Level 1 Supplies

Next up supplies, we can't sew without proper supplies. But not everything on the list is a must have right away. For me finding beeswax was not easy at least not for me with the limited amount of time places I had to shop when I started. Also he hem marker, I never have owned one and have not problem hemming my skirts for me its on and off with my skirts until its right or have a family member help when I can get one. Yes a little time consuming but I don't mind at all most of my skirts are ankle or floor length anyway so its not that hard to achieve. Mostly everything else I got pretty easily at Joann's and Walmart. I recommend one of those beginner kits from Dritz  they have most of what you need for a good starting price. I have one waiting for my daughter who is very eager to start sewing. I'm hoping to work with her this summer.
