  1. This looks interesting! I love all of my tools! I have a fold up seam ripper I use a lot, but I also love my tiny ironing board. It’s only about a foot long, and great for ironing kids clothes while sewing.

  2. Gwendolyn Soberay says:

    My sewing students named my seam ripper as the sharp stick. Nobody uses it except teacher Gwendolyn they said. I love this awesome tool.

  3. Carmi says:

    I love all my gadgets for sewing and quilting. If I have to choose one, it would be the seam ripper. It’s gets me out of a lot of problems.

  4. Diane Standish says:

    I love my Gingher scissors!

  5. Christine says:

    My favorite sewing tool is my rotary cutter and rulers!! LOVE!

  6. lara M says:

  8. Sandra Chavez says:

    I’m afraid this ISN”T my favorite tool, but it is one of my most used – the seam ripper (or “unsewer”) — I DO love my sewing machine and my embellisher (felting machine).

  9. kim meadows says:

    I love me some fray check! Its great for appliques and for ribbons!

  10. Rotary cutter..I would love the turning mat. That is next on my list.

  11. Lorna Calaway says:

    My favorite sewing tool is a thread spindle holder that holds large spools of thread on the table behind my sewing machine. I use up those small spools too quickly that fit on the spindle of the sewing machine.

  12. Heidi says:

    It would have to be the magnetic pin savers (since they often save the bobbin from rolling off of the sewing table) and the purple thang !!

  13. Kim Santre says:

    definitely the tube turner. it helps you save so much time!!!!!

  14. I love my Quilt Patis! They go anywhere you take your hands. Easiest piecing of hexagons on the go. I have even covered Quilt Patis on the freeway in the driver’s seat… we were stopped with engines off for a 3 hour accident clean up. Looking at my fabric was much better than the mess ahead.

  15. Jane C. says:

    My favorite sewing tool are my (gingher) embroidery scissors. When they are misplaced, I panic. They are always sharp and precise. Love them. ( I bought them on ebay from a lot of scissors that had been confiscated by the TSA.

  16. Sue Haver says:

    Although I use my seam ripper(s) more often than most of my sewing tools, it is not my favorite,because if I’m using it, I’ve sewn something wrong. haha. I guess my favorite tool would be my scissors and rotary cutters…these are the beginnings of NEW PROJECTS! :)

  17. Maria Kievit says:

    I like my seam ripper and that purple thang! Without them, it’s hard to keep it all correct and straight!

  18. My favorite sewing tool is my hot pink, heart-shaped wrist pin cushion. Filled with sharp glass head pins, it makes me smile each time I sit down to sew. I’m totally lost without it!

  19. Noemy kreidl says:

    I think my favorite is the seam ripper too….

  20. Ali M says:

    My favorite is my 18 mm rotary cutter, it has gotten me through some hard times!

  21. Michaela Pochily says:

    I love my seam ripper. It was my mothers which makes it pretty old, and it is fat which makes it good for my carpal tunnel. Thanks MOM.

  22. Lexie L says:

    My seam ripper. It gets used quite a bit.

  23. Joanne Hios says:

    I love my thread snippers but I also use my seam ripper a lot!

  24. Beulah says:

    My favorite sewing tool is: my portable electric bobbin winder.

  25. Karen A says:

    I have many tools that I couldn’t function without, but I think my favorite is my rotary cutter.

  26. Karen says:

    I love my magnetic pin holder.

  27. Leyna says:

    My rotary cutter is my favorite tool! I’m such a perfectionist when it comes to straight & even edges – yet I struggle to accomplish that with scissors. Once I discovered the rotary cutter (and self-healing mats) I never looked back!

  28. emilie vangel says:

    my favorite tool is my 1/4″ seam ruler,i would be lost without it,esp. during quilting.

  29. janice says:

    Seam ripper!!! use it all the time, and have several of them.

  30. Lauren A says:

    I use my seam ripper alot… but truly my favorite sewing tool is my rotary cutter. I use it so much I actually have to replace the blade every so many months.

  31. Patsi Novia says:

    My favorite little tool would have to be my thread clippers and seam rippers….. I have many!!

  32. Kate Bachman says:

    Can’t leave without my seam ripper.

  33. Donna cooper says:

    I love my rotary cutter, ruler and mat… can’t live without it!….AND my Iron….I press every seam.

  34. Kim West says:

    gotta say it too. the seam ripper. I repurpose clothing so it is a great tool for harvesting and salvaging usable parts.

  35. Pat Hersl says:

    That Purple Thang, or a bamboo skewer when that doesn’t work.

  36. Mary Jo says:

    I hate to admit it but mine is also my small blue seam ripper. Now I keep an extra one on hand in case it breaks. I can’t sew without it!!

  37. Andrea says:

    My ChacoLiner chalk pen. Can’t live without it!

  38. Amanda says:

    I love my rotary cutter, rulers, and mats. Without them, I would never be able to cut out a straight line.

  39. Linda T says:

    While I love my seam ripper alot, I think my all-time favorite tool is my magnetic pin cushions. I have 5 of them, all different colors and each holds a different type of pin. Not all magnetic pin cushions are the same…some are junk but the good ones are worth the price paid for them and more.

  40. Dee Bratcher says:

    The stilleto for holding your fabric while stitching…… is wonderful and helps prevent puckering of seams…..I find I use this even when using my even feed foot. In fact I keep mine in a pocket on the bulletin board above my sewing machine so it is always there for me.

  41. Jeanne says:

    My collection rotary cutters, rulers and mats…..I hate cutting projects out and they combine to make cutting both easier and accurate in many cases!

  42. Amy Boughner says:

    Favorite sewing tool? My beautiful sewing scissors. One I’m most familiar with, though, is the seam ripper.

  43. Charlotte says:

    My sewing machine! If I’m using a seam ripper that means I’ve done something wrong, but having a REALLY COOL one to use would make it less painful! ;-)

  44. Ellen O'Bryan says:

    Love my 1/4″ double-sided wash-a-way tape! Makes sure my seams match!

  45. Joyce Hildreth says:

    my favorite sewing tool? ah…let me count them!! my favorite ruler 6″x 12″…always reaching for that one! and my favorite NEW tool is the havel sew ezey spring scissors..makes an excellent seam ripper!!

  46. Kimberly N says:

    That Purple Thang! I use it all the time and the best part is, if I leave it out, the toddler can safely play with it. :)

  47. Janice Baldwin says:

    My lighted seam ripper

  48. Sandra Jackson says:

    The seam ripper is my favorite.

  49. Viviana says:

    My seam ripper. I’m very absent-minded, and often I stitch things the wrong way :P

  50. Terri says:

    I love my seam ripper. It’s fun to rip stuff out.
