Easy Sew U.S.A. Founder Introduces Mini Sewing Kit for Travel, Recreation and Fashion Emergencies for Adults and Children


Langley, WA -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/17/2013 -- Katherine Ginn, owner and founder of Easy Sew U.S.A., has announced that her compact mini sewing kit is now available on Amazon.com. The sewing kit comes complete in a CD-size case with everything needed to mend any garment in the event of a fashion emergency or natural disaster.

“I wanted a mini sewing kit that would not crack, break or open unexpectedly,” said Ginn. “I’m excited to have found a manufacturer to meet all of these specifications.”

Easy Sew U.S.A. grew out of Ginn’s frustration with existing sewing kits on the market that didn’t meet her exacting standards. She began offering her creation at her Whidbey Island store in Washington State and it quickly became one of the store’s hottest sellers. The mini sewing kit’s success was the impetus needed to offer it on Amazon.com, the leading online retailer.

The mini sewing kit contains scissors, 10 needles and two easy threaders, along with 12 spools of variously colored thread, a seam ripper and three shirt buttons. The contents are rounded out with bobby pins, safety pins, a measuring tape and thimble, and a nylon zippered case that keeps the contents secure.

The lightweight nylon case measures a diminutive 4.5x1x4.9 inches and weighs a mere 2.9 oz., making it the right size for stocking stuffers and favors for sewing parties. Sewing is becoming a lost skill, but one that Ginn believes should be encouraged. The set is appropriate for a child’s first sewing kit and those interested in arts and craft projects. The kit includes supplies suitable for a child’s first creative foray with needle and thread.

Ginn designed the kit to be practical yet portable, allowing it to be easily tucked in abackpack, briefcase or bug-out bag. The compact size makes it a good choice to include in a purse, as part of a camping trip or for students leaving for college. Ginn has included everything needed for quick repairs required by those with experience or the novice.

Mini sewing kits are enjoying a resurgence in popularity by individuals throughout the world. Small, portable sewing kits have been in use since the 16th century and many are on display in museums. They were first carried by attendants of nobility and were an indispensable item for early settlers and explorers in the U.S. Mini kits were available for mending everything from clothing to the bridle of a rider’s mount.

At one time, a mini sewing kit was an integral part of every girl’s basic possessions. They were created by a girl’s female relative and were sometimes handed down as a keepsake through multiple generations.The trend extended to bachelors and young men going away to the “big city”. A sewing kit was often offered as a basic amenity in hotel rooms. Professional costumers always kept one close at hand and they were issued to military personnel.

Ginn has taken modern technology and updated the traditional mini sewing kit for today’s user on the go. The release of the mini sewing kit on Amazon.com provides individuals around the globe with a small and portable kit for work, recreation and in times of dire need. The sewing kit offers the means for children to experience the joys of sewing and provides adults with a practical solution for quick mending.
