Other Tools and Accessories

Some tools are a standard part of any sewing project, regardless of what style of stitching you’re doing. Here are a few of the essentials that you’ll need at your disposal.

  • Surge Protector – Prevent electrical issues with your sewing machine by having a high quality surge protector in place just like you would with any other pricy electronic item.
  • Scissors – You’ll want to have a few different pairs of scissors handy in order to make any project simpler. Choose several sizes and be sure to select ones that have comfortable handles as you’ll be using them often with your more complex projects.
  • Marking pen/pencil – Don’t ever catch yourself without a marking pen or pencil handy. You don’t want to have to stop in the middle of work to track one down.
  • Stitch Remover – A missed stitch can be a real hassle if you don’t have a stitch remover, but with one you can make quick work of corrections and get back to the task at hand in no time.
  • Spool Holders – Keep all your threads organized and tidy with spool holders and avoid those irritating snags and knots that just get in the way of progress.

The best embroidery and sewing machines will be those that offer plenty of accessories to help you make the most of your hobby or business activities. There are a number of accessories that can be beneficial in the embroidery process. Here are just a few of the essential and “nice-to-have” tools to consider.
