The standard kits include a sailmakers palm, needles, beeswax and waxed thread.

There are kits offered at a lot of chandlers but the palms often aren't very good. A quick stitcher can be a handy gizmo. Something like this: Quick Stitch Sewing Awl

By the way, was that supposed to be "do your own cushions"? If your sewing up your cousin you might want finer tools then for sewing up your sails
