Quilt notions are simply quilting supplies you need (besides fabric, of course!) to help you sew. And believe us, we have a lot of quilting supplies online for you to choose from! But before we get carried away with the possibilities, let’s begin simply.
Quilting Supplies for Beginners
If you’re a beginner, here are the most important quilting supplies and tools you’ll need to get started: sewing scissors, quilting thread, a rotary cutter and mat, quilting rulers, and sewing needles (watch the video above to see some of Jenny Doan's favorite quilting notions!).
Using quality quilt notions will make your sewing experience much better than using old notions that might not be as functional anymore.
For example, it’s always a good idea to get a sharp pair of fabric scissors. And while your sewing machine may already have a needle in it, chances are it’s pretty worn out. Get yourself a fresh set of sewing machine needles and replace your needle after about every eight hours of use. That’s right! Sewing machine needles get dull more quickly than you might imagine.
And when it comes to rotary cutters, find one that feels comfortable in your hand and get a new blade. Quilting rulers are super handy to make sure your fabrics are cut and measured correctly. That way, when you sew everything together, you’ll have greater success!
In reality, you don’t need that many quilt tools to get the job done, but additional specialty notions sure make sewing a pleasure!
