How to Buy Sewing Supplies

The Needle:
What size needle you use will depend on what type of fabric you are sewing. The common size of needles is somewhere between 9 and 18. The smaller the number, the smaller the needle, no matter what brand you use, or what number system is implemented. You can use a size 11 to 14 for almost any project your are doing. The smaller numbers are for fine fabrics, like sheer fabrics, and the larger numbers are for heavy fabrics, like denim. If you are using a material that has an elastic quality, use a ball point needle which allows the needle to pass between the material instead of through it so you don't lose its elasticity. Using a wedge point needle with leather and suede and vinyl will make a slit in the material instead of a large hole. Make sure that your needles are sharp before you start a project as a dull needle may rip your material.

The Sewing Machine:
The most important part of sewing would be the sewing machine. To find a sewing machine, check the internet for the different brands and features. Find out what features you absolutely must have, and the features that you would like to have. Set a budget and try to stick to it. Depending on the type of sewing you will be doing will determine what machine you get. Think about what you'll do with the machine to get a better idea of what you want.

The Thread:
When you start to sew with your new machine and needles, its time to buy the thread to use. When you are looking for the thread, try and match the most dominant color in the fabric. If you are unable to find a good match, make sure you go with a darker shade rather than a lighter shade as a lighter shade will be much more prominant. Fabrics that have little or no stretch can be stitched with cotten thread. If you are machine stitching or hand stitching, the most common thread to use is polyester thread to allow the stitches to stretch. For fine fabrics, such as sheer fabrics or fabric that is used for lingerie, go with a fine cotton or silk thread. If you have any elasticity to the material, go with the silk thread instead of the cotton. Heavy duty thread should be used for stiff fabrics or need some extra reinforcement. If you are unsure of what type of thread to get, you can always as an associate at the store for some help.
