A beginner or a pro sewing Bee 🐝 get your staple haberdashery in Cheshire at The Sewing Gem

I’m Gem owner of The Sewing Gem, a self taught sewist if thats a word and I think that sewing is a brilliant forgotten hobbie thats great for all ages. I have always loved making things and find it theraputic but when I started sewing 6 years ago I found it impossible to find anywhere local that sold just the basics. What I mean by the basics is the staple products that we use to create most projects at a fair price. I’d find places but I was always searching through loads of patterned products or odd remnants which look amazing and great in my stash but basically often that’s all they were good for.

For your first sewing machine check these out

I just wanted plain colours to create my projects so that’s where my idea came from for the sewing gem because basically that’s what you get !!

Plain old Basics! No fuss no busy patterns just plain staple colours.

I stock the 2 most popular widths of ribbon and bias 1″ and 1/2″ in every colour you can think of but plain
