilt can be a pain and for the quilting addict, going on a trip without your equipment can be challenging, to say the least. Let this traveler kit help you bring some tools along. Fill it up with your materials and you are good to go.
This fabric cutter saves you the trouble of scissors. I know, there is not a lot of trouble involved with scissors, but this fabric cutter aims to make it a little easier. It is small, compact and should be a good buy for that quilter in your life. They will appreciate it, assuming you can get them to change their process of work.
If you want unique, then here is unique. This watch has some elements that are very reminiscent of quilting, and I think the fan of the craft will like it. I would make sure that the person you are buying this for would wear it first as I don’t think that gimmicky watches like this are for everyone.
The serious quilter probably has one of these already, but there is a chance that they don’t. its sole purpose is to help you estimate how much fabric you need and save you money, and waste. After all, you want your quilting to be fun, as cheap as possible, and you don’t want a bunch of scraps.
It is probably safe to say that you have a light on in your house at pretty much all times. A lot of people have them in the bathroom for those late night trips. Swap out that non-quilting particular light for this one. It has patterns, a sewing machine and more.
Getting your materials perfect is sometimes a necessity to get that perfect end result. However, ironing a little square of paper is a pain, and no one wants to do it. This handy mini-iron is there to save their day. Plus, it is highly portable and ideal for the travel kit from earlier.
What is a better gift for a quilter than, well, things to quilt. This 20 pack is a great gift for the novice or even the expert. You can never have enough product Really, I think for a person who is considering getting into quilting, this would be a great gift for them to make a small blanket with.
Wine and quilting kind of go hand in hand. I don’t really know why I feel that way, but I do. So, with that in mind, get the quilter in your life this unique wine glass. I don’t know that I would recommend drinking a whole bottle while working with the sewing machine, but I guess that is up to you.
This is another one of the practical gifts for the quilter in your life. Clamps are a necessity, and I don’t think you could ever have enough. This set has many different colors, shapes, and sizes. Great for a starter kit and great for the professional.
This is not necessarily something that will aid the quilter in their trade, but it is something that they will enjoy. The mug is nice, and it has some little treats included. The four soft coasters are sure to be a hit and fit well on their coffee table while they have a drink and eat that biscotti.
Whether it is used as storage for some of their equipment or for something else, a tote is one of those items that you can never have enough of. I think I have about 20 of them around the house and can never find one when I need it. Get the quilter in your life their new favorite tote.
Gag gifts are fun, and this one can be nice as well. They say if you do what you love then you will never work a day in your life. Make that saying come true for your quilting lover and get them a degree from Quilting State University. It is fully customizable to make it more personal for your loved one.
Templates make everything easier. Those tricky shapes can be nearly impossible to freehand, and some of the cheap templates out there can be cut through in no time. These will last a long time and are well worth the money. I know spending over $100 for just anyone isn’t going to happen, so make sure the person you are buying these for has a need for them.
Let the quilter in your life show off their love of the craft to everyone that they drive by. It is like the bumper stickers for marathon runners who like to rub it in your face that they are way more athletic, but for quilters who want to show off that they will never be cold if they have a few hours, a sewing machine and some spare cloth.
Maybe a car sticker isn’t the quilter in your life’s speed. This necklace may be more up their alley and something that they would enjoy more. After all, not everyone loves putting things on their car, but most women like wearing necklaces. Whether it is your mother, daughter, wife, or that special someone this will be a good buy.
This picture is framed and ready to hang on the wall of your quilting studio (is that a thing?). Have your name added to it, an optional established date, and use it brighten up that empty wall. This is a great price for something like this, and I think anyone would love it.
This phone case will bring that oh so the beloved feeling of fabric to always be in your hand regardless of if you are actually quilting at the time or not. This beautiful design is made for the iPhone 6 Plus and S-Plus. Unfortunately, if you have another phone, there is little I can do for you here, but I think you could find other cases out there.
This hot knife is something that not every quilter will need, but those who are wanting to begin work with foam and covering them in their work can really benefit from this. Foam can be a real pain to work with, and this knife cut through it like butter. It is a really handy thing to have around for crafty people, and if you are reading this list, you are either crafty or know someone who is.
T-Shirts are always a good gift, and nothing is better than a funny T. This one is the best quilting t-shirt that I have seen. I mean, what is more, badass than a quilter? According to this shirt, absolutely nothing. I could see getting this for my grandmother who quilts non-stop. She would likely wear it every day, which, I could not fault her for.
So let’s say the watch and the other wall ornaments didn’t meet your fancy, but you like the idea of something quilting related adorning that empty space. Well, how about this Alien Designs clock? Its unique design is eye catching and will be a good conversation piece.
Here is another piece of jewelry that the quilter may enjoy. Nearly every lady I know wears earrings, and they are always a good gift for them. I don’t think this can go wrong. Heck, maybe you are shopping for yourself, and just want to get a good pair of earrings. Well, here ya go.
Get something for yourself to show off or for someone else to show off the quilts that they have made. This ladder fits almost any decor style and would be a great device to hang some masterpieces off of. It is a way better look than having those blankets in the living room tossed around or folded up in the corner.
Put your name on the work that you complete and expand your brand of work. This is perfect for those people who are beginning to sell or give away their work. You have to brand yourself if you are going to be selling. It is just like any artist signing their work.
This is like a spice rack for the kitchen, but for your thread. I mean, if you are still using a drawer you need to re-think your organization. This handy tree will make your life much easier, and if it is for someone else, they will certainly thank you for it!
If you or the quilter you know is a cat lady, then this is a great gift for them. This combines the two loves that they have into one. Now, the only thing that has to happen is for them to avoid stabbing themselves. Dropping those pins has to be a real problem, and I doubt that anyone has perfected it. However, I have an item next that may help out.
This item is something that I have been telling everyone about, and I think it should be common place in every household. Garage workers and quilters all can benefit from one of these. They hold all those pesky sharp metal things into place so that nothing falls on the floor and ends up, well, on your foot. Stay safe and get this item.
Speaking of keeping needles safe and off of the floor, this quilt queen needle case would be a great buy as well. I am sure that every quilter knows the pain of losing a needle and being afraid to walk. Well, they didn’t have the bracelet mentioned above, and they didn’t have a place to keep them so they rolled off the working station. Don’t let this be you.
“When Life gives you scraps, Make Quilts”. Its simple, poignant and relevant. Plus, who doesn’t love keychains? Well, I don’t, but I am sure that most other people do. My wife has about 3 billion on her keys. I feel so manly when I drive and tinker bell is dangling from the keys.
Fun sayings are always a good gift. This one isn’t on a t-shirt or on a block of wood, but is much more relevant and is on a quilt. Why would you not want this as a gift if you are a quilter? Rule #2 is the best on the list by far.
Let them push their love of quilting down your throat. Literally. This cookie stamper leaves a quilting relevant saying right in the dough and batter of whatever sweet is being made. I don’t know that I would try to stamp a steak with it, but I won’t stop you from trying. Really, I would kind of like to see that. So, if you succeed, tell me.
