Are you teaching a friend to sew with the new Sew Mama Sew/Lucky Spool series? I’ve seen some thoughtful and generous posts on social media in which Sew Mama Sew readers are announcing to their friends, “If you want to learn to sew, now is the time; I’ll teach you!” Thank you to all of you who are joining in. If you’d like to learn to sew I hope you’ll reach out to someone to guide you through the process. If you feel like you’re on you’re own though, we’ll have plenty of good information here for you to navigate learning to sew.

Throughout our Teach a Friend to Sew series we’ll have a different topic each week that represents a stepping stone to becoming a better sewist. The task for this week is to stock your sewing tool kit. Get it done, show us a photo, and you have a chance to win a great prize! If you are teaching someone during the series, you can also post a photo of your own or your friend’s tool kit for a chance to win. We have a list of our favorite tools and notions in this post, but yours doesn’t have to look like ours. Whatever works for you is fine.

Once you’ve earned your merit badge, here’s what you can enter to win!:


The Pfaff Passport 3.0 sewing machine! This machine isn’t even available to the public yet; the winner of this drawing will get one of the very first ones! This is a great, mid-level machine valued at $799!  Some of the awesome features include:

• The Original IDT™ (Integrated Duel Feed) System, only from PFAFF®

This is an amazing all-purpose machine, so whether you are a new or an experienced sewist, you will love the Pfaff Passport 3.0!
