Karen Kay Buckley scissors. I have two pairs of the blue handled 6" ones for appliqué and Mathea has a favourite pair of red handled curved blades snips. They have micro serrations, sharp slim points and soft flexible handles - brilliant!

We both like Clover self-threading needles for burying threads into our quilt tops. But we do recommend you use the correct size for the thread you are burying or they can shred your thread.

Mathea recommends Superior Threads for pre-wound bobbins and lots of information about thread and needles etc.
I recommend Sewline ceramic marking pens for marking my quilt tops before quilting. The mark goes on, stays on while you need it and then comes off when you want it to! They have different coloured leads for different coloured fabrics and I tend to just use the white and the green.

And we both recommend a sharp rotary cutting blade - go on, try changing your blade and enjoy the sensation!
