    Interestingly enough, in British English, a haberdasher is a person or business that sells small items for sewing, knitting, and dressmaking, such as buttons, ribbons, and zippers while in the United States, the term refers to a store that sells men's clothing, such as suits, shirts, and neckties.

     

    What Is Haberdashery

    Generally however, when we refer to haberdashery, we think about small articles used for sewing, such as buttons, zips, and thread, which are sold by a shop or in the haberdashery department of a large shop.

    Haberdashery also includes decorative trims, fabric dyes and clothing patterns.

     

    Different Types of Haberdashery for Sale at MHC World

    Under the general term of haberdashery, one can discern between essential items and optional items.

     

    Essential supplies

    Essential items needed for sewing include the following:

    • Needles - Sewing machine needles come in several sizes and types to sew different kinds of fabrics. Make sure you buy various sizes and keep them safely and neatly in a convenient container.
      • ​70 – for light-weight fabrics
      • 80 – for medium-weight fabrics
      • 90 – for medium/heavy weight fabrics
      • 100 – for heavy-weight fabrics
      • Universal –for pretty much anything
      • ​Ball point/stretch/jersey needles – they have rounded points for sewing knitted fabrics (they push through the fibres and don’t pierce them).
    • Thimbles to use for protecting your fingers when sewing something by hand.
    • Tape measure – to take correct measurements
    • Thread – You can keep a stash of reels of thread in various colours, or you can shop for thread every time you need some.
      • Polyester is a strong thread that can be used for most sewing projects. It also comes in a lot of different colours, so it is easy to find one that goes with your latest project
      • Natural cotton is helpful if you want to make a quilt out of cotton fabric. Also good for covering ironing boards, making oven gloves, and other things that might get hot
      • Extra strong thread is good for projects like upholstery and bags that need heavy-duty polyester thread.
    • Pins, pin cushions, and safety pins
    • Scissors – Keep sharp scissors just for cutting fabric as well as scissors for all other purposes.
    • Stitch ripper – for undoing seams.

     

    Optional supplies

    Optional items can include any or all of the following:

    • The eyelet maker punches a hole in the fabric and fits a metal eyelet into it
    • Fabric glue or iron-on fabric bonding tape
    • Bias tape: for hemming floating skirts
    • Fastenings: buttons, press studs, zips, toggles, frog fasteners, and hooks and eyes.

     

    How to Use Haberdashery Creatively

    If you want to learn how to use haberdashery creatively, learn how to sew on buttons and fix and shorten garments. Getting good at these basic skills will also give you a solid base to build on if you want to make your own clothes and home decorations.

    Upcycling is somewhere between fixing something and making something new. It can be as easy as adding a lace trim or fancy buttons or as hard as turning a big silk blouse into a skinny silk dress.

    No matter what your goal is, a visit to your haberdashery shop is the first step.

    Even if you use a pattern to sew something, you can still make it your own by adding your own finishing touches, like decorating fabric with simple stitches using fancy threads or embroidery threads.

    Pre-made trimmings are a great way to give your clothes a quick and cheap makeover. Trims and embellishments come in many colours and sizes.

    Some common trims are rickrack, lace, ribbon, feather trims, ruffles, fringe, piping, cord, sequined trim, beaded trim, and braid.

    Lastly, do not worry if you mess up your first project. You can always take a deep breath, take it apart, and start over. Your mind is the only real limit.

    Artists have known for a long time how many ways fabric can be used and how beautiful it can be. Soft sculptures can be made and used in performances, and artists are not limited in how they can show hardness, scale, or visual weight.

    Haberdashery is a complicated sewing art and skill that involves stitching, adding buttons and zippers, and decorating fabrics and other textiles in a wider way.

    People have different ideas about whether or not haberdashery is an art. As an art form, sewing and haberdashery involve making stitches with a thread and a needle to join or bring things together.

    You must have the needle, the thread, and the thing you want to sew on hand. Sewing is an art form since it takes skill and dexterity to do it well.

    Using haberdashery is a great hobby because it lets you work with fabric and use both your artistic and practical skills. The fabric and thread that haberdashers work with are their canvases. Sewing is an art form because it lets us show who we are.

    Fast fashion has made it less important for people to sew their own clothes at home. But sewing and haberdashery have always let people make things to fit their needs. This ability to make one-of-a-kind items is what draws millennials and Gen Z to the craft.

    Modern sewers want to make one-of-a-kind things for themselves and their homes that are cheaper than things that can be bought in stores.

    With the Internet, new fashion designers no longer need a fashion house to market and sell their work for them to make money.

    Some stores are now getting in on the action and offering places where artists of all kinds, like seamstresses and haberdashers, can go to take workshops, rent tools, and sell their work to the public.

    Some shops have started programmes where customers can bring in their own used clothes and learn how to upcycle and reuse them. Some shops even sell sewing repair kits to encourage stitching.

    Millennials already make up more than half of the crafts market, and crafters, sewers, and haberdashers are all tech-savvy and creative nowadays.

    It might seem like sewing is a lost art, but thankfully, that is not the case. Because the haberdashery community and its technologies are always changing and adapting, they continue to attract new generations of haberdashers.

     

    How to Choose Haberdashery

    When looking for a Haberdashery, you should consider the following:

    • The purpose of the project for which it is used – must it keep the project together (like a strong thread) or is it purely for decoration
    • Is it durable enough and will it last through a wash if it is for a wearable project
    • Does it match the texture of the fabric on which it is going to be used
    • Will you be able to clean the item, or can it be washed with a garment?
    • Will it keep its form, lustre or shine, or will it fade, rust or disintegrate?
    • Consider the various things you will do with it when buying things like scissors, buttons, needles, and more.
