Must-Have Needle and Thread

Martha Stewart Living, April 2010

Readers often ask us: What's the best basic sewing machine? 

This Singer is it, says our crafts editor Nicholas Andersen. 

"It's not complicated but has a full set of functions -- you'll keep it forever." 

Our thread of choice is Gutermann polyester. It's stronger than cotton types and comes in terrific colors. 

Singer Confidence $250, 

Sew-All Thread $2 for a 110-meter spool, by Gutermann,
