The right sewing machine accessories make the sewing process easier
Whether you have a sewing machine, embroidery machine or overlock: All machines need care and various little tools. Just as fabric, patterns and thread are all part of a sewing project, you also need to make sure you always have certain sewing accessories available. This will make the individual steps so much easier. In our extensive range, you will find various different accessories:
As a beginner, you probably don’t need the full assortment of sewing machine accessories. However, things you should always have in your sewing kit are oil and brushes for caring for your sewing machine. This is because the only way to ensure long years of enjoyment with your sewing tools is to clean them regularly.
A sewing machine is the absolute basic item for the creative hobby, for every sewing enthusiast. Many people therefore choose to add a personal touch to their machine. Colourful stickers aren’t just exciting for children and young people, adults also love to use them to bring some colour into their lives. Another advantage: If there are several sewing machines at home, you can tell these apart at a glance thanks to the stickers. For example, you can simply stick your name on your machine. You could even add a couple of cute animal and flower stickers too.
Little tools for important sewing steps
Put down an underlay mat before you place your sewing machine on the table. This has several functional features all rolled into one. The sturdy mat has extremely soft padding, making it the best product for absorbing vibrations. This generates an insulating effect. You can enjoy working with a quiet machine, and your neighbours will thank you as well. Underlay mats are also non-stick. Your machine will remain firmly and securely in place. The work surface under the mat is protected, and you can even use it as a comfortable hand rest. If you have a very large sewing machine, you can simply place two underlay mats side by side.
Do you ever wish you had really skinny fingers for particularly fine work in places which are difficult to reach? With our tweezers, you can even reach the finest threads quickly and easily, even in the difficult to reach areas. Our LED tweezers are also an excellent light source for visibility.
Threading can be very laborious and irritating. Using a needle threader will help you with this. Frustrating threading attempts are a thing of the past. This practical accessory allows you to quickly thread every thread through the eye of the needle, and you can start sewing straight away.
Make appliqué and embroidery succeed
Bulging fabrics such as jersey, fleece or knitted fabrics sometimes present challenges. You should use stabiliser to prevent the fabric from becoming twisted or stretched during sewing. The water-soluble stabiliser gives the fabric stability. Add buttonholes, decorative seams or embroidery to the fabric with ease. Once you have completed your sewing work, gently remove the stabiliser from the back of the fabric again using water. If the material is located between two layers of fabric, you don’t need to remove it.
Something that’s especially useful for embroidery using an embroidery frame: self-adhesive stabiliser. You can embroider your selected motif without any creases, thanks to the self-adhesive stabiliser. It can also be clamped into the frame directly, along with the fabric. This gives sensitive fabrics more stability and possible surface wear is prevented in the frame area. The result is a beautiful adornment!
