Top 5 Craft Gadgets You Will Love!

Let’s face it, when it comes to crafting, we love a gadget. Anything that makes life easier, quicker and more productive is a big win in our book!

So, we rounded up some of our most popular selling gadgets, and searched out a few more that you perhaps never thought about. Any sewing or needlecraft geek (we include ourselves in that) will love them!

1. Freestanding Hemline Marker

 

How on earth do you get an even hem as easily as possible?  You get this gadget, of course! Freestanding and therefore compatible with any
mannequin, live model or yourself, this fabulous hem marker is simple to use and guarantees no wonky hemlines. The difference between good tailoring and bad dressmaking is all in the finish, and considering you’ve spent all that time making the garment, ensure you have the tools to finish it to a professional standard.

2. Ruler Handle

 

Seems painfully obvious when you look at it, but how many times have you accidentally slipped the ruler you’re holding because you just can’t get your fingers in the right place? This genius little invention gives you extra purchase on your hold, ensuring a clean line to cut or mark and less chance of your fabric pulling away when you try to slide your ruler along or adjust it.

3. Sewing Gauge & Point Turner

 

A personal favourite of quite a few dressmakers here at Sewing Online, this nifty gauge is three tools in one.  Check your button shanks accurately, gauge your crochet or knitting tension, measure repeats or scallops, and best of all, turn corners into perfect points with the shaped tip - which is better than using an old ruler (or knitting needle or knife… we’re all guilty there.)

4. Wool Ball Winder

 

Anyone who avidly knit in the 1980’s probably had one of these – in fact, we’re certain a few of our Mums had one as it was so much fun
to play with them! Wind up your wool into neat balls with this fab winder, which clips securely to a table top. Easy!

5. Knitting Calculator

 

This is pretty ingenious! This little tool converts centimetres into stitches and rows, and adapts to any pattern. Even better, it’s perfect for anyone who designs their own patterns and needs to work out sizing accurately.

6. Notion Themed USB Dongles

 

Okay, this makes six gadgets, but they are way too cute not to shout about! These 2GB USB portable digital storage sticks are shaped as a
sewing machine, cotton reel or tape measure, and are ideal for programming digital sewing machines and storing downloaded pdf patterns. Plus, they look great on a keychain and are definitely more fun than a boring flat USB dongle!
