Stuffing stockings for my family is my absolute favorite part of the holiday. A few years ago I made king size stockings for everyone, just to accommodate my obsession. I love little, thoughtful things that I don’t have to wrap.

These sewing and quilting supplies are personal favorites, some are based on powerful endorsements from friends, and some have been on my own wish list for ages. If you know someone who sews, you’re sure to find something they’ll love. If you sew, I’m sure you’ll be able to drop some great hints to Santa.
