Merchant & Mills
The ability to sew on a button or hem pants are skills that were once commonplace, but have become somewhat lost with younger generations. English draper Merchant & Mills is doing its best to keep such waning artistry alive with its Selected Notions Box Set.
The embossed sewing box comes with removable inserts that accommodate what Merchant & Mills considers to be the nine sewing essentials: fine-quality needles, wide bow scissors, a needle threader, dressmaking pins, tailor’s beeswax, chalk and thimble, a seam ripper and a tape measure.
Hopefully, the rather dapper presentation of this particular sewing kit is just the way to reduce reluctant sewers into submission.
