Welcome to Feed Our Life’s Supply Shop, for all your basic sewing & craft requirements!
It is essential to use the correct tools and equipment for all your creative projects for a professional finish. Not only that, it makes life much simpler and far more fun!
Over the years I have hoarded boxes of fantastic tools that I use in my sewing & craft room. I have created a list of my favorite tools and equipment below. Please note that I do not sell these products myself, but they are offered by Amazon, one of my affiliate partners. Remember, the products featured are tools and equipment I personally own or have on my wish list!
