SPECIAL UTENSIL FOR THE SEWING BOX
Use a chopstick when turning dimensional pieces right side out. It doesn't poke through the corner (like some other tools).
KEEP IT FRESH
Don't get stuck in a rut (on your mat). Change your rotary cutter blade:
Nicked and dull blades will ruin your mat and have you stuck in a rut.
I use an old blade in a designated paper/plastic cutter on an old mat (or the back side of a mat).

Find a sewing machine to suit your needs. The extra frills are only necessary if machine embellishments are part of the project. A heavy-duty iron is also a must-have for perfect piecing.
