Gift Guide for Quilters
Happy Holidays! For the quilter in your life, here are some different gift ideas for all ages.
For quilters who travel a lot, there are gift items to help ease the anxiety of packing or toting around one’s equipment. Travel cases are ideal for quilters who attend lots of retreats or maybe travels for business. They provide inner storage options, an organization for essential items, and come in different shapes and sizes. The AccuQuilt Go Fabric Cutter is a great choice for any quilter on the go. It uses a unique system that cuts fabrics must faster than a rotary or scissors and is ideal for anyone that needs to cut a lot of fabric. A cutting mat is included with each purchase. It is light and portable to take on any vacation or quilters retreat.
Fabric estimating calculators are great gifts for seamstresses or any quilter. They simplify the process of purchasing fabric and can even reverse calculations to allow you to see how many squares or diamonds can be made from a piece of fabric. FabriCalc is an excellent option for a long battery life and multiple functions.
Essentials items are awesome gifts for those just starting out. Rotary cutting sets provide everything a quilter needs to measure and cut fabric. They are affordable and essential for any quilter. Quilter’s Rule Rulers are designed specifically for quilting and measuring fabric. Clips are extremely helpful to bind pieces together or keep strips and squares organized and are cheap with 50 clips for $10.
Help them keep their area clean and tidy with a Scrap Catcher. The bin attaches to the table and suspends over the workspace to allow the quilter to snip and clip without worrying about losing any scraps.
Mini irons are the best for getting hard to reach places on fabric. They allow finished projects to look even better and are great for getting those corners just right.
You can never go wrong with fabric. Any craft store will have packs of squares. Choose combinations that you know they will love!
Buy them a KQiQ club membership. For $79, you can purchase a full year of benefits including a free travel kit, surprise gifts, free shipping, discounts on books, and free admission to sewing and quilting expos.
