Sometimes the right tool or material makes all the difference in a craft. Yet there are so many options in a craft store that it becomes difficult to figure out what is actually useful and what will end up in a drawer after a single use. There is probably no one-size-fits-all answer, but here are a few things that I’ve found to be particularly useful myself.
If you intend to buy any of these things, may I suggest you start at a local supplier? Even if they don’t have it, they might be able to order it for you. Having a local craft store is such a nice thing, let’s support them and keep them in business!
