21 Gift Ideas for Your Sewy Friends

21 Gift Ideas for Your Sewy Friends
I had such fun putting together the Maisilene Gift Guide, that I decided to make one for the Sara Parker Textiles blog, with a focus on sewing.
These gift ideas could be for a skilled sewist, or a beginner just getting their feet wet. I hope it gives you some different ideas and inspiration to spark a little creativity in someone's life.
