Best Sewing Kits 2021 (for Beginners and Professionals)

If you are looking for the perfect sewing kit then you are at the right place. I have put together a list of sewing kits that would satisfy different needs and sewists in different stages of their sewing journey. Before choosing a sewing kit, make sure to keep in mind the stage of sewing expertise you are at and what you need it for.

Some of the sewing kits on this list are very basic while others are a little more advanced.

However, if you are buying a sewing kit for long term sewing you may want to buy more than one of the options on the list. I say this because one of the sewing kit sets is only for measurement and cutting cloth.

Most of the kits here have the regular sewing supplies in a neat box or pouch. Nonetheless, I have also included a sewing machine kit and a few recommendations on how to build your own sewing kit.

Every sewist should have these supplies and this sewing kit comes with a lovely wooden box too.  

This is a quick list of contents:

  • sewing thread in 24 colours
  • 1 extra white and 1 black thick thread
  • assortment of sewing needles
  • seam ripper
  • buttons
  • needle threader tools
  • thimble, measuring tape
  • thread clippers
  • scissors
  • thimble
  • needle cushion
  • seam ripper


It is an amazing assortment of the basic sewing supplies every sewing kit should have. You’ll be able to mend almost any seam with this kit at home. I love the scissors. The box has two wooden dividers that make three compartments. Everything fits neatly inside and is completely accessible.


There are no bobbins so it will not be a great purchase if you are buying it for your sewing machine. I found it nice and useful but a little small, but I do have too much sewing equipment.

Honestly, as an organiser junky, I love all the sewing kits on this list. Furthermore, I have put three or four for beginners so you can choose the style of storage your sewing kit comes in.

It is small enough to easily store away or use for travelling.


This sewing kit is very basic and small. If you are looking for lots of space for all your sewing supplies then you may want to skip this one.

I think if we had to say “the ultimate sewing kit” this one would be number one. It has all the basic sewing supplies as well as a mini machine. The scissors are lovely and wonderfully sharp too.


There are only 12 thread spools which for me is not a downside as I’d rather pick my own thread colours.

It is an affordable sewing kit with a sewing machine. If you are scraped for money, a beginner sewist or want to buy a beginner sewist a complete sewing kit then I highly recommend this kit.

It’s small, lightweight and easy to use. The machine has a lot of functionality for a small sewing machine. You get the very basic threads with your purchase. Definitely a great sewing kit for any beginner.


I’d say this is not a good buy for seasoned sewists. I would prefer to spend a little more money on a genuine Singer sewing machine and buy the sewing supplies separately. Because the machine is battery charged, it will not have a longer life than two years. Keep this in mind, if you want to buy it for the long run this is not the machine for you.

It is easy to use and keep everything organised. you can have all the basic sewing supplies in one place. All the basic sewing equipment like thread, needles, scissors measuring tape are inside the pouch. What I loved the most is the elastic bands that hold all your thread spools in place. So your sewing supplies are always tidy.


There are only three fabric clips and the very basic colours of thread. This sewing kit is good for travelling and beginner sewists. I would not recommend it for professional sewists.

This is a metallic, embroidery thread, sewing kit. It comes in three variations. You can get a regular sewing kit that comes in the same organiser with normal cotton thread. This is definitely a more professional sewing kit and the thread spools are made for a sewing machine. You can use it as a regular sewing kit as well.

The kit comes with needles that are specifically made for metallic thread.

The best part for me is that it has lots of space for all my threads. Some of the draws come all the way out so you can use them like trays. I think this is a great purchase for professional or more advanced sewists.


Call me old fashioned but I do prefer wooden boxes to plastic boxes, although, with the transparency, you can easily scan the box for what you want.
