My Nimble Craft Sewing Kit Review

 I'm not a professional when it comes to sewing but I can say I know enough about the basic things needed for sewing because we had a project back when I was in Grade 6 where we had to do our own chemise. I had a sewing kit back then and surprisingly, I can still remember most of the things I used to sew my own chemise.

When My Nimble Craft sent me their sewing kit, I was quite excited to see what's in store for me. It arrived in a black, durable zipper case with the logo of My Nimble Craft in front.
 Inside, the sewing materials are neatly arranged in a way that each has a garter to keep them in place and in plain view. Included inside the kit are the following:

* A 60" fuss free retractable push button tape measure
* A stainless steel Travel Scissors with safety cover
* A Seam Ripper with safety cover to pick out stitches
* A sturdy Needle Threader to thread a needle fast and easy
* A neat Needle Compact with 15 sharp needles for different fabrics. To retrieve the needles, simply rotate the needle compact to the corresponding needle slot and remove the needles
* 12 Spools of Sewing Thread in various colors
* A Metal Thimble to protect your fingers from the pointy ends of needles.
* 3 Safety Pins, 3 Shirt Buttons, 3 pairs of Snap Fasteners and 2 Bead Pins - These will come in handy to mend a tear in a hurry

I had a hard time figuring out the needle case inside and laughed at myself when I was finally able to retrieve the needles inside. I tried to pry the case open, turn it around and around and was almost close to destroying it when I figured out how to use it. There's a small hole on the side of the clear plastic and I had to rotate the hole in line with the needles' slots to get the needles to slide out. :) I like this protective case because (1) it would prevent the needles from accidentally spilling out of the hard plastic case. (2) My daughters wouldn't be able to accidentally release the needles from the case.

This sewing kit is a nice basic one and I like how it is organized. I like how I can do basic repairs at home as well as do simple crafts. The threads have very vibrant colors and I like how they're each in a spool.

I would like to see more of the pin heads as I call it, because for me, this is a must for sewing projects.
