If you are a skater or dancer – or the parent of a skater or dancer – you need to carry a travel sewing kit with you on every trip – even if it’s just across town for a day competition.

Yes, this applies to you folks who think you cannot sew on a button.  Safety pins and elastic can work miracles even for the sewing challenged. 😉

For those of you that do sew, you probably already have a home sewing room, and have a good idea as to what you might need in a travel sewing kit.

Never, ever expect that everything will go as planned. If something happens to your dress at the last minute, you need to have a travel sewing kit with you so you can fix the problem, at least temporarily.

Now that you’re convinced you need one, what do you put in your “save-the-day” travel sewing kit?


Watch this video for a list of the essential items, a few professional tips – and some possible emergency uses!

Best yet, I created a handy FREE download to keep on your computer or phone so you know what to pack or buy. So, there’s no need for note-taking.

Next I created a comprehensive list for those who are professional dressmakers or like to be prepared to help out dancers and skaters in need.

Lastly, for you non-sewers, I created a list with the bare essentials for your travel sewing kit so you’re not overwhelmed, yet you still get to come to the rescue with handy items.

Leave your info below. You will receive an email with The BASIC REPAIR KIT list and the COMPLETE TRAVEL KIT list.
