Sewing supplies for beginners doesn't have to be a costly investment. I purchased one of those pre-packaged sewing kits, and found that I only used one item from the kit. I think the idea of them is good, but I found the materials in the kit I purchased were of sub-par quality.
Now, that I've had a couple of years experience with the tools I do have, I put together this video to go over the essential sewing supplies for beginners.
For a list of all of the tools covered in this video, please visit my Amazon store here.
