Gift For Quilters – Buying Criteria

Quilting Level 

For the extra picky recipient, you may want to stick with a more personalized gift instead of sewing supplies. Some quilters are very particular and want to buy their own supplies. Instead, try to choose items that will appeal to even the picky, like storage containers or a notebook, and let them pick out the tools they need for the job. 

Quilters who are new to sewing may not have a lot of supplies yet and may not even know what they need. For them, consider getting tools they may not know they need, like an iron or a sewing table. With so little in their collection, pretty much anything on this list will be helpful to their sewing collection. 

Types of Gifts 

Many of these gifts are personal gifts that simply enhance life for a quilter, while others are tools that help with quilting. Women who are very pragmatic may prefer useful gifts over a music box or a pillow. Consider getting them something useful they may not own, like a strip lighting for their machine or the trim catcher. 

Other women who own enough sewing tools to open their own store consider getting a fun gift that’s also useful, like the coasters or a water cup. Decor is another great option too to help them make their sewing room more aesthetically pleasing. Don’t worry, whatever you buy they will know is a gift from the heart. 

Project-Based Gifts 

Another way to help figure out what gift to buy is to find out what kind of quilting they like to do. Some women may prefer to do crazy quilts and other intricate patterns. Both styles of quilts require different items, although many items will overlap. When in doubt, pick items that work for any sewer, like an iron, cutting mat, shears, or pins. 

FAQs About Gifts for Quilters

Should I buy fabric for a quilter? 

Fabric can be a very personal choice, and it’s best to leave fabric to the quilter. However, if they have expressed interest in a specific type of fabric, then you can get that or even a gift card. Discuss with the quilter or someone close to the quilter before picking fabric for them. 

Would thread make a good gift? 

Thread is another personal item and can depend on the type of fabric. Some quilters will only use polyester fabric, while others will use only cotton. Also, thread size is important too as large quilts will need longer spools. 

Furthermore, each quilt may need a different color of thread and even multiple colors in one quilt. It’s best to choose standard colors like white or black for a quilter and check their supply to see which brand and type they prefer first. 

What gift on this list is the most useful? 

Many of the gifts on this list are extremely useful, but it depends on each individual quilter. However, our favorites are the iron, the trim keeper, and the LED strip lights that go on the sewing machine, as these are useful for every sewer. Additionally, having multiples of these items will not bother any sewer as they are so useful. 

Should I get a quilting book as a gift? 

Many quilters get their online nowadays, but many still love books. However, books can be very personal as well as only they know what they are willing to quilt. Therefore, it’s best to stick to a book with tips and tricks to help improve skills or keep important information close to hand.
